Harry Reid Denies All Obamacare 'Horror Stories'; 'All Are Untrue'
The Weekly Standard ^ | 02/26/14 | Daniel Halper

Posted on 02/26/2014 12:03:35 PM PST by MissesBush

"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.

"Mr. President, these two brothers are trying to buy America. They not only funnel money through their Americans for Prosperity, they funnel money into all kinds of organizations to do the same thing that they're doing. They're trying to buy America. I don't believe america is for sale. We'll see, Mr. President."

It all boils down to who you believe more, The Koch Brothers, who actually produce jobs, goods and services America needs?

Or Harry Reid, who couldn't get laid in a whorehouse with a fistful of dollars?

Considering that Reid lies only a little less than BO, my money is on the Koch Brothers.

Perhaps both, but name calling and casting aspersions on the messenger are tactics of the left.

My question is: Is he correct about the two ads? If not, we can overcome his rhetoric with facts. If they are, I'm certain there are hundreds of other examples that are verifiable.

It’s OK to use the “tactics” of the lefties, no? In a war, all things are acceptable. I believe harry dimwit reid is a criminal loser who is most likely somewhat senile and deranged.

This is standard operating procedure for people who believed in a false messiah and are seeing the disaster they have created.

Some are in denial (that's what we are seeing with Harry), some deflect ("look, squirrel"), and some accept. Among those who accept, some accept responsibility and reenter the world of the sane, but most blame the truth on others, for example, "Obamacare would have worked were it not for those recalcitrant conservatives."

I’ll bet all of his information came from the same Republican who told him Mitt Romney hadn’t paid his taxes for ten years.
Harry Reid is pure evil. The Democrat party is overrun with evil people.

Well, you lying asshole, here’s one horror story that I know to be real, because it is mine:

Before Obamacare, I had a policy that cost me about $900/month for the family, with a $1500/person deductible, $4000 for the family. We had an almost unlimited number of docs to choose from.

Then came Obamacare...and my policy got cancelled.

Now my new policy costs me $835/month, has a $6000 deductible PER PERSON and a $12700 family deductible. I have far less choice in docs and hospitals, and far less is covered. Oh, but at least I’m now covered for maternity care, and my wife for prostate cancer - I’m soooooo relieved...you flaming asshole!

Thanks for NOTHING, you lying sack of schit! If not for you, I’d be way better off - as would millions.

I really believe he has to be deranged making comments like this. Those ads are NOT false, but using the common Democratic tactic of picking a boogeyman, in this case the Koch Bros, and then calling something that’s true a lie knowing it will never be disputed by the left wing media, Reid is trying to smear the credibility of the people in these ads knowing he’ll NEVER have to back up his claim of these ads being false. Notice he provides no details about what specifically is dishonest about them? No, it’s just enough to create the impression in the minds of the gullable that they’re false and that will end any doubt about Obamacare among the suckers who don’t think for themselves. Yet there are Obama supporters like Jessica Sanford, who supported Obamacare, who is on record saying Obamacare was a raw deal for her. Why would she lie? Or Edie Littlefield Sundie a stage 4 gall bladder survivor, and Obama supporter, who went on CNN and the Wall Street Journal to document the raw deal she got with Obamacare. That a man such as this would stand there on the Senate floor and deny these realities and accuse them all of lying makes him an evil man-—or mentally ill. This isn’t name calling. It’s empirical truth.

They’ll beat you every time if you don’t know what they’re doing, and only personalize your response. The man is not deranged, and he knows what he’s doing. This is an old propaganda technique, a person of authority is telling you, who is seeing or experiencing a problem, that you are an isolated case!

If we had an effective opposition party, these types of statements, coupled with the testimony of the victims of ObamaCare, would be distilled into television ads, coordinated internet-based messages. In every debate, townhall meeting, and press conference, Democrat candidates would be called upon to either distance themselves, or justify these types of statements. Every Republican pundit would bring it up at every opportunity, every grassroots movement would be encouraged to help, and every candidate would be encouraged to hammer these statements home. This is what the Democrats would do, and it would be effective. By the end of this campaign, Reid would be as reviled as any man could be.

But we don’t have an effective opposition party. We have McConnell and Boehner.

Foreign billionaire who helped the Nazis find fellow Jews, describes it as the happiest time of his life, and funds massive leftist organizations = “progressive philanthropist”.

I would add to your post that if we actually had a free, fair and balanced media Reid would never be able to get away with this kind of prevarication. We know of course if a Republican Senate majority leader demonized for instance the people who came forward to tell a bunch of falsehoods about Mitt Romney, like the nut who claimed Romney is responsible for his wive's death because she had been laid off years before by a Bain-owned company, and called them all liars the media would have savaged him. But without a free and open media all the messaging in the world by Boehner and McConnell wouldn't make a hill of bean's worth of difference since the media will never fact check a Democrat. Sure we can run ads, but a lot of people will tune them out as just being partisan static. Without a credible media culture that would verify the truth of those ads, we'll make little impression on most voters. Not saying it's worth a try, but I just don't think this can all be laid at the feet of the GOP leadership. It probably feels like spitting into the wind to them to try to right the lies told by creeps like Reid.

Evil’ Koch Brothers Rank #59 in Political Donations Behind 18 Different Unions

http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2014/02/evil-koch-brothers-rank-59-in-political-donations-behind-18-different-unions/

Recently I got into an online argument with a flaming liberal. I thought I was finally rid of him when he came back to our message board debate to post a link to a 2012 mother jones article on the koch brothers and how much they were spending on the political process. In turn I posted the above gateway pundit link. I thought I had the last word. But a week later he comes back to tell me that its all propaganda. That list is phony. That the list doesn’t include all their shadowy money, etc. And the koch brothers are number one in political spending.

Sigh. Liberals. What are you going to do?

You are entirely right that the Democrats have the advantage of a fully compliant media. But that is why it is so important to have a top-down, coordinated approach. I respectfully disagree that a biased media renders an effective strategy impossible. It makes it more difficult, and requires extremely good leadership, but it is still possible, as long as the commitment is there.

The democrats and the media are not omnipotent. They only appear that way because of what the Republican party has become.
