More Details Emerge About Ad that Ties Romney to Woman’s Death



Text  



The Wall Street Journal has more details on the health-insurance situation of the man (Joe Soptic) in the Priorities USA ad that ties Mitt Romney to a woman’s death:

Mr. Soptic said that after he lost his job, he found work as a school custodian about six months later and had the option to put her on his insurance plan. But he opted not to, he said, because he could not afford the more than $350 monthly premium on the $25,000 salary he was making, on top of paying his mortgage and a daughter’s college tuition. Ilyona Soptic was diagnosed with cancer in 2006 and died that year.
