At a town hall in Bedford,New Hampshire on Monday, Mitt Romney encountered an uninsured voter who pressed him on his opposition to universal healthcare.

The uninsured voter, a woman who seemed desperate for some words of hope regarding her lack of healthcare insurance. Instead of any hint of compassion - or even an actual response to her need for healthcare - Romney brushed the woman off with a grin and what seemed to be a jab at Obamacare before he cast his gaze elsewhere.

"When you signed into law Romneycare, I was excited," the woman said. "You seemed proud to do that. And then when the country copied you, it just seemed like there was hope for people like me."

"How have you done since then?" Romney asked flippantly, talking over her.

"I don't have health care, sir, and I'm scared," she said.

“That tells you something doesn’t it?” Romney said. “Tells you something.”

Indeed.
