The minute-long ad laid out a simple itinerary for Romney's first day as president, if elected: "The Supreme Court may have made their decision, but the American people haven't. Day one. Job one. Repeal ObamaCare."

"ObamaCare raises taxes on the American people by $500 billion," Romney said Thursday at a press conference across the street from the U.S. Capitol. "ObamaCare cuts Medicare — cuts Medicare by approximately $500 billion.
