Amidst a necessary, but life-threatening, debate on the future of health care for millions of Americans, presidential candidate Mitt Romney revealed why it’s OK that almost 50 million Americans are uninsured. Romney said in an interview with a TV broadcast news program that people who are uninsured are “care(d) for” with the help of America’s emergency room services: We do provide care for people who don’t have insurance. If someone has a heart attack, they don’t sit in their apartment and die.
