Mitt Romney last week: “We don’t have people that become ill, who die in their apartment because they don’t have insurance.”

What planet is this man from?

If I could make every voter in America read one article, this would be it: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/15/opinion/krugman-death-by-ideology.html. It's short. Read the featured comments, too.

According to this study, over 40000 American deaths per year can be attributed to lack of health insurance. The exact number can be questioned, but I would be amazed if it weren't in the five figures.
