Romney: Healthcare called 'choice'
A Mitt Romney administration overhaul of President Barack Obama's health-care law would provide those without insurance who have a pre-existing condition the opportunity to gain coverage, the Republican presidential nominee told The Dispatch yesterday. Romney, in a meeting with The Dispatch's editorial board, said those who currently don't carry insurance would have a chance to make a "choice" to be covered without fear of being denied. But he didn't specify how long Americans would have to make that choice, or what would happen to those who chose not to be covered and later fell sick.
