The healthcare legislation passed by Congress should be repealed, Mitt Romney said today. The former Massachuetts governor also accused President Obama of "bribery" and "fraudulent accounting."

In a statement, Romney called the passage a "historic usurpation of the legislative process":

[Obama] unleashed the nuclear option, enlisted not a single Republican vote in either chamber, bribed reluctant members of his own party, paid-off his union backers, scapegoated insurers, and justified his act with patently fraudulent accounting. What Barack Obama has ushered into the American political landscape is not good for our country; in the words of an ancient maxim, “what starts twisted, ends twisted.”

He concludes: "For these reasons and more, the act should be repealed. That campaign begins today."
