The Little Lies The Media Tell About ObamaCare
(IBD) – Bias: Heard the one about how House Republicans have passed 40-plus bills to repeal or defund ObamaCare, all of which went nowhere? It’s not true. Yet the mainstream press continues to peddle this blatant falsehood.
In the run-up to Friday’s House vote to defund ObamaCare, the media tried to portray it as part of some deranged anti-ObamaCare syndrome. As evidence, they claim Republicans have already tried this dozens of times before, all to no avail. Some examples:
• “The House of Representatives has voted 40 times to repeal or curtail the Affordable Care Act since Republicans took control of the chamber in 2011 — and each time the Democratic Senate has swatted away their bills.” (Los Angeles Times)
• “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. And if you’re a House Republican, be sure to repeat that process another 40 times.” (MSNBC)
… Just one problem: Twenty percent of those bills made it to Obama’s desk and secured his signature… Yet the media pretend these things never happened. This is admittedly a little thing. But as the Good Book says: “The person who is trustworthy in very small matters is also trustworthy in great ones; and the person who is dishonest in very small matters is also dishonest in great ones.”
