    Are there no depths to which the GOP will not sink?<my comment

    Daily Kos: California GOP creates fake health care website to discourage constituents from obtaining insurance

    California Republicans are desperate and shameless. In the past two weeks, GOP Assembly members have sent mailings out on what appears to be the state's dime to their constituents about health insurance. Only, they don't direct those people to CoveredCA.com to sign up. Instead, they send them to their own astroturf version with the url CoveringHealthCareCA.com.
    On their version, there are links to negative articles and twisted messages intended to sour people on signing up for health insurance before they ever land at the official health exchange site.

    This is criminal activity by the leges: fraudulent posting to divert legitimate government activity.

    there is no proof at all that any gop member in CA was involved in this. the article is completely without a single source or cite. it is pure fiction and of course the liberals just soak it up....look at the supposed republican jakestarkey, he IMMEDIATELY accepts it as true, despite coming from the daily kos.

    and really expects people to believe he is a republican...:lol:

    [do you know Texas has the most citizens of all the 50 states without health insurance?]

    But, I digress. You OKTexass have no evidence a lie was committed, and the evidence suggests no lie was committed. That makes your allegation a lie and you a liar. Sadly, to convict you of a lie one must prove intent and most would agree you're too damn dumb to plan ahead. I'd bet you shit your pants at least thrice a week.

    The tip of the coming iceberg.

    My bet is we will be seeing a lot more of this.

    Then there are the denial of service attacks -

    Republicans will do whatever they can to keep Americans from getting affordable health care.

    They're scum.

    And, they're suicidal.

    We know that you are not a Republican, or if you are again, you have changed your mind again. We know that if the GOP leges did such a thing, then it was criminal activity. Do you disagree? Can you prove this is not a black flag operation?
