    Mitt Romney. The Most Vile Lie of All.
    by LaFeminista

    This is not a mere pants on fire lie.

    “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,’  ” he said as he offered more hints as to what he would put in place of “Obamacare,” which he has pledged to repeal.

    “No, you go to the hospital, you get treated, you get care, and it’s paid for, either by charity, the government or by the hospital. We don’t have people that become ill, who die in their apartment because they don’t have insurance.”

    This is as heartless and disgusting a lie as is possible

    From a Harvard study

    The lack of health insurance is associated with as many as 44789 deaths per year in the United States

    Or more simply put 1000 deaths for every one million uninsured each year.

    So every year we refuse to accept the concept of universal health care, as every other civilized country has applied, this unnecessary death toll mounts. The right scream about the right to life and pro-life, yet this simple idea eludes them.

    When you talk about repealing Obamacare in its entirety.

    When you talk about eliminating planned parenthood.

    You are condemning people to death.

    You are condemning people to needless pain and misery.

    You are creating millions of grieving relatives.

    You are condemning people to economic oblivion.

    This goes beyond mere political "untruth" and enters into the world of criminal negligence.

    The reality is people are dying every day because the most expensive health care system in the world does not work. This health care system bleeds the economy dry and it destroys lives.

    It is time that the politics of division ended and the reality of this nightmare laid bare. It is time for a health care system that serves all Americans.

    So #$%$ Mitt Romney and your disgusting lies.

    5:01 AM PT: H/T to this addition in the comments

    It's not only his most vile lie- (2+ / 0-)

    it's also his most irresponsible. He told a national audience that if they use the ER for medical care, they won't have to pay for it. Too many people already believe that, and are shocked when the bills and collection notices arrive.

    Spreading that lie is a great way to put even more people on the path to bankruptcy.
