Correcting The Lies About Health Care Reform

I read Alan Colms Correcting The Lies About Health Care Reform article and was reminded how one of my old favorite shows on Fox was Hannity and Colms so I could listen to them hash out different view points.

Here's a quote that supposedly corrects a lie...

"Medicare: Republicans talk about $500 billion being cut from Medicare, but benefits to most beneficiaries will be as good or better going forward."

I had to go check out Harry Reid's website and guess what ...

I couldn't find any quotes to share where Reid proudly reminded anyone about the $500 billion cut.


I wonder why Harry Reid doesn't want to clarify that "lie about health care reform" with a reminder that ... yes, $500 billion from the program, but it really isn't that bad, we promise!

Nor does Harry Reid describe that Nevada will get an extra $2 billion for Medicare as opposed to some states.

Harry Reid carries a copy of the US Constitution in his inside coat pocket, so he should know that "no preference shall be given by any regulation of commerce or revenue to the ports of one state over those of another".

It would be interesting to hear the Supreme Court's stand on that.


If Harry Reid was interested in clearing up any lies Republicans are telling, then maybe he could at least have at least updated his site. As of today, it still says: "America’s healthcare system is broken. That’s why Senator Harry Reid is leading the charge to pass fiscally responsible health insurance reform that cuts costs, protects patients’ choice of their doctors and ensures quality affordable healthcare for all Americans."
