Last night outside our private event in Rochester Hills, the Teabaggers held a rally along Rochester Road. Of course, the media didn't bother to come inside to hear Congressman Gary Peters address his constituents about health care. I guess the protesters were a better story.
However, what the corporate media didn't bother to report are the lies that Glenn Clark, Republican 9th Congressional District Chair, fed to the eager lapdogs at Fox News. Glenn said the Democratic health care plan was a "government takeover" of health care. That's a lie. In fact, as currently written, America's health insurance companies stand to get 30 million new customers.
Glenn also said the "health care scheme" is going to take away our health care rights and options. LIE! Come on, Glenn. Can't you tell the truth just once?
Glenn also seemed to imply that under the Democratic plan we might not be able to see specialists. LIE! Why doesn't the corporate media challenge these lies from Republicans?
