Romney's view of health care

I just want to offer counterpoint to Mitt Romney's ludicrous suggestion that uninsured people can get adequate healthcare in the emergency room: Primary care does not happen at the ER. Chemo and radiation for cancer patients does not happen in the ER. Pap smears, mammograms, and prostate exams do not happen in the ER. Teenagers don't get birth control in the ER. I sure hope Mr Romney is planning to visit the ER the next time he needs a check up. Something tells me he must have never been in one. #outof touch
