Specter: GOP Health Care Claims “Simply Not True”

Don’t reflect the broader public opinion of the proposed overhaul

AP/Huffington Post, 08-16-09


Sen. Arlen Specter says critics of the Democrats’ health care proposals are not representative of the public’s view on the issue.

The Pennsylvania Democrat says people who are angry at town hall meetings don’t reflect the broader public opinion of the proposed overhaul. Specter has faced tough town hall audiences in his home state.

Utah GOP Sen. Orrin Hatch says the crowds are representative of people “up in arms” over the plan. He says the outrage is genuine.

Hatch also says the Democratic National Committee and organized labor are also sending supporters to town halls to challenge Republicans.

As for reform itself, Specter battled Hatch’s distortions about end-of-life planning. “That is simply not true,” he said. “There are no death panels. And when Senator Hatch comes to his basic point, that this is a government takeover, that is not true either.”

The McGlynn: Hatch is just Republican doing a ” hatchet job ” just as Grassly  & McCotter did with the ” death plan for the elderly “. Every time our nation strives to go forward,  the fools  of the far right come out of the woodwork and form the Mob…………..and lie.
