Mitt Romney is still working to clarify his statement, “I’m not concerned about the very poor.” On an unplanned trip to chat with reporters in the rear of his campaign jet, the former Governor of Massachusetts worked to explain his intentions of the comment in question.
“No, no, no, no, no, no, no,” Romney proclaimed. “I was referring to the fact that the very poor have a safety net. Let me give you an example here– I was watching television up front and witnessed a story about a pretty young homeless woman who came into the emergency room with a mysterious illness. During her stay at the hospital she received top-notch care from the best doctors in the building and not once was refused treatment based on ability to pay. This reassures me that our safety net is working. Thank you Doctor House.”
