Is Romney This Stupid?

According to Mittens Romney, we do not have people who die because they don't have insurance:

“We don’t have a setting across this country where if you don’t have insurance, we just say to you, ‘Tough luck, you’re going to die when you have your heart attack,’” he said as he offered more hints as to what he would put in place of “Obamacare,” which he has pledged to repeal.
“No, you go to the hospital, you get treated, you get care, and it’s paid for, either by charity, the government or by the hospital. We don’t have people that become ill, who die in their apartment because they don’t have insurance.”
Okay, Mitt. How about you spend a couple of hours at any urban hospital emergency room some Friday night and then come back and tell us with a straight face this story again. The sad thing is that even if he did take my advice, he'd still tell the same story. It fits his narrative and the truth be damned. Facts have a liberal bias you know.

No, he isn't stupid enough to believe that. It's another one of his out-and-out lies. He wants to do to human beings what he did to various companies that Bain Capital took over. Harvest their organs and toss out the shell onto the scrap heap.

Who needs "death panels" when we can have someone like Romney at the helm?

At least 26,000 a year die from not having insurance. This doesn't mean they had heart attack and got blocked at the ER door. This means they got cancer, or some other life ender, and without insurance they never got treatment, or if couldn't buy the meds for it, the heart attack is over soon, but these people die for months before it stops.
