First Lady Michelle Obama told supporters tonight at a fundraiser that if you elect Mitt Romney women will die from cancer. The Examiner reported, via Jammie Wearing Fool:
Who knew that cancer would emerge as a leitmotif of the Obama campaign? First Lady Michelle Obama is the latest to invoke cancer on the campaign trail, but she did so to tout Obamacare rather than attack Mitt Romney directly.
“But this election is also a choice about the health of our families,” Mrs. Obama said at a fundraiser this evening. “We all know these stories — the grandparents who couldn’t afford their medications; the families going broke because a child got sick; the woman dying of cancer whose insurance company wouldn’t cover her care. And let me tell you something, that’s what kept Barack going day after day.”
Moments later, she asked (without naming Romney), “Do we want these reforms to be repealed? Because there are those who do. Or do we want the people we love to have the care they need? That’s the choice we face.”
Flashback: In 2009 twenty states cut funding for mammogram screenings for low income women after a government task force made recommendations that women in their 40s should stop routinely having annual mammograms.
But, since when did facts matter to this couple?
