    It's become obvious that the conservatives have won the battle, though not the war. The lies persist, the same ones that were shouted out at last summer's town hall meetings, summarized here:

    Twenty-six Lies About H.R. 3200 | FactCheck.org

    And this latest one: An outrageous statement by Dick Armey on CNN that "Christian Scientists who do not sign up for Medicare will lose their Social Security Benefits."

    I have searched the Christian Science website, the Christian Science Monitor's website, and even Dick Armey's Freedomworks website; the Social Security Administration website, and the Department of Health and Human Services website, and can find nothing, nada, zip referring to any such thing. There isn't a single reference, nor even a single blogger's voice of concern that this has or would ever happen. Why? Because it would mean amending both the Social Security Act and the Medicare Act to exclude a religious body. It's just more fearmongering, which is typical of maniacs like Armey for which outright lying is as natural as taking a shit.

    Transcript excerpt from CNN.com - Transcripts, 3/16/10, John Roberts and Dick Armey:
    It's simply time to concede defeat. The bill has become such an enormous mishmash by trying to appease every special interest, including full explanations therein refuting the bogus claims by the right, that it simply isn't worth any more effort.

    [Copies of this have been e-mailed to my respective legislators.]

    Dick Armey is a fucktard. Shame on the Dems for not being more convincing than fucktards.

    I agree with this post more than I think I've ever agreed with a post on this message board.

    It's just a shame that I can't rep you more than once for it.

    I would have believed the democrats had my best interest at heart, yep, except for the fact that they voted down the amendment that said they should put themselves under the same health care reform bill they passed for us. Yup iffen it ain't good enough for them then I don't want it.

    I think it's dead.. the only thing more dead are those who vote for it. Assuming they do the legal thing and actually vote...

    I don't get why these folks are doing it... a solid majority of the American people DON'T want it... it is suicide. I guess hard core Marxism takes the day.

    Since I'm sure you're an expert on Marxism, why don't you explain what the tenets of Marxism are, and how the healthcare plan fits them?

    Democrats don't kill themselves. They kill the unborn, very old and sick, my appetite and our liberties.
