PolitiFact Lights Its Own Pants on Fire to Spin ObamaCare Premium Increases
People will be able to look at their own increasing premiums and deductibles and see the truth.
Check it out:
The left-wing PolitiFact said they were going to start attacking pundits, and that attack has begun, mainly to protect ObamaCare. Sean Hannity has been handed a “mostly false” for citing a Manhattan Institute study PolitiFact didn’t like, and financial reporter Maria Bartiromo earned a “false” for relying on news reports and her own reporting to claim that under ObamaCare “we are becoming something of a part-time country.”
But in its zeal to spin this job-killing, middle-class socking, deficit-increasing boondoggle as a good thing, PolitiFact chose to downright lie about why health insurance premiums are increasing.
“[N]ew rules for insurance plans will tend to push some rates up — because the plans must provide better coverage.”
That is objectively and provably false.
