Wait a Minute: Joe Soptic’s Wife Wasn’t Even Diagnosed With Cancer Until 2006?

Romney left Bain in 1999.
GST was shut down in 2001.
Soptic’s wife had her own health insurance through 2003.
Now, in 2006, she was diagnosed — diagnosed! — with very late-stage cancer.
She died 22 days after diagnosis.
Is the argument made that Romney owed this guy another seven years worth of insurance coverage?
And what good would it even have done? She wasn’t even diagnosed until just over three weeks before she would die.

I’m sorry, I’m very late on this one. I knew the story was bullshit, but I thought there must be some shred of truth to it.

But wait! There’s more!
…Joe Septic, the anti-Romney cancer ad steelworker, admitted in a recent interview that Bain Capital offered him a buyout before the plant closed in 2001…
…Soptic chose not to insure wife at post-GST job.
But, it’s Romney’s fault his wife died…
…What is it going to be tomorrow? Romney is actually Hitler’s Bastard Son from his secret Sperm bank? The book of Mormon is really an alien cookbook? In October will we see the Huffington Post exclusive that Mitt Romney is the actual Anti-Christ conceived at a satanic orgy in a pentagram shaped chamber hidden deep below the main Mormon Temple in Salt Lake City?
And people are actually afraid of losing to these guys?…
