That the ELECTED might never form to themselves an interest
    separate from the ELECTORS, prudence will point out the
    propriety of having elections often.

Average working women vs Ann Romney: ‘getting your ass out the door at 7am when it’s cold’
Money can’t buy health or happiness, but it can at least buy medical care and some measure of comfort for the pain and suffering. And at a certain level of wealth, naturally you’re going to get the best medical care that money can buy.
So I have difficulty understanding how Ann Romney — a breast cancer survivor and diagnosed with MS — could support her husband’s position to ‘get rid of’ Planned Parenthood clinics and do away with Obamacare, especially with its provision that insurance companies can’t reject women with pre-existing conditions, like breast cancer or Multiple Sclerosis. There are American women with little or no means who utilized PP for early breast cancer screening. There are women (and men, and children) who can’t get insured or can’t afford the premiums because of pre-existing conditions. I wonder where is Ann’s empathy for other people, who aren’t married to a vastly wealthy man, but who suffer from health issues just as serious as her own.
And THAT’S another reason why Ann Romney as no idea (nor will she ever) aboutthe concerns of average working women. More importantly, that’s why her husband is completely clueless if Ann and her “ladies who lunch”crew are going to be Mitt’s standard for American women and what he knows about them in general.

IMPORTANT: Romney’s NO Healthcare Policy extends beyond the Republican War on Women — it applies to men and children, too.
