Healthcare reform attacked in GOP debate

It's no secret most Republicans are no fans of President Obama's healthcare reform law.

So it came to no surprise that it was heavily criticized during Monday night's GOP debate.

But the presidential hopefuls were fairly muted in their criticism of GOP front runner Mitt Romney, who was governor of Massachusetts when healthcare reform passed there.

They treaded lightly around the subject choosing to attack the president rather than each other. Even Former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty, who this weekend called Romney's healthcare plan "Obamneycare," wouldn't broach the issue.

Romney has defended his plan, in part saying it didn't raise taxes so was different from the federal plan.

What did you all think of the Republicans playing nice with each other? Should this debate have been about the who would be the best GOP candidate and not Obama policies?

What about Romney healthcare plan? Is it really any different than the federal plan?

Give us your thoughts.
