    Is Romney insane? Seriously? He doesn't seem to have a consistent position on anything. His inconsistent reasoning and flip-flopping positions on health care are absolutely bizarre.

    "Downplaying the need for the government to ensure that every person has health insurance, Mitt Romney on Sunday suggested that emergency room care suffices as a substitute for the uninsured."

    What's wrong with this primise?

    Well, if you can't afford health insurance, you could just borrow the money from your parents.

    I'm 65, and I haven't seen it all, but Romney is by far the most fucked up presidential candidate in my lifetime so far.

    There's no good answer for this. Obamacare(romneycare SR) isn't good either.

    Besides the fact that visiting the emergency room can cost 10 to hundreds of times more than preventative care, the cost it pushed onto the middle class and the care itself is substandard as studies prove, nothing.

    Did that help?

    Romney was against emergency room care before he was for it

    It isn't the government's job to take care of you. Time to show some personal responablity America!

    Mitt Romney is a man that earned it!

    In the land of free health care we have to pay for our ambulances in Manitoba.

    Oh and for our free health care we pay a GST (goods and services tax) on everything we buy.

    Everything. I think your Pelosi calls it a VAT.

    Go ahead fake indian. Pay 5% on everything you buy and do including your haircuts.
