Pre-existing condition? Tough shit.
con-tem-plate: Mitt Romney on Leno:
“If they’re 45 years old and they show up and they say I have a heart condition and I want insurance? You can’t play the game like that.”
I know plenty of people who have pre-existing conditions. This is exactly why we need the individual mandate. The Republican spokesperson goes on and on about how this is a hard problem to solve. Well, guess what? It’s already been solved, and it called Obamacare! Obamacare is the first pass at helping real life healthcare issues just like this. Under Romney, sorry, you’re out of luck.
Is this man for real? His glib answer just came out without any thought. Cold, compassionless, heck, no intelligence either.
Jay Leno does a great job, and all it took was a simple follow-up question.
Mitt’s own wife, Anntoinette, has a pre-existing condition. But neither of them have been without health insurance (or the money to pay for the very best medical treatment) a day in their privileged, silver-spoon fed lives.
Romneybot is unable to compute a life without a lot of money. FFS, apparently Ann still has PTSD from having to “eat tuna” and sell some stock when they were in college. These two would fall apart if they had to live our lives for a couple of weeks!
