Let’s ignore the fact that Mitt Romney is politicizing his wife’s illness, and that MS is quite a bit easier when you have a team of housekeepers, the money to pay for healthcare, and multiple dressage horses.
The bottom line is: people with MS would be worse off with Mitt Romney, because he would repeal the healthcare act.
My cousin has MS. She and her family can’t really afford the healthcare that she needs to get treated. In order to qualify for assistance with her health care, she had to cut down her hours drastically at the place she works. She was diagnosed a few months ago. Her first visit to a specialist will be next month. (because she couldn’t afford it before, and there is a waiting list because the need is so great) In the meantime, she falls a lot, can barely write because she doesn’t have good control in her dominant hand, and we worry about her in her house, because she has stairs, and her “spells” can come without warning.
Mittens can kiss my ass. He doesn’t give a fuck about the poor, or those of us who can’t afford basic healthcare. I’m sorry his wife has MS, I wouldn’t wish it on anyone, but she also has the benefits that wealth brings. Maids, nannies, the ability to pay someone to keep the house clean. My cousin has none of those. And she has a daughter under the age of 12 who has to watch her mom suffer while she waits to be treated for the same disease Mrs. Romney has. So forgive me if I’m not all that sympathetic to her.
