TheBlaze Radio host, Mike Opelka, wanted to give credit where credit was due on Saturday's "Pure Opelka." Opelka revealed to his audience that "The Washington Post" found comments made by Democrat members of the House and Senate regarding the new GOP replacement bill for the Affordable Care Act ahead of Thursday's House vote on bill to be "100 percent misleading."

One of the misleading quotes highlighted on the show was that from House Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) when she said, "Is it an act of mercy to throw 24 million people off of health insurance so Republicans can hand billionaires a massive new tax giveaway?"

Among the other quotes featured in the "The Washington Post" article from Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), all of which were found to be misleading, Sanders led the bunch with a whopping "Four Pinocchios."

Opelka put the findings in perspective for the audience when they're discussing the matter with their liberal friends.

"Take the truth with you. Put it in your back pocket. When you run into your liberal friend today, and just on the on the occasion that you have a political discussion... just be ready to just say, 'You know all those talking points? I'll send you to The Washington Post, and you can see how they're all wrong,'" Opelka said.
