(AP) - Texas Gov. Rick Perry and former Sen. Pennsylvania Rick Santorum have been tag-teaming presidential rival Mitt Romney over Massachusetts' health care law.

Romney said during Tuesday night's GOP debate that "Obamacare is bad news" and he pledges to repeal it.

Perry says Romney is being dishonest about his record on the law that Democrats used as a model for their national health care plan.

Santorum was more direct: "You just don't have credibility, Mitt."

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich also piled on, calling it a big-government take-over of health care.

It was the strongest criticism Romney has faced in a debate on Massachusetts' health care law.

During one moment, both Perry and Santorum interrupted Romney's defense of the plan as right for his
state but wrong for the nation.

Yep...perry's got the inside scoop on health care...just drop 120,000 children from Texas Medicaid...gets lots of them off the rolls when they most need immunizations, medications for illnesses, emergency medical attention...just drop the young, the old, those with chronic health issues...and without a safety net, you can bet ER visits are going to skyrocket...and, folks...who pays for those visits? You and me!! Do not vote teavangelicals in, and vote teavangelicals out! Nov. 4, 2012.
