But the lies the Republicans make in attacking ObamaCare is truly worthy to be called out as Bill Maher does here
Now, look, I get it that neither party has a monopoly on lying, and in fact they all do it so often, they've invented their own word for it — "I misspoke". But how come the rule for one party — the Republican Party — is that when they get caught in a lie, they don't have to stop telling it?
They said Obamacare would use death panels. It doesn't.
They said it was a government takeover, and the insurance industry is making record profits.
They said it covered illegals. It doesn't.
They said it was a job killer. It hasn't been.
Now for sure, Obama also told a lie when he said everybody who likes their health care plan can keep it. And for about 2% of the population, that did turn out to be false. The difference is, he stopped saying it! He stepped up and said, you're right, my bad, because he understands there's this thing called observable reality. (audience applause)
But on the Republican side, observable reality needs more study. (audience laughter) Which is why their talking points that have been disproven, remain! Like a guest who's been asked to leave a party, but does not.
