He’s an optimist. Mitt Romney has a message for the estimated 49 million Americans who don’t have health insurance: you’re not going to die in your apartment! Romney said that when those who aren’t fortunate enough to have insurance get ill, the government doesn’t say “tough luck, you’re going to die when you have a heart attack.” Instead, Mitt says, the government, a charity, or the hospital will foot the bill. A health-care group says that 26,000 uninsured die every year.
