We often wonder just where the righties we know get the factual garbage they spew. Many are sincere, but the Republican noise machine and truth are mutually exclusive. The greatest violator of all is, of course, the Republican Reichsministry of Propaganda, Faux Noise. This is especially true where ObamaCare is concerned.
Ashley Dionne, a recent guest on Mike Huckabee’s show, claimed that her insurance premiums would jump from $75 per month to $319 per month for her family. She proclaimed the act to be the "Unaffordable Care Act" and went even further, claiming her future and that of her children had been ‘raped.’
Unfortunately, someone forgot to mention to Ashley that her premiums were offset with subsidies, so she would really pay $223 per YEAR as well as receiving assistance with copayments. Oops.
Last Friday Sean Hannity hosted a special on how the Affordable Care Act is hurting Americans. It’s a claim we hear every day from Ted Cruz on down to your average right wing Twitter troll. Every time I hear it, I wonder how it is even possible that so many are in so much pain over a law that opens up the health insurance market to everyone.
Evidently I’m not the only one with those questions. Eric Stern, a former aide to Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer and one of the key people involved in Montana’s exchange, took a hard look at the "regular people" claiming they were harmed by Obamacare.
Stern called the people who appeared on Hannity’s show to get more detail on their stories. Surprise! It seems there was more to every single one…

She sure is convincing, nut what she said is dead wrong. I’m guessing she lacks the wisdom to dig for the fact herself and lives in a state where the Republican government is misinforming people to keep them from getting care. In my book, that’s just plain evil!
