View Diary: Don't be fooled by another 'Obamacare horror story' (2 comments)

  •  I've never been fooled; only pissed. (10+ / 0-)

    I have personally traced every filth-spewing Republican's horror story about the "victims" of the PPACA.

    I have never found one that was not deliberate lying filth.

    And each time, others were there before me, exposing them.

    What I cannot figure out is why they would lie in such stupid ways. Surely they cannot be such imbeciles that they think they will get away with it.

    My guess is -- they know they will be found out but in the US there are no political consequences for lying. We accept that news media is probably lying. We fully expect it and do not give it another thought.

    In most other countries, it is unconstitutional and a crime for a government official to lie to the people about policy issues that affect their lives. Likewise, a radio station that does so is immediately closed down.

    USians don't even whimper. They think they deserve a beating and deserve to suffer from the consequences of sedition.
