In another move that shows just how out-of-touch Mitt Romney is with the majority of Americans, he told the Columbus Dispatch that people without health insurance don’t have to worry about dying as a result.

Romney said : “We don’t have people that become ill, who die in their apartment because they don’t have insurance.”

Um, not true. Reuters reported on research that released earlier this year which found more than 26,000 working-age adults die prematurely in the United States each year because they lack health insurance.

I shouldn’t be surprised that he said this because he also said people without health insurance can get medical attention by visiting the emergency room.

    Romney is right about one thing. The POOR have a safety net unlike the middle class.
    We are starting to see the fallout of the Health Care Plan. Prices are starting to go through the roof and it isn’t fully implemented yet. And a National Resturant chain is starting to experiment with putting their FULL TIME employees on PART TIME. Just what we need right now, more part time jobs. There are many things that are good about the plan, but 27,000 pages of rules and regulations is not one of them.
