Harry Reid has a message for those five million + people who lost their healthcare plans after Obama promised them they could keep them. He wants them to know that their stories of skyrocketing premiums, loss of doctors, loss of medication coverage, fatalities due to delays etc – are all a big Koch brothers lie.
This is Dingy Harry at his absolute dingiest:
“Despite all that good news, (?!) there’s plenty of horror stories being told. All of them are untrue, but they’re being told all over America,” said Reid.“The leukemia patient whose insurance policy was canceled [and] could die without her medication, Mr. President, that’s an ad being paid for by two billionaire brothers. It’s absolutely false. Or the woman whose insurance policy went up $700 a month–ads paid for around America by the multibillionaire Koch brothers, and the ad is false.”
“We heard about the evils of Obamacare, about the lives it’s ruining in Republicans’ stump speeches and in ads paid for by oil magnates, the Koch brothers. But in those tales, turned out to be just that: tales, stories made up from whole cloth, lies distorted by the Republicans to grab headlines or make political advertisements.”
(It’s worth noting that some of these alleged Koch bro’s “lies” can be found in such right wing rags as the Washington Post and the New York Times.)
I’m guessing Reid’s source for his allegation that millions of Americans are lying about their ObamaCare woes is the same guy who told him Mitt Romney hadn’t paid his taxes in ten years. And possibly the same fool who told him that the Koch brothers were “oil magnates.”
