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?

First Lady Michelle Obama told supporters last night at a fundraiser that if you elect Mitt Romney women will die from cancer or something crazy like that.


The Examiner reported:
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Moments later, she asked (without naming Romney), “Do we want these reforms to be repealed?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.”




As if no one got cancer treatment before ObamaCare????

She's absolutely right. That is the choice we face.

So before ObamaCare, people didn't get cancer treatments?

Are you SURE ABOUT THAT?

And what about Obama's own Task Force telling women they didn't need annual mammograms?

Doesn't matter when Obama's Task Force tells doctors that they don't need to do annual mammograms.

She's really saying:

"If you vote for Mitt Romney I won't be able to fly separately from my husband on the taxpayers $$ any more."

Yeah, I can see a divorce.

She's only "tolerating" him now.

Politics = brings out the mud slinging dirt as well as lies/deceit and they both are masters of it.

Why does she have to stoop so low as to say this? Her life hasn't been good enough to and for her? Oh that's right, she wants "more-more-more" for "me-me-me" as "I'm worth it"!

Race or sex are not factors.
