Harry Reid Said All Obamacare 'Horror Stories' Were 'Untrue.' Here's a Video Response Featuring 50 Cases From 50 States

"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."

Darrell Issa, R-Calif., who caused an uproar last week when he made the same gesture to order microphones cut as the top Democrat on his panel was trying to speak about the Internal Revenue Service scandal over targeting of conservative political groups, Tuesday, March 11, 2014, during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, March 11, 2014.

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.

In response to Reid’s claim, which he halfheartedly walked back, the Washington Free Beacon created a video montage featuring 50 of the supposedly fake Obamacare “horror stores” from 50 states.

The stories include everything from rising premium costs to canceled polices to employees’ hours being cut as a result of the new law.

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.
