Big Dan's Big News Dec 17, 2009

The Republicans and the health care industry have gutted the health care bill so much, it probably won't pass. But Republicans won't vote for it because they want no health care reform, and GOOD Democrats won't vote for it because it's been compromised so much it's not good reform. So as fellow Americans die each day due to no health care coverage, the travesty goes on like a 3rd world country. Every country covers all of it's citizens with health care except the United States. Yes, Israel & Mexico cover all their citizens with health care.

The things Republicans are doing to stop health care reform, that you really aren't seeing behind the scenes:

The debate over health care reform has dominated much of the media spotlight this year, and the conservative media have responded with a wide array of falsehoods and distortions aimed at twisting the debate and stopping progressive policies from being enacted. From Fox News host Sean Hannity's repeated cries that progressive plans are "socialized medicine" to The Wall Street Journal's falsehood-laden crusade against health reform, there has been no shortage of misinformation purveyors attempting to get in on the action.

But there has been one misinformer who outshines them all, relentlessly attacking health care reform by spreading falsehoods and distortions through opinion pieces and television appearances at nearly every stage of the debate. This individual is noteworthy not only for her prolificacy, but because of the broad extent to which her outlandish claims about health legislation have reverberated throughout the conservative media echo chamber.
