In case you missed Romney's 'they can always go to emergency rooms argument,' here's Steve Benen:
Romney sticks to ridiculous emergency-room argument, by Steve Benen: Just three weeks ago, CBS's Scott Pelley asked Mitt Romney, "Does the government have a responsibility to provide health care to the 50 million Americans who don't have it today?" The Republican didn't answer the question directly, but instead suggested there's no cause for alarm -- the uninsured can rely on emergency rooms.
Sigh. It's disconcerting to see Romney stick to such a ridiculous position, but my greater fear is that the Republican candidate actually believes what he's saying. ...[W]e know exactly why he keeps talking like this: under his approach, the number of Americans without health insurance will soar. ...
Romney's argument isn't a responsible approach to American health care in the 21st century; Romney's argument is ridiculous.
