Mitt Romney“We don’t have a setting across this country where if you don’t have insurance, we just say to you, ‘Tough luck, you’re going to die when you have your heart attack,’ ” he said as he offered more hints as to what he would put in place of “Obamacare,” which he has pledged to repeal.
“No, you go to the hospital, you get treated, you get care, and it’s paid for, either by charity, the government or by the hospital. We don’t have people that become ill, who die in their apartment because they don’t have insurance.”
First of all, people with chronic illnesses do get sick and die because they don't have insurance.
Second, if he and Paul Ryan get the chance to gut Medicaire and Medicaid, then there will be even more poor chronically ill people dying for lack of insurance.
How does someone this out of touch get this close to the Oval Office?
