So much for “civility”.
“They say it’s a government takeover of health care, a big lie just like Goebbels,” Cohen said. “You say it enough, you repeat the lie, you repeat the lie, and eventually, people believe it. Like blood libel. That’s the same kind of thing.”

The source of that mealy-mouthed statement is Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN).
Wanna bet he’s never even read the bill, or any of its predecessors? I have. It’s a blatant mandatory government takeover of your healthcare, chock full of higher taxes, higher insurance premiums, job losses, and rationed care at the hands of death panels who will decide if treatment will be provided and if it’s willing to pay for it.
It also has items totally unrelated to healthcare; the takeover of student loans, federal purchases of Viagra and other erectile dysfunction drugs for sex offenders, culling revenue from Medicare, the egregious expansion of the IRS into a health care enforcement agency for those who don’t pay up. This socialist monstrosity will also add billions more to the deficit and debt.
Newsflash for Cohen: Your Goebbles-style propaganda is not going over real well with the American people.
Despicable, arrogant, dismissive, Constitution-trashing assclowns like you, are the reason why you got shellacked in November. Keep it up. Everytime one of you spouts epithets and lies to prop up your argument, the more angry and politically active we will be.
Here’s a link to the bill. READ IT.
