After an eruption on Twitter and other social media, Reid returned to the floor to amend his statement: “I can’t say that every one of the Koch brothers’ ads are a lie, but I’ll say this: Mr. President, the vast, vast majority of them are.”
The Fact Checker
But only one of the Obamacare ads vetted by the Fact Checker or PolitiFact achieved such ratings, though all had various problems and statements that went too far. Meanwhile, our colleague Greg Sargent has noted that two recent AFP ads, released after controversial Boonstra ad, appeared to go out of their way not to make statements that could be called into question.
dont miss the fact that he came out and said they are liars...will this start more coming out and saying..that obamacare critics and stories are liars? others will then jump on that band wagon..devoid of facts and just scream LIAR!!! blah blah blah..ii aam nooot liistening tooo yooou...this is what politics has become.....time to throw out the bath water and get a new tub...
"Despite all that good news,” Reid said on the Senate floor Wednesday, “there's plenty of horror stories being told. All of them are untrue, but they're being told all over America.” Reid
specifically referred to an ad from Americans for Prosperity featuring the case of Julie Boonstra, a leukemia patient whose new plan disrupted her ability to budget for medications.
Reid blamed the brothers who own Koch
Industries and who are major contributors to AFP.
He dismissed Boonstra and apparently every other horror story as just “stories made up from whole cloth, lies distorted by the Republicans to grab headlines or make political advertisements.
oh Harry Reid....yah that'll change my mind...lol that is too funny. Harry and his fellow DSA members would say pretty much anything to defend their socialist healthcare plan.
but consider what a judge recently showed about aspects of Obamacare law... that all doctors will be paid the same regardless of their expertise or area of concentration, and the govt will have access to your bank account and will be able to take money out of it at will.
Does anybody really accept that as a good thing? If so, why?
