More Health Care Reform Myth-Debunking from Adam Feser

Anonymous floods Aberdeen's Red Purple and Blue blog with a list of 49 myths and distortions about the health care reform bill. Adam Feser earns his blog pay by fighting back, debunking the claims of forced suicide, then unloading with a thunderous 40-plus-point rebuttal to Anonymous's bull.

I am stunned at the ignorance and willful lies displayed by opponents of, well, basically anything President Obama proposes. It takes a lot more effort to prove the truth than to spout a few convenient lies. As my friend Mr. Gibilisco points out, "This behavior is downright evil, and all responsible Republicans should denounce it at once. I won't wait for any deafening roar from that quarter, however."

In the absence of responsible politics from the GOP, I am thankful that there are diligent researchers like Mr. Feser who will do the work necessary to extinguish such harmful lies. Sincere applause, Adam. You are serving your country and the truth very well. Keep up the good work!

By the way, all you euthanasia-criers ought to learn to use hyperlinks. Instead of offering a vague assertion that "Page 429" lets the government kill you, use OpenCongress.org. They offer H.R. 3200 (and every other piece of legislation) in Web format with hyperlinks to every section and clause.

So come on, propagandists: you're smart enough to use the Web; get smart enough to use hyperlinks. It will make for better, more reasoned debate.


  1. The scary part is when you recognize that these people have been conditioned into this way of thinking. They do not apply critical thought, do not evaluate what they are saying, and won't accept any counter arguments regardless of how factual they may be. It's more of a religion than a position.

  2. Will the health care bill actually cut $500 billion from Medicare? That sounds like something that would have come out of the Bush administration. The conservatives at Fox News are jumping all over it! Is it true, or not?

    We need Ernest Hemingway to come back from the dead and help us all design and deploy DDD v2.0 (Doo-Doo Detector version two-point-oh).

    If a $500 billion cut to Medicare is part of the bill, and if it passes, won't that scare you, Cory? You will be 65 before you can say "Time got out of the bottle."

    The truth! The truth! My empire for the truth!

  4. Thanks for the shout out.

    I would recommend http://www.whitehouse.gov/realitycheck/ as a debunking site.
