Mitt Romney tells Jay Leno If you were Wealthy, you'd be Healthy [updated]

Via Crooks and Liars here is video of Mitt Romney recalling "one of the most humorous" things he could remember was when his Elitist father fired American auto workers.

Oh, Mitt! Like Father, Like Son!

With the recent revelation that Mitt Romney's garage will have an elevator for his cars, The Vulture swooped down to make an appearance on the Jay Leno Tonight Show (Leno famously loves and collects cars.)

But, it wouldn't be a Mitt Romney appearance with out the Out-of-Touch Quarter Billionaire taking a chance to reveal just how disconnected he is from 99.9% of Americans.

Vulture Mitt has the smooth misunderstanding of Health Insurance that comes from being born a child of privilege and riches never having to worry if he or his family members got sick, injured, had their job outsourced by Bain Capital, lost their coverage or had their foot run over by one of the many illegals mowing Mitt Romney's palatial estate.
“It seems to me like children and people with preexisting conditions should be covered,” Leno noted.

“People with preexisting conditions — as long as they’ve been insured before, they’re going to continue to have insurance,” Romney explained.

“Suppose they were never insured?” Leno asked.

“Well, if they’re 45 years old, and they show up, and they say, I want insurance, because I’ve got a heart disease, it’s like, `Hey guys, we can’t play the game like that. You’ve got to get insurance when you’re well, and if you get ill, then you’re going to be covered,’” Romney replied.

“I know guys that work in the auto industry and they’re just not covered because they work in brake dust,” Leno pressed. “And then they get to be 30, 35, and were never able to get insurance before. Now they have it. That seems like a good thing.”
It is a good thing. Which is why Mitt and the Republican Party can't stand it. Republicans do not want the government doing "good things" because then people we see that government can in fact be a positive force. But, not to Mitt. If you don't have heath insurance and want it now? Too bad we Rich people play "a game" with your life.

Additionally, Paul Ryan re-released his Path to Penury, which guarantees to take 4 Trillion from the poor, sick and old and give it to the 1%.

The Republican Party is wholly invested in returning the United States to the Gilded Age and the Obscene Wealth concentration in the hands of the 1%.

Because, to conservatives the rise of individualism and the emancipation of minorities, women, homosexuals and all those oppressed by the Right-Wingers represents the Destruction of America.

What Obamacare actually represents, flawed as it is, is potential liberation from control by the 1%, the ability to have reasonably affordable care without being bankrupted or being denied coverage because you had a pre-existing heart condition and don't have the illicit war profiteer wealth to buy a new one like Dick Cheney.

Thanks to Reagan, Bush and the Right-Wing free market freaks we've turned our economy over to rampant gamblers and speculators.

And while they brought down the housing industry and used legerdermain to create trillions of false paper shuffling wealth on Wall Street, Oil speculators have run the price of barrel of oil to squeeze millions of dollars from Americans.

They've down remarkably well for the 1% who hold the cards and know the game is rigged and are crushing the 99%.

But, with their cries of any regulation of our crooked gambling scheme is socialism they continue to get the right-wing dupes to support them.
