Mitt Romney: No Health Insurance? Go to the Emergency Room


[Music] [INTERVIEWER]: Does the government have a
responsibility to provide health insurance for the 50 million Americans who don’t have
it today? [MITT ROMNEY] We do provide care for people
who do not have insurance. If someone has a heart attack, they don’t
sit in the apartment and die. We picked them up in an ambulance and take
them to the hospital and give them care. Different states have different ways for providing
for that care. It is the most expensive way to do in the
emergency room [MITT ROMNEY] Again, Different states have
different ways of doing that. Some provide that care through clinics. Some provide the care through emergency rooms. [Music] [MITT ROMNEY]: It doesn’t make a lot of
sense for us to have millions and millions of people who have no health insurance. And yet can go to the emergency room and get
entirely free care, for which they have no responsibility. Particularly, if there are people who have
sufficient means to pay their own way. [Music] [MITT ROMNEY]:We picked them up in an ambulance
and take them to the hospital and give them care. [COMMENTATOR]: Any Governor knows emergency
room care is the stupidest possible way to provide care to people.
