Exposing and Debunking 5 of the Biggest Republican Lies About “Obamacare”

There’s a lot of propaganda that comes from the right as it relates to the Affordable Care Act (aka “Obamacare”), and even I admit that at times it’s tough to know every rule that the law carries with it.

However, the blatant lies coming from Republicans since the law’s inception have been seemingly endless. So I decided a few of them needed to be debunked.

Granted, the following aren’t the worst lies — they’re just the lies I see most often from right-wing trolls on my pages Right Off A Cliff and Forward Progressives, as well as my conservative friends and family who get most of their “information” from Fox News.

So in no particular order, let’s go ahead and debunk 5 of the biggest Republican lies about Obamacare.

1) Death Panels: Who actually believes that there will be some committee of government officials sitting at a desk determining whether or not someone lives or dies? How is it that people are this stupid? You would think that this myth would have faded long ago, but sadly I still see it pop up far too often. For the record, Obamacare is not a government takeover of health care. Which leads me to…

2) Obamacare is socialized health care: Obamacare is not socialized health care. That would be a single-payer system which Republicans simply refused to support in any way. What Obamacare equates to is insurance reform. It requires that every American obtain health insurance (you know, the whole “personal responsibility thing”) and those who can’t afford it will be given subsidies (tax breaks) in order to help them afford coverage. Those who can afford insurance, but don’t make that much, will be given tax breaks as well based on their income. It’s still largely private insurance companies providing health insurance to Americans. Not a government takeover of health care.

3) The mandate is unconstitutional: Actually, according to our Supreme Court it is constitutional. In fact, the mandate is vital for any kind of insurance reform to work. Think of it like car insurance. People can’t pick and choose when they want car insurance. If they want to drive, they have to have insurance. Well, we can’t pick when we’ll get sick and need medical attention. So health insurance is a little different. If we require that all Americans be given access to treatment (the pre-existing conditions part) then it’s vital that we require all Americans to obtain health insurance. Otherwise people would only purchase insurance when they got sick, use it, and then drop it as soon as they’re well. This behavior would be catastrophic for everyone who continually kept health insurance. The whole point of insurance in the first place is to lower individual out of pocket costs by essentially paying into a pool of money. If we allow people to pick and choose when they want coverage, and allow them to drop it whenever they don’t need it, then that would skyrocket the cost of health premiums even more. While it never sounds good to say “the government mandates…” when it comes to pretty much anything, the fact of the matter is it’s vital for Obamacare (or any health insurance reform) to work. Otherwise, everyone who pays responsibly would then be paying the price.

4) Obamacare is a radical leftist idea: Actually, that’s false. An individual mandate was originally a Republican idea in the 1990′s, as a counter to the push during the Clinton administration for true universal health care. They proposed essentially what Obamacare is—health insurance reform. It’s also a law that was passed in Massachusetts by then governor, and former GOP presidential candidate, Mitt Romney. In fact, Obamacare so closely resembles Romney’s health care plan that Republican opponents to Romney during the primaries referred to his health care law as “Romneycare.”

CONtinued:

5) Obamacare is so bad, Obama gave Congress an exemption from it: Again, that’s false. This has been a talking point Ted Cruz has often used–and it’s simply not true. It’s also a lie that Politifact rated 100 percent “false.” In fact, there was an amendment added to the law (by a Republican) before the bill became law that specifically prohibits members of Congress from being exempt from the law.

So there you have it, 5 of the biggest Republican lies about Obamacare exposed. Sadly, I don’t expect many conservatives to change their opinion about the law just from pointing these out. Facts rarely make an impact.

But still, I would encourage everyone who reads this to share it often, especially with conservatives. Because if nothing else, it’s always funny to confront Republicans with a few facts and watch them try to dispute them with their spoon-fed right-wing talking points that often just don’t make any sense.

Stomp those icons sissy boy.......read these true quotes from some sensible CONS..

15 Snarky Republican Responses to Tea Party Ted’s Government Shutdown Plan

1.“My sound bite is to say he’s a fraud…[his tactics are] just a form of governmental terrorism.”– Peter King (R-NY)

2.”I think it’s the dumbest idea I’ve ever heard of.”- Richard Burr (R-NC)

3.“I don’t think you ought to try to blackmail the administration on a fight that they won politically in the House, the Senate, and the Supreme Court by threatening to shut down the government.”- Tom Cole (R-OK)

4.“Some of my Republican colleagues… would like to set up another one of these shutdown-the-government threats. And most Americans are really tired of those kinds of shenanigans here in Washington.”– John McCain (R-AZ)

5.”I didn’t go to Harvard or Princeton, but I can count — the defunding box canyon is a tactic that will fail and weaken our position.”- Bob Corker (R-TN)

6.“For us to say you’ve got to repeal Obamacare in order [for Republicans to negotiate with the Democrats]… that’s a suicide note.”– John McCain (R-AZ)

7.”Wendy Davis has more balls than Ted Cruz.”– Anonymous House Leadership Aide

8.“Thank God [Ted Cruz] wasn’t there fighting at the Alamo… Wave white flag and surrender.”- Sean Duffy (R-WI)

9.“He’s an amateur… Nancy Pelosi is more well-liked around here.”– Anonymous House Aide
10.“It’s foolish [not to fund the government].”- Richard Shelby (R-Ala.)

11.“I am one of those who says, let’s not shut down the government just because you don’t get everything you want.”– Mark Kirk (R-IL)

12.“I know that some people are discussing filibusters, but I actually think we’re at the point now where we can’t shut down the government. It’s like burning down the house to get rid of the mice or rats.”– John Cornyn (R-TX)

13.“I think it is a huge mistake to link the defunding of Obamacare to a government shutdown. We have an obligation to govern in Washington, and it would create chaos if government were to shut down.” Susan Collins (R-ME)

14.“We were elected to govern – you don’t govern by shutting down the government.”- Jim Risch (R-ID)

15.”It’s not an achievable strategy. It’s creating the false impression that you can do something when you can’t. And it’s dishonest.”- Tom Coburn (R-OK)

Finally, if I hear anyone call what Senator Cruz did the other day a,“filibuster of Obamacare“ again, I’m gonna bug out. You can’t filibuster a bill after it’s passed into law. What Cruz did was a clown show, not a filibuster. Want to see a filibuster?? Google Wendy Davis.

I didn't use the term 'filibuster'. I also didn't read your entire post. I did pick the term 'teabagging' out though and find that comical. Teabagging is a homosexual act (typically) and homosexuals (typically) vote Democrat LOL. You're kinda dissing your fellow party members. What religious rights have Conservatives tried to take away? What civil rights? You are aware that Democrats fought against the Civil Rights acts that Republicans brought up in the 50s and 60s , right? I can follow and argue with logical arguments. Your rants, however, are not logical.

Let's get to the meat of things. You don't like Conservatives because: they expect you to work for your own food and housing, feed your own children (assuming you haven't aborted them), seek to protect unborn children, they don't condone state-sanctioned homosexuality, don't condone two male or female perverts adopting children, don't want the federal government taxing working people so that nonworking people can have free medical care and etc, etc etc.

Lies, what republiCONS do best, like these repuke posters do best..

Fact: The Majority of Americans do NOT Support Defunding “Obamacare”

The one thing that baffles me the most about Republicans as it relates to the Affordable Care Act (aka “Obamacare”) is their persistent lies.

From the law’s inception, Republicans have spent countless hours and unheard of amounts of money on smear campaigns against the law. You would think this over the top attack on the law would prompt some conservative voters to stop and think to themselves,“This seems a little excessive, I might want to question their motives.”

Especially the lying. Then again most conservative voters never question what they’re told by the right-wing media, so they really don’t know that they’re being blatantly lied to.

Whenever I’m faced with an anti-Obamacare conservative (which is pretty much all of them) I simply remind them that almost every single thing they “know” about the law is a lie, and nearly every comment someone from their party makes about the law is also a lie. I always like to ask them,“If the truth about the law is so terrible, why is there a need to lie? Shouldn’t the simple truth be enough?”

Take for example Florida Senator Marco Rubio’s recent claim that the majority of Americans support defunding Obamacare. A statement the fact-checking site Politifact ruled as “Mostly False.”
Of course, as Politifact noted in their decision, a clarification from Rubio was never received.
What Politifact did find is that the majority of Americans do not support defunding Obamacare. In fact, 57 percent oppose cutting funding while only 36 percent approve. Then if you factor in the situation of the government being shutdown to defund Obamacare, the numbers move even more favorably toward funding and away from defunding. When asked if they would support defunding of Obamacare by way of a government shutdown or default on our debt, only 19 percent of those who responded supported doing either.

So where exactly did Rubio come up with his false claims? Apparently he pulled his numbers from the “ultra reliable and absolutely not bias” Heritage Action poll—the polling arm of the Heritage foundation. And I’m sure in no way did they shape the wording of the poll or their “random sample” to benefit conservative talking points. But just for clarification on the demographics, Politifact did find out that their poll was done in 10 House districts, 6 of which are Republican controlled.

This reminds me of the “credible polls” I saw during last year’s presidential election by these conservative groups that showed Romney headed for a victory. Which of course didn’t happen, and it wasn’t even close to happening.

But Rubio’s distortion of the truth, and use of a completely bias poll for his claim, only goes to show yet another example of the right-wing fear mongering against the Affordable Care Act that’s almost entirely based on lies.

Which continues to prompt the question every liberal needs to ask every conservative —“If the truth about Obamacare is so bad, why do your elected officials keep lying about it?”

New Video Of Alison Lundergan Grimes Will Likely Kill Her Senate Chances, Depending On How Dumb Everyone Wants To Be

In previous dispatches on the Kentucky Senate race, I've noted that the many achievements of GOP Sen. Mitch McConnell's supporters include things like reading a book that Ashley Judd wrote, and noticing that Democratic contender Alison Lundergan Grimes' last name rhymes with stuff, and talking loud enough for the country's most hapless super PAC to overhear them at a closed door meeting. Chris Cillizza says the "most important thing" we've learned about McConnell's campaign is that they have a "lack of good opposition research on Grimes." But they do manage to spell Mitch McConnell's name right most of the time, so they have that going for them.

Well, that's all about to change. Apparently Kentucky College Republicans have shot a SHOCK VIDEO OMGZ of Grimes that had McConnell allies straight up jumping OFF. Buzzfeed's Andrew Kaczynski drolly notes: "Allies of her opponent, Mitch McConnell, who sent the video to a BuzzFeed reporter were very excited about it." Go read Kaczynski's piece and see for yourself. See how it excites you.

Wow, right? This video of Grimes being picked up by her husband at the airport is definitely a game-changer. Now, we just have to figure out why that is. Is it strange to be picked up at the airport by somebody? No. Only unloveable people don't have someone who will come get them at the airport. Is it the fact that she's riding around in a gas-guzzling SUV? No, this is Kentucky, and Grimes isn't really thought of as an environmentalist anyway. So what is it? The summary provided on the YouTube clip provides a clue:

Apparently Alison Lundergan Grimes, Kentucky's Secretary of State who is less than half way through her first term in her first public office, thinks she's so important that she needs to ride around town in the back seat of a black suburban...driven by personal chauffeur, her husband.

Oh, okay. This is apparently because Grimes got in the back seat of the SUV, instead of the passenger seat. Admittedly, that's a bit outside the norm. And I gather that the lesson we are supposed to extract is that Grimes is some sort of fancy-pants elitist person.

Ahh, you know what? Team McConnell really needs this one, so I'll say, "Nailed her!" Check your privilege, woman with a husband who loves her!

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/09/25/alis...

Guess she isn't as easy to trash as Ashley. Desperate CONS, just too funny.
