Mitt Romney said Barack Obama is "out of touch" with small business owners and their struggles with the president's signature health care law, Obamacare.

“Now just yesterday, the president said something else that shows just how much out of touch he is," Romney said at a rally in Orlando. "He said he didn’t understand that Obamacare was hurting small business, doesn’t understand that Obamacare impacts small business." Romney cited a Chamber of Commerce study that showed 75 percent of small-business owners said Obamacare's regulations would prevent them from hiring more workers.

"It’s not only bad policy and bad for middle income families and bad for small business, it’s simply unaffordable. And so the right course for us, is to make sure that the next President of the United States repeals Obamacare and replaces Obamacare," Romney added.
