Mitt Romney: In touch as he ever was with the 47 percent

By Richard K. Barry

Well, Mitt Romney is at it again, proving how in-touch he is with the little guy. This time he told The Columbus Dispatch that people without health insurance don't have to worry about dying as a result. I guess what Romney meant is that no one he cares about has ever met such a ghastly fate. Isn't that right, lovey?

In fact, as Political Wire notes, "Reuters reported earlier in the year that more than 26,000 working-age adults die prematurely in the United States each year because they lack health insurance."

Do we have to make the obvious point that these 26,000 individuals are a part of the 47 percent about whom Romney is so unconcerned. Obvious or not, it is the point.
