Willard's "Emergency Room" Solution

We noted yesterday that sketchy shape-shifter Willard "Mr. Mo' Shambles" Romney has changed his position regarding the use of emergency rooms to provide health care to the uninsured. Now, the Obama campaign is hitting him on that nonsense.

Here's a New York Times editorial on Willard's health care "plan" for the uninsured:
"Asked about the government’s responsibility to the 50 million Americans without health insurance, Mr. Romney said they already have access to health care: in emergency rooms. That, of course, is the most expensive and least effective way of providing care, as someone who once advocated universal care has reason to know. But it also reeks of contempt for those left behind by the current insurance system, suggesting that they must suffer with illness until the point where they need an ambulance.

Mr. Romney is free to pursue this shallow, cavalier campaign for six more weeks, but he shouldn’t be surprised if voters increasingly choose not to pay attention."
