Reality Check: Common Lies About ‘Obamacare’
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — President Obama looked startled when a Congressman shouted “You lie!” after he said no illegal immigrants are covered in the new health care law.
But the Congressman was wrong.
That’s just one symbol of confusion.
It’s not true.
Liberal deceptions include this doozy: Republicans plan to kill Medicare…. and grandma, by the way.
In fact, Republicans did propose a Medicare overhaul — in 2022. Nothing changes for anyone on Medicare now.
Even the President is not immune.
He said it would be unprecedented if the Supreme Court overturns a law like this.
Not true: it’s happened many times.
He says health care is paid for. That’s not true, either.
Most of it hasn’t even gone into effect yet… and won’t until 2014.
And one distortion that won’t go away: It’s a government takeover.
That’s Reality Check.
