The Latest Lie From The Democrats, Dutifully Repeated ad Nauseum By Legacy Media Hacks

The following panicked email was just sent by the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee:

How do we know it’s time for Republicans to move on?  Because according to CBS News, they’ve now spent $50 million in taxpayer money on 33 separate votes to repeal the President’s health care law – with absolutely nothing to show for it.

Please join us in telling Republicans to stop wasting time and money on health care repeal – it’s time for Republicans to move on.

Just think about what that $50 million was wasted on: 33 votes to take health insurance away from 30 million Americans. To re-open the Medicare prescription drug “donut hole” and bring back the ugly days of discrimination against people with pre-existing conditions.

Vote after vote, lawsuit after lawsuit, Republicans have spent two straight years now trying to gut, defund, or completely repeal every piece of the President’s health care law.

Meanwhile, we haven’t gotten a single vote for urgent priorities like the President’s American jobs Act, which would create up to 2 million new jobs but has been languishing for almost a year.

It’s long past time to move on to other important issues – like passing the President’s plans for middle class tax cuts and job creation. Please sign our petition telling Republicans to move on!

Every vote, and every penny Republicans spend trying to undermine health care reform is a penny wasted. Please join us in sending that message.

Sincerely,

John Winston
National Political Director
The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee

p.s. Republican state legislators are also undermining health care reform by blocking key provisions of it their states. You can help elect Democratic legislators who support affordable heath care for all Americans by contributing $10 or more to the DLCC.

Certainly sounds dire, doesn’t it? And quite fiscally irresponsible of those mean old hypocritical Republicans.

Except one thing – the idea that there have been 33 votes to repeal Obamacare is bovine sourced fertilizer. That hasn’t stopped CBS, the Washington Post and other major news outlets from carrying the water of the Democrats and helping them to spread the lies. There have been exactly two votes to repeal. TWO.

Lee Doren put it in perspective in a fiery rebuke:

Today’s lesson, boys and girls, is the same lesson as always: never, ever, ever, ever, ever, EVER believe the liberal media.

    I thought it seemed a trifle overblown, as I could recall nowhere near that many votes to repeal. And if those wasteful Republicans spent $50 million – also unlikely – why don’t we talk about the billions in DoE “loan guarantees” that went to Barky’s bundlers for “green” energy projects that immediately went belly-up? The only “green” these farces have produced involved tac dollars going into executives’ bank accounts.

    Excellent reporting.

    Thanks for doing the job that the legacy news won’t. Any legitimate news agency to report this any other way is simply lying.

    And that’s what the alphabet legacy news has become, liars for the Left.

    What I found more interesting was the $50 million for 33 votes (concur it is complete BS) so according to their own math, every time congress votes it cost us $1.51 for them to do nothing. I would bet it is significantly higher if you count salaries for congress, staff, researchers, etc. I wonder what congress now cost us everyday now that that they are in daily session vice the biannual session they had in a bygone era. $50million to save Trillions that we would have to borrow is a bargain.
