How many Americans will die as a result of policies a Romney - Ryan administration might implement? That's a question many are pondering, and not idly. One person I know is, for the first time ever, frightened by what might happen as a result of a presidential election. Romney is widely regarded as little more than a frontman for extremists already in Washington. He almost certainly will be the president "with enough working digits to handle a pen" that Grover Norquist said is all the need to get what they want. So what will the toll be? Here's a sample of the right wing agenda Romney will implement and the death it will cause. Should Romney repeal Obamacare as he has promised, the toll will be much higher. Millions will lose access to health care and will be left to fend for themselves. While the relationship between health insurance and death is unclear, one study estimated as many as 40,000 Americans die every year because they don't have it. This is the horror we bring down on ourselves if we elect Mitt Romney.
