So, now we are back to the old "let them use the emergency room" solution.

Mr. Romney is an idiot. What is he thinking? What are his campaign staff thinking?

I am always assumed that Mr. Romney was disinterested and unengaged.

But not stupid.

I was wrong.

Just use the ER? Romney is just an ingrained ultra-rich man who has lived no other life and cannot fathom what it means to be poor. He considers himself and his wife above the crowd. He is blind, deaf and dumb when it comes to empathy and understanding that ordinary hard working people have the right to living a decent life with real healthcare. He fired thousands to make his millions with no understanding the he was destroying families. It's all just spreadsheets to him...... and Ann wants us to stop picking on him. Perhaps she would like to have us wash his feet

But in his defense did Romeny mean that an ER won't turn down a dying person in IMMEDIATE need of care OR did he mean go to the ER for anything from tummy aches to the sniffles?

mittwit is a typical trust fund baby without a twinge of compassion for those less fortunate. He openly mocks the uninsured and those that actually have to work for a living. During the Vite Nam war this cowardly draft dodger thought it was more important to serve his cult than his country.

So Mitt tells the truth and LEFTY gets bent out of shape....again.

It's supported by everybody else paying higher rates while the uninsured , with sniffles , tries to get free drugs for their habits ( just ask any ER doc. as I did ).

Plus the county hospital system is designed to support the uninsured.

Front page yesterday " State (Az.) pays for 53% of all births ".

So if you get a cold go to the emergency room and tell them Mitt sent you.

Why do tax payers pay for health insurance for members of congress? They should be responsible and pay for their own health insurance.

Why do tax payers pay for retirement benefits for members of congress? They should be more responsible and pay for their own retirement.

Members of congress need to be more responsible and stop depending on government.
