He sure does.
And not in a single payer, socialized medicine kind of way.
No, he wants you to pay for the uninsured through higher taxes and reduced access to, and quality of care in, hospitals in your area.
How does he propose this?
“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 added in the interview. “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.”
This is a doubling down on an his earlier comment in a 60 Minutes interview:
Romney: Well, we do provide care for people who don’t have insurance, people — we– if someone has a heart attack, they don’t sit in their apartment and die. We pick them up in an ambulance, and take them to the hospital, and give them care.And different states have different ways of providing for that care.
PELLEY: That’s the most expensive way to do it…In an emergency room.
ROMNEY: Different, again, different states have different ways of doing that. Some provide that care through clinics. Some provide the care through emergency rooms.
So, there you go.
Romney’s health care plan is to make everyone, even the insured, pay for the uninsured.
Higher taxes, higher healthcare costs, and fewer hospitals.
That’s the Romney plan.
