It looks like this week that the Romney Campaign is in dire need of ambulatory care. This constant state of denial of reality and facts leave no other choice for himself, his deeply troubled laissez faire running mate, one Paul Ryan, and his demented staff assisting him in his pitiable run for the Presidency. Perhaps with some professional consultation we can get to the root of his constant need to avoid reality including his aversion to forty seven percent of the population of the United States. Consider his quote from Sixty Minutes on Health Care: “Well, we do provide care for people who don’t have insurance, people — we — if someone has a heart attack, they don’t sit in their apartment and — and die. We — we pick them up in an ambulance, and take them to the hospital, and give them care. And different states have different ways of providing for that care.”
Wow he needs assistance from a qualified health professional consultant. Any emergency room Doctor and their staff know that this is not the solution to the health care crisis. Preventive medicine is cheaper by far. The ambulance bill alone will be in the thousands of dollars. What about the poor woman who is single and raising a child with no health care who ends up in the emergency room at three am for help. This is Romney’s health care solution?
Does he have any idea what reality is for most of the human race? The answer is a resounding no. He reminds us of this again and again. What has become of the Republican Party as of late? It seems to have become a puppet arm of the fossil fuel consortium. The delusion continues. Evolution has been called into question. This is most interesting because where do the fossil fuel enthusiasts think all the damn FOSSIL fuel came from to begin with?
Now think of truly helping the middle class. Health care and education freely available to everyone. Clean air to breath and clean lakes and streams. Give tax breaks to clean energy companies and stop subsidizing the fossil fuel consortium. Face the fact that the easy oil to drill is gone, the easy coal to mine is gone (it should be noted here that coal burning is what causes acid rain and mercury contamination of lakes and streams), fracking for natural gas is an impractical, dangerous process and any use of these fossil fuels in the production of energy causes vast amounts of carbon dioxide to enter the atmosphere and contributes to the crisis of global warming! The Republican Party has to stop lying to the people that increased use and exploration for these dirty fuel sources will solve anything except putting more money in the pockets of the fossil fuel consortium.

Well stated!! As a person in the healthcare field, I know first hand the misuse of the Emergency Department. It is for EMERGENCIES, not a free healthcare clinic!! The expense is not only a tremendous burden on the patient, but on the entire hospital organization as a whole. These expenses have to be recovered somehow. Who pays? The person who does have healthcare. It is paid for by higher costs for care, higher health insurance premiums, etc etc.
Here’s a trickle down affect that does work. When hospitals are losing money, they lay off staff. That means less people working in the ER department When hospitals lay off their staff, they become the unemployed. No work, no healthcare coverage. So those wonderful healthcare workers that provided care because of their oath are now sitting in the ER when they become ill. How long do you think a hospital can keep those doors open without getting paid!! Will the government step in and provide a supplement? According to the government running for office…NO! Where will any of us go? Why should Romney care, he is wealthy enough to hire a personal physician at his will. Can you? I sure can’t. So healthcare winds up for the elite only and then rest of us die in heaps. Maybe that is where all the fossil fuel comes from?
I had taken a course in Ethics. I read a thick textbook, heard the class discussions and came out of it saying I hadn’t learned a thing I didn’t know before about morals and what is right or wrong in human conduct.
