Mitt on 60 Minutes: Uninsured can go to the Emergency Room
It seems that Mitt Romney's attitude about the poor and uninsured is "Let them eat cake."
Mitt on 60 Minutes
On the CBS News Sunday night 60 Minutes program, September 23, 2012, interviewer Scott Pelley asked Mitt Romney what he would do about the fifty million Americans who have no health insurance. How do we care for them?
Mitt responded to Pelley that we already do take care of the uninsured, implying that nothing needs to be done - that it is not a problem. He said, in effect, that the uninsured, if they have a heart attack or another sudden health crisis, can always call an ambulance and be taken to an emergency room where they will be well taken care of.
Watch the brief fifteen minute video below of Pelley's interview with both Romney and President Barack Obama.
