Here’s that Priorities USA ad, featuring Joe Soptic, who lost his job and his health insurance because of Bain Capital (and his wife subsequently died of cancer):
“To that point, if people had been in Massachusetts, under Governor Romney’s health care plan, they would have had health care. There are a lot of people losing their jobs and losing their health care in President Obama’s economy.” — Romney spokesperson Andrea Saul, yesterday, counterattacking a Priorities USA ad in which a laid-off steelworker blames the presumptive GOP nominee for his family losing health care.
This kind of problem is something that “Obamacare” — aka the Affordable Care Act, based on Romneycare — is trying to remedy.
Oh, what was that you said last month, Governor Romney?
Joe Soptic would have been better off in Massachusetts, back when Romney felt one way about universal health care. He feels differently now though. Like education, Mitt Romney thinks we should only get as much health care as we can afford. I kind of think a $77,000 tax deduction on a horse is non-essential. But that’s just me.
