Romney Sparks Controversy With Health Care Remark

Mitt Romney once again sparked controversy over his views on health care in an editorial board interview with the Columbus Dispatch on Thursday. Romney said: “We don’t have a setting across this country where if you don’t have insurance, we just say to you, ‘Tough luck, you’re going to die when you have your heart attack.’” But health policy analysts noted a number of studies showing that people without health insurance do worse than the insured when they get sick and are more likely to die.
