Gee, that's a difficult question to answer, while I don't know if she lies about what see had for dinner last night, there is a pattern forming.<quoted text>
...What if a dentist were to start asking such questions? Or...maybe a podiatrist? An opthalmologist? When you think about it, that article is one person's interpretation of the law in comparison to another's. You refer to her as a "known" liar.
Does that make her a liar about everything?
"an outright distortion"
"a ridiculous falsehood"
"Pants on Fire"
"an evidence-free attack on Obamacare"
"Pants on Fire"
The health care reform bill "would make it mandatory ó absolutely require ó that every five years people in Medicare have a required counseling session that will tell them how to end their life sooner."
Betsy McCaughey on Thursday, July 16th, 2009 in on the Fred Thompson radio show
For our ruling on this one, there's really no gray area here. McCaughey incorrectly states that the bill would require Medicare patients to have these counseling sessions and she is suggesting that the government is somehow trying to interfere with a very personal decision. And her claim that the sessions would "tell [seniors] how to end their life sooner" is an outright distortion. Rather, the sessions are an option for elderly patients who want to learn more about living wills, health care proxies and other forms of end-of-life planning. McCaughey isn't just wrong, she's spreading a ridiculous falsehood. That's a Pants on Fire.
Betsy McCaughey says on next doctor visit,ĎObamacare will question your sex lifeí
McCaughey says in "Obamacare will question your sex life" that you can thank the presidentís health law for questions about your sexual activity, even if your doctor finds them unnecessary.
She suggests itís part of Obamacareís move toward electronic health records. But incentives for electronic health records were part of the Recovery Act, not Obamacare. And they donít require participating doctors to ask questions about your sex life.
McCaughey frames her concern for patient privacy with an evidence-free attack on Obamacare that veers toward the ridiculous. We call it Pants on Fire.
