Report: Mitt Romney plan leaves 72M uninsured

By BRETT NORMAN | 10/2/12 7:43 AM EDT

Mitt Romney’s health care plan wouldn’t just insure fewer people than “Obamacare”— it would make the uninsured problem worse than it would have been if the law had never passed, according to a comparison of the two plans released Tuesday morning.

The analysis by the Commonwealth Fund, a New York-based health care research foundation, found that under Romney’s health care plan, the uninsured population would soar to 72 million by 2022 — 12 million higher than if nothing had been done at all.

By contrast, if President Barack Obama’s health care law is fully implemented — including complete state participation in the now voluntary Medicaid expansion — the number of uninsured people would drop from 47.9 million in 2011 to about 27.1 million people in 2022, the report estimated.

The Commonwealth Fund produces studies that often cast the national health care law in a favorable light, and spotlight the shortcomings of the American health care system compared to other countries.
The number of insured Americans would rise in every age group under the Affordable Care Act and fall in every group under Romney’s plan, Sara Collins, vice president for Commonwealth’s affordable health insurance program, told reporters in a conference call Monday.
The report says most of the difference is due to Romney’s plans for Medicaid, which he would turn into block grants, and the expansion of Medicaid that’s planned under the ACA. The gap between those two proposals accounts for about 80 percent of the difference in their impact on the uninsured, according to the analysis.
The Commonwealth Fund report is based on research by MIT economist Jonathan Gruber, who worked on both the federal and Massachusetts health reform laws, and is the latest dire forecast from ACA sympathizers about health care under a Romney administration.

More Right Wing Health Care News:

Last night, a 2008 speech surfaced of Republican candidate Todd Akin saying, among other ludicrous statements, that doctors perform abortions on women "who are not actually pregnant."

Today, Buzzfeed's Rebecca Berg contacted Rep. Akin's campaign for comment and, guess what, they're standing by the comments.

"There's ample evidence that abortion doctors on any number of occasions have deceived women into thinking that they're pregnant, and then collect money for a procedure that they don't perform," said Rick Tyler, a spokesperson for Akin's campaign. "And I say they don't perform it because obviously the women weren't pregnant."

Yes, Akin is claiming there's a secret faction of rogue doctors performing fake abortions for profit.

You just can't make this stuff up.
