Mitt Romney vows hell extend health insurance to people with pre-existing medical conditions, a pledge that comes with few details and strings attached. Oct. 8 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg's Matt Dowd discusses the poll bounce for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney following last week's first presidential debate, what to look for in this week's vice presidential debate and criticism of the monthly jobs report. He speaks on Bloomberg Television's "Bloomberg Surveillance." The Republican presidential nominee says he would shield workers with coverage from being dropped if they change jobs. Romneys plan doesnt explain what it would do for many others, such as those with ailments seeking health coverage for the first time. Without specifics, he would leave it to the states to find solutions for everyone not covered under his proposal. Health-policy specialists say Romneys plan echoes such protection already in a 1996 U.S. law and doesnt show how it would help at least 36 million sick people at risk of being denied coverage.
