Romney: Oh, sure. Look, it doesn't make a lot of sense for us to have millions and millions of people who have no health insurance and yet who can go to the emergency room and get entirely free care for which they have no responsibility, particularly if they are people who have sufficient means to pay their own way.
Free emergency room care? Well, then I guess we don't really need health insurance anymore if that's the case! Take that insurance companies!

Aside from that, there's still the end of Romney's argument that we need to dissect. It sounds like he's saying that people who are uninsured can get free care at the ER, no bill and no worries. However, if these uninsured people have sufficient means to pay their own way, then they have an even greater chance to get... umm... free care?
