Just managed to watch some of Fux News coverage

It's a thing of 'beauty'. First up was Lindsay Graham, so pissed off that he could barely talk (literally). He was red in the face and everything. "It's a tax increase - really- it's a tax increase". Then, Megan (I'm a blonde lawyer) Kelly now firming up the other talking point de jour - that since public displeasure (i.e. Town Halls) was instrumental in getting Rethugs elected in 2010, we're now going to have a whole new summer of Town Halls now, which will sweep Democrats from Congress. The Murdock-Fux news plan is twofold:

1- Keep repeating that, since the USSCt found the authority to fund the ACA was based on Congress' TAXING authority, that the ACA is now a MASSIVE TAX INCREASE. (I found that meme repeated by eight people in less than an hour watching Fux)

2- Try and gin up false public outrage again like the manufactured Town Halls of 2010. Get the people scared about the unknown and LIE to them once again about death panels, and, of course MASSIVE TAX INCREASES.

3 - It's just a MASSIVE TAX INCREASE

REPEAT AND REPEAT AD NAUSEAM

1. Today's decision was a blow to the death panels

(aka insurance companies) not a knockout blow, but they'll feel it for a long time.

2. I just saw Cheeto on CSPAN 3

and it seems that his whole statement was like a couple sentences and he walked away.

4. I have to say that it's very fun to watch the Fox Ministry Of Propaganda squirm when they don't get their way.

Sorry Fox - you and your brainwashed viewers don't rule all the time!
