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.
