    The Conservative Media: GOP fear-mongering on health care reform spins out of control

    WHY do they feel the need to lie? Can someone please answer this very simple question?

    How in the hell would you know if it is a LIE? The democrats won't tell us what they will put in the bill, and when they have put it up for vote and REFUSED to allow Senators and Congressmen time to read it or to publish it for the public.

    You are defending a blank check once again. The stimulus fiasco should have woken you up to the abuse and problems with THAT approach. The liberals are so OUT of touch with what the people want that their own party is AGAINST them. It takes 218 votes to pass a bill in the house, there are 265 Democrats. It takes 51 votes to pass a bill in the Senate, there are 58 Democrats and 2 Independents that vote with the Democrats. And yet they can not get these bills passed. WHY? Not because of any Republican action. Because of their own party disagreeing with the plan, the failure to allow debate, the failure to inform the American people and the fear that it will be a shambles if they just vote for what ever Pelosi and Reid approve of.

    We know that versions have been proposed that include direct Government control with direct blocks on the ability of the current insurance companies to compete with the federal Government. We know that versions have been proposed that would FORCE all Americans to have insurance and if they did not have it to be FINED by the Government at least half to 2/3rds the cost of the Government plan. These are not made up propositions, they have been floated and have been shot down. Again NOT by republicans but by DEMOCRATS. Democrats opposed to the heavy handed tactics of Pelosi, Reid and Obama.

    There is a saying .... " Fool me once shame on YOU, fool me twice, shame on ME" We have already been fooled once by the stimulus debacle shall we just allow it to happen again with health care?

    By your same argument, how would you know if it is TRUE?

    Basically, if we can't call it a LIE, and we can't call it the TRUTH, then it is just a FABLE.

    We do know what has been proposed and shot down, we also know that we only find out the details after the Democrats force a vote with out allowing the Public to be informed and after not even letting the people in Congress voting on the bills to read it. And from that we know that the reason no bill has passed is because the procedures and desires of those bills were disasterous to the public, this country and the economy.

    Given that what the final bill will be is utterly unknown until the Senate and House conference committee on health care adjourns. In the meantime there isn't a damn thing wrong with telling this goldplated horses butts that have forgotten that they work for us rather than the other way around exactly what the hell we do not want in a health care reform bill.

    Assuming it's a misrepresentation (not doubting the veracity of your information, just being judicious) then it must be in reaction to intelligence they have that the current misrepresentations aren't hitting home. Perhaps the line that the government is going to euthanase seniors was a bit too extreme for people to believe and people have worked out they're being fed bullshit. Okay, bring in Plan B - use a misrepresentation that is more believable.
