Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said last month that all of the “horror stories” emanating from Obamacare are “untrue.”
“Despite all that good news, there’s plenty of horror stories being told. All of them are untrue, but they’re being told all over America,” Reid said in a speech on the floor of the Senate.
Reid initially claimed in February that the billionaire conservative Koch brothers were funding a secretive campaign designed to smear the health care law: “We heard about the evils of Obamacare, about the lives it’s ruining in Republicans’ stump speeches and in ads paid for by oil magnates, the Koch brothers. But in those tales, turned out to be just that: tales, stories made up from whole cloth, lies distorted by the Republicans to grab headlines or make political advertisements.”
“Mr. President, these two brothers are trying to buy America. They not only funnel money through their Americans for Prosperity, they funnel money into all kinds of organizations to do the same thing that they’re doing. They’re trying to buy America. I don’t believe America is for sale. We’ll see, Mr. President,” he added.
