    DNC promises 'rain of hellfire'

    Tim Pawlenty speaks at a luncheon in July.
    The new site's opening target is Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty.

    “Help debunk the outrageous lies and misinformation about health reform,” the site says.

    DNC spokesman Hari Sevugan said: “The message to opponents of change who would lie or misrepresent the truth should be clear. We are going to respond forcefully and consistently with the facts, and you will no longer be able to peddle your lies with impunity. Through tools like 'Call 'Em Out,' you will be met with a rain of hellfire from supporters armed with the facts and you will be held to account.”

    Debunk if you can:

    1. Can't tell us to the nearest 17 MILLION how many uninsured we're talking about.

    "We've got 46-47 million people without health insurance in our country." -- BHO

    "There are now more than 30 million American citizens who cannot get coverage," -- BHO,

    2. Insists we model Medicare and points to is as a success, but wants to eliminate “the hundreds of billions of dollars in waste and fraud.” HUH? What the fuck!? How is a program with "hundreds of billions of dollars in waste and fraud" a success?

    3. Claims that tort reform alone will only save 1-2% and is therefore not worth pursuing, but "if we can successfully slow the growth of health care costs by just one-tenth of one percent each year, it will actually reduce the deficit by $4 trillion over the long term."

    So, if we enact tort reform alone we can reduce the deficit by $40 to 80 trillion!, and fully fund Soc Security, Medicare and Medicaid!
