How can Mike Pence get away with outrageous lies about the health care bill?

How can Mike Pence get away with outrageous lies about the health care bill?
GOP's health care bill now involves blatant falsehoods — because their voters will literally believe anything
BOB CESCA MONDAY, JUL 17, 2017 04:00 AM CDT

You’re not insane. The congressional Republicans and the White House are absolutely lying about the impact of Trumpcare, and as with their lies about the Trump-Russia scandal, the lies are glaringly obvious.

As you observe these lies while they sail past virtually unchallenged, it’s not surprising if you might feel a little crazy. You’re not. They know they’re lying and they know you know they’re lying. But here’s the critical distinction: The pro-Trump GOP isn’t talking to you.

In other words, and to repeat, Pence lied to America’s governors and, of course, to the American people when he preposterously guaranteed that Trumpcare “strengthens” and “secures” Medicaid. Nor does it save Medicaid, as Pence promised. In reality, it’ll do exactly the opposite.

1. Because nobody is paying attention to him...

I suspect we will come to regret that.

2. He's a modern "Christian"

Didn't you know that modern "Christians" can lie, as long as it's in the name of "God"!!!

And those that support this administration, they're dumber then a bag of hammers and would believe anything that they are told!!!

4. He and his fellow fake Christians follow "republican Jesus"

Which is Ayn Rand in disguise.

6. Time to make the point that if Pence lies so easily about Healthcare, he

is just as capable of lying about his own knowledge of the Russian collusion.
