Camp Obama Busted Lying About Soptic Cancer Tale It Used Itself In May
First dirty, lying potential pederast Harry Reid on taxes, now Team Obama itself on the Soptic story. Man, the Democrat leadership must be pretty bad liars. Even the media has been forced to expose them and call them on it! It's like when Obama lied and said ObamaCare wasn't a tax. There is no end to the lies America has been told under Obama. And we get to spend the Fall exposing them. Good times!
But there's a problem. As Politico first reported, Soptic told essentially the same story in a May 14, 2012, conference call hosted by the Obama campaign. Here's what he said then, according to a partial recording of the call passed along by a Republican official:
After we lost our jobs, we found out that we were going to lose our health insurance, and that our pensions hadn't been funded like Bain promised they would be. I was lucky to find another job as a custodian in a local school district. They gave me some health insurance, but I couldn't afford to buy it for my wife. A little while later she was diagnosed with lung cancer. I had to put her in a county hospital because she didn't have health care, and when the cancer took her away, all I got was an enormous bill. That put a lot of stress on me: I thought I'd be paying it off until I died myself. That probably wouldn't have happened if Bain kept its promise and I was allowed to keep our health insurance.
