Ok, kids, here we see the ReichWing talking points spin memo in operation. Take good notes. Some of these points are "true" in that they are probably in one version of the bill (which has yet to be enacted, and remember that all bills go thru a process like this, whereby various things are tossed in the ring, and then get rewritten, edited, deleted, etc. In other words: none of this now is set in stone).

But Big Insurance (you can bet this is who is generating this SPIN of lies) inserts their little lies throughout, using typical contard "red meat":

• Page 321: Hospital expansion hinges on "community" input: in other words, yet another payoff for ACORN.
*** HUH? How did ACORN get in here? Note that ACORN has NADA, ZIP, ZERO to w/this, but it gets inserted by Big Insurance to rile up the base, who is just waiting to get "upset."

• Page 469: Community-based Home Medical Services: more payoffs for ACORN.
*** NOTE the uber-horrid ACORN insert.

And then this spin:

• Page 489: Government will cover marriage and family therapy. Government intervenes in your marriage.
• Page 494: Government will cover mental health services: defining, creating and rationing those services.

Needless to say, if gov't is "covering" something, then it is nefariously eeeevul, etc. I mean, srsly, "rationing" services. And AS IF, we aren't ALREADY getting RATIONED services now.

I have a friend who broke her wrist just recently. She requires surgery and is in some pain, but bc of various issues, she has to wait THREE weeks for surgery.

So, let's just talk about how services are rationed now. But Big Insurance ain't gonna talk about that.

Please. I call a big fat B.S.

But: note how it's done.

The sheer number of claims is designed to overwhelm. It would take hours to check out all of these claims, and of course most RW won't bother to check even one of them. Gulp, swallow, absorbed!

Below is a website that takes on a few of the claims

P.S. I see they slipped in a few lines of bold red fonts -- otherwise the reader might get bored and stop reading.

I LOVE the "pleasecutthecrap" website, esp it's name. Thanks for that tip.

Pretty much sums it all up! What a buncha crap, and yes, w/out the RED FONTS to wake us up from our stupor, we might not know what to be pissed off about.

LOL! You have got to be kidding me!

Earth to wingnuts: "Covering" something means that they'll pay for it. So they'll pay for your marriage and family therapy.

The Bastards! Paying to keep your marriage together must be some part of their dastardly plot to destroy the sanctity of marriage! Or something...

These are the same morons who couldn't give a shit about Bush wiretapping anyone he felt like without a warrant. Enough said.

Yep. No reason to question any of this. No reason at all.

I could be wrong, but doesn't this:
"Government mandates establishment of outcome-based measures"
mean that the government will be measuring and following the outcomes of treatment in order to make sure that as many people as possible come out of their medical treatment in better health than they went in?

In other words, you don't go in for a routine procedure and leave with a life-threatening infection NOT "i.e., rationing."

I guess, by RW logic, this means that the Republican party is working to make sure your hospital gives you pneumonia and you die. Probably as some mass effort at disenfranchising minority voters.
