Alter On ObamaCare: "If We Elect Romney, A Lot Of People Will Die"

"Repeal equals death," columnist Jonathan Alter said on MSNBC's "Ed Show" tonight. "People will die in the United States if ObamaCare is repealed. That is not an exaggeration. That is not crying fire. It's a simple fact. If you have preexisting conditions and you are thrown off of health insurance, or if you get sick after you or your husband, spouse, loses the job, you're not going to go to the doctor as soon, your cancer or disease is not going to be caught as quickly, and your odds of dying are much, much increased."

"ObamaCare will save, literally, thousands of lives," Alter declared.

"They don't need to embrace this ad and get into a big fight about whether they were calling Mitt Romney a murderer or whatever. They need to move on to a debate about the main issue, which is ObamaCare. And they can bring death into the conversation and say, 'No, we're not calling Mitt Romney a murderer, what we are saying is that if he's elected president, a lot of people will die.' Those are two slightly different, but related issues," Alter said.
