Mitt Romney Talking Healthcare...."People can get Insurance when they are Well".

Must Hear Interview with Jay Leno....really disgusting. Do Listen to the part about people over 45 and with pre-existing condition, listen closely.....

( Think Progress posted the Transcript)
ROMNEY: People with pre-existing conditions, as long as they have been insured before, they are going to be able to continue to have insurance.
LENO: Suppose they haven’t been insured before?
ROMNEY: Well, if they are 45 years old and they show up and say I want insurance because I have heart disease, it’s like, ‘Hey guys. We can’t play the game like that. You’ve got to get insurance when you are well and then if you get ill, you are going to be covered. [...]
We’ll look at a circumstance where someone is ill and hasn’t been insured so far, but people who have the chance to be insured –- if you are working in the auto business for instance, the companies carry insurance, they insure their employees, you look at the circumstances that exist –- but people who have done their best to get insured are going to be able to be covered. But you don’t want everyone saying, ‘I am going to sit back until I get sick and then go buy insurance.’ That doesn’t make sense. But you get defined rules and get people in who are playing by the rules.

by the constipated look on his face, Romney doesn't make sense even to himself. he acts like people don't have health insurance because they don't want to, not because of cost or pre-existing conditions. well, he & his free-loading wealthy friends can afford to self-insure, so ya'know, screw the rest of us.
