  •  Typical GOP response, no surprise (3+ / 0-)

    Having done legislative advocacy on health care for over a decade, this is the typical GOP response.

    They always think its appropriate to push the uninsured off to fend for themselves or to make publicly funded hospitals cover the cost.

    Keep in mind, the emergency room he's referring to likely belongs to the local city or county hospital.  Republicans wouldn't dream of making a major for profit or non-profit hospital cover uninsured people.

    As Ohio's Bill Batchelder once said to me when I explained the barriers to care for  uninsured cancer patients "Well, it sounds like the system is working the way its supposed to."

    "Mitt Romney is Dick Cheney with more charisma"
