This is the exact kind of accomplishes absolutely nothing, closes off discussion, false knowledge implanting BULLSHIT that has got to stop!
And I had some serious respect for Tim Scott until I saw this in an email from his office:
"On the one-year anniversary of the 2,700-page $2.6 trillion government takeover of health care, Rep. Tim Scott (SC-01) issued the following statement: "
Quite simply, Mr. Scott, that is a big fat LIE. Government has not "taken over".
And it wasn't so much as health CARE reform as health INSURANCE reform.
I refer to my friend and her family who lost everything simply by having a child born with a disability before the health insurance reforms went into place. I defy anyone who knows their story to still say that the reforms were wrong.
Mr. Scott, sir, in the sending of this falsehood to the people of your district, you have branded yourself a liar. Your base of rabid tea drinkers may allow themselves to fly into foaming frenzies when they see things like that, but trust me, there are many, many more of us who aren't so ready to leap up and react like the puppets you seem to think we are when you plant falsehoods like that in your statements.
