Romney: Uninsured can seek care in ER
Mitt Romney suggested Sunday that Americans who lack insurance can find the care they need in emergency rooms—a position that contradicts the rationale behind his Massachusetts healthcare law. In an interview on CBS, the former governor was asked whether the government should provide healthcare for the uninsured. The GOP presidential nominee replied by saying that "we do provide care for people who don't have insurance"—emergency care. "If someone has a heart attack," Romney said, "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."
