The Opposition to Health Care Reform

I was recently sent a “viral” email referring to comments made by Betsy McCaughey (a paid shill for medical companies) on the Fred Thompson show.  Ms. McCaughey claimed that one proposal ” would make it mandatory — absolutely require — that every five years people in Medicare have a required counseling session that will tell them how to end their life sooner.”

Politifact blows the lid off this outright lie.

Now we have unruly mobs disrupting town-hall meetings with democratic representatives.  Republicans claim these are “average, middle-class Americans who are expressing their outrage.”  Rachel Maddow investigated this claim:

First we get paid shills showing up on conservative media sites/shows spouting lies, then we get manufactured mobs practicing hooliganism at Democratic Representatives’ town-halls, effectively drowning out and/or intimidating anyone who is pro-health care reform.
