I grow tired of the state controlled media and their efforts to help increase support for Obama-Care. On the Today Show this morning, they discussed an NBC poll still showing opposition to socialized health care, but then they say it is because "large numbers of Americans "still" believe the "myths" about the Obama plan. What do they consider "Myths?" They say it is a myth that the plan would let the government decide what care the elderly will receive. The House bill as written will do just that. Another "myth" NBC says Americans still believe is that the bill would provide taxpayer monies to perform abortions. Under the proposed legislation, virtually every individual will be required to have health care coverage that meets “minimum benefits standards” established by the administration. Those minimum benefits will include abortion unless Congress acts to explicitly exclude abortion from any government mandated coverage or taxpayer funded health plan. The final "myth" is that illegal aliens will receive health care with taxpayer money. They get free health care now and are bankrupting cities and states because of that care. NBC then shows some numbers with the statement, "When Americans hear the "facts", they are in favor of Obama-Care." NBC tries it's best to convince Americans that most people would support Obama-Care if they just didn't listen to the Republican lies. NBC and the other state controlled media outlets are a joke. Reminds me of a Noam Chomsky quote that states, "Any dictator would admire the uniformity and obedience of the U.S. media." That pretty much says it all!
