“Yeah, I mean, you know…if you take these people making $20,000, $30,000 a year and offer them free healthcare, because, you know, most of them don’t have it…and if they do, it’s not good or affordable….and you give them free healthcare, like healthcare is some kind of right, well, of course they’re going to vote for you.
What? No…no I don’t have a better plan for getting these people covered. I’m just saying, you know, it’s worth $10 grand, maybe more. That’s the market. That’s just the market. They can go to the ER if they have to.
No. No, I haven’t heard that it costs society more to have uninsured people use the ER like a free clinic than it doesn’t to just cover them. It’s the market! People gotta get paid.
Brown people? Of course the free healthcare bit was huge for them. Huge. I mean, come on. And don’t even get me started on the student loan stuff. No, I don’t pay federal income tax as such.”

Jindal says Romney’s campaign narrative was too long on biography. There’s a reason for that.
