    Wow. The woman (the wife) in question had her own insurance even after this man was laid off at Bain.

    It's a complete and utter lie.

    Whoopsie. Here's the link.

    Fact check: Woman in pro-Obama death ad had health insurance



    from the article:

    CNN's Brianna Keilar and Wolf Blitzer did some fact checking and found that the woman in the ad had insurance after her husband, Joe Soptic, lost his job at GST Steel when it closed in 2001 - two years after Romney left Bain. That fact was left out of the pro-Obama ad.

    Keilar said Tuesday that Soptic's wife had insurance until 2002 or 2003 when an injury forced her to leave her job.

    In other words, the Obama PAC not only lied in the ad, making it appear that Romney himself was responsible for the woman's death, but it failed to provide all of the facts.


    Man what scumbuckets. I have no doubt they knew the truth but wanted to smear Romney anyway.
