    Romney makes it seem like -- no problem, we don't let you die, you can go to the ER.  The government picks up the tab.

    He's smart enough to know that the government only picks up the tab when people can't afford to pay, and those people can lose their homes and/or file bankruptcy because of their ER bills.

    But I'll bet most people think the ER is free even if you can't afford it.

    Dems need to use this campaign as a "teachable moment."

    The GOP: "You can always go to the Emergency Room."

      One of the Teabaggers was asked about this and they said you can just declare bankruptcy plus who remembers the repuke congressperson who told a woman at a town hall whose husband was on a feeding tube and couldn't afford his Ensure/Medications was told to go and beg her neighbors for money?
