Mitt's Plan: Uninsured Should go to Candy Mountain, I mean the ER


gif from thegifinyourfolder

"Well, we do provide care for people who don't have insurance. If someone has a heart attack, they don't sit in their apartment and die. We pick them up in an ambulance, and take them to the hospital, and give them care. And different states have different ways of providing for that care."
Mitt Romney in an interview with Scott Pelley of CBS's "60 Minutes" that aired Sunday night

Contradiction ~ Etch-A-Sketch 2010
Look, it doesn't make a lot of sense for us to have millions and millions of people who have no health insurance and yet who can go to the emergency room and get entirely free care for which they have no responsibility, particularly if they are people who have sufficient means to pay their own way.
~ Mitt Romney in March 2010 on Morning Joe

And . . . Flip-Flop 2007
When they show up at the hospital, they get care. They get free care paid for by you and me. If that's not a form of socialism, I don't know what is. So my plan did something quite different. It said, you know what? If people can afford to buy insurance ... or if they can pay their own way, then they either buy that insurance or pay their own way, but they no longer look to government to hand out free care. And that, in my opinion, is ultimate conservativism.
~ Mitt on the Glenn Beck Show, 2007

The immediate goal is to make sure there are more people on private insurance plans. I mean, people have access to health care in America. After all, you just go to an emergency room.

Mitt's surgeon general would be Theodoric of York.

His platform is like the melting Artic Ice sheets.
He doesn't know where to stand.

There is no way to revive this guy's campaign. Don't even bother with the paddles.
~ comment by abbienormal on Huff Post

Since Republicans hate government we can barter for their service - pay them in corn and chickens.

Did Bain form a new company that specializes in patient dumping?
/under the cover of darkness of course.

Go to the emergency room.
Receive treatment you cannot afford.
Lose your job because you are too sick to work, lose your home because you lost your job, lose everything because you had no insurance to pay for your healthcare costs,.....
We've seen this horror film before, but Mitt paid no attention.

Speaking of botched interviews .... Romney's campaign is now officially in an ambulance, on the way to the Emergency Room.
~ comment by DerBlaueEngel on Washington Post

Might as well redirect people to the morgue. Cut out the middle man.

No Health Insurance? No problem. Romney Says That Freeloading In The ER Is Now All Good

~ Headline on Forbes

I'll simply state the obvious... ER visits are reactive, not preventive. When I can walk into an ER and pick up blood pressure or cholesterol meds which could PREVENT that hypothetical heart attack, that's when I'll consider the ER a form a socialized health care.
~ comment by Buford on AmericaBlog

"Don't worry, peasants! There will be hospitals there to treat you while you're dying of something that could have been prevented."
~ comment by leftistmenace_1 on Daily Beast

Let me tell you what happens when the uninsured to to the emergency room. You get a bill for somewhere between $10,000 and $20,000....then when you can't pay the ridiculous amount they have charged get harassed for years by a collection agency. get two from the local hospital and another from their parent company. I know someone this has happened to. It's a sad and dangerous situation.
Romney doesn't get it......just doesn't.
~ comment by Marmee on Daily Beast

Now we have heard it from the horse mouth himself. Romney Ryan and Republican House Party want to treat the 47% like "LIVESTOCK". Take away our healthcare "OBAMACARE" for "romneyDIEcare". Wake-up PEOPLES Romney only vision $$$$$$$$$$$$$ look he came straight for our money our health we worth alot to him and his 1% BROKE = DEATH
~ comment by LawannaSauls on Daily Beast

Does this mean that on day one of his presidency, when he repeals the Obama Affordable Care Act (as he promises to do) that ER's all over the country will happily fling open their doors to everyone with a vaginal infection, the hives, an earache, the flu, mild dizziness and other every-day type medical concerns?
He comes out with a reasonable, workable health care plan in Massachusetts, but 'ER's-IN-A-BOX' is the best he can do for a whole country?
