He's so out of touch that he doesn't realize that medical expenses are the leading cause of bankruptcy in the US today. Does he think that the state will just pick up the expenses for the uninsured who walk into a hospital? Does he realize that a person has to be dirt poor with nothing before they can get Medicaid, if at all today?
Most leave the hospital with enormous bills that they'll never be able to pay, so it leaves the hospitals to eat these costs. This reminds me of a customer at work who didn't really believe in health care for all until, at age 50, he developed kidney stones. After a few hours at the ER and some tests and medications, the bill was $13,000. He couldn't believe it as his job is low wage, but that's what it takes for some Repubs to wake up. Non-payment of medical expenses can damage credit and buying power for years.

Another Romney Bot moment.

Just another flip flop etch-a-sketch moment for Mitt Romney. Maybe it is just his dry sense of humor.
