More BS Obamacare stories, brought to you by the Koch Bros.

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/dc/koch-obamacare-ad-politifact-false

Americans For Prosperity is struggling to find a way to attack Obamacare that fits the facts.

The Koch-funded conservative activist group is spending millions of dollars on TV ads aimed at undermining the Affordable Care Act and unseating Democratic senators who voted for it in their 2014 reelection fights.

But the ads keep falling flat upon examination of their claims.

PolitiFact looked into the claim that people were "paying more and getting less" under Obamacare. Data from the Kaiser Family Foundation reveals that insurance premiums have increased at a slower rate since Obamacare passed than was the case before it became law.

Well then, do any of you SB Teabaggers have an ACTUAL story, or are you going to insist that you're not Koch-suckers parroting made-up BS?

No votes yet

It really is true!
Scott Brown was horrified to find out a fellow republican had benefitted from Obamacare.

TPM is a liberal-based journalist organization. And BTW, the Koch Brothers donated to Democrats back in 2010. I bet none of the Democrats who got their money returned it.

[citation needed] on the donations to Dems, and specifically who and how much. Because it makes a big difference if we talk $100 to one Dem vs $10M to 100 Republicans.

Just keep running on it and telling us how great it is. It'll make November that much better for me.

Politics and the service don't mix, soldier.

So show me how they crossed.

You've made several claims about this yet you have yet to cite an example where I haven't made it clear where my opinion is solely my opinion.

Start your own blog if you don't like it, censor.

Boy howdy, someone doesn't like being told their opinion sucks so bad they're better off keeping their mouth shut.

LOL like you.

'Shutting mouths' is not a power granted to you by your formation documents.

Maybe you need to consider holding a personal constitutional convention.

AC should attend some kind of convention beginning with the letter "C", and I don't mean a constitutional convention.

No, you're thinking of yourself going to the Chicken Lovers Convention. And by love I don't mean the sense where one loves KFC...

"And by love I don't mean the sense where one loves KFC.." Very poor Sentence Structure and no comma's, Mr Swampbubble English teacher..

"PolitiFact looked into the claim that people were "paying more and getting less" under Obamacare. Data from the Kaiser Family Foundation reveals that insurance premiums have increased at a slower rate since Obamacare passed than was the case before it became law."

Conflicting facts:

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/09/rising-health-costs-undermi...

"Spending on health care rose 4.6 percent in 2011 — up $4,500 per person, on average — according to the nonpartisan Health Care Cost Institute. That’s up from a 3.8 growth rate in 2010.

Health insurance premiums for individuals and families also climbed year-over-year, up 3 percent ($186) on average for an individual and 4 percent ($672) on average for a family, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.

During Obama’s term, between 2009 to 2012, premiums have climbed $2,370 for the average family with an employer-provided plan – a rate faster than the during the previous four years under President George W. Bush, according to Kaiser.

Someone is lying either AC or ABC News.
