SPIN ALERT: The House Did NOT Vote to Repeal Obamacare 33 Times

This is why you should not believe a single thing the VLWM says between now and the election. They are going to tell you lies to get their boy his Supreme Leader position. Once that happens, America is finished.

Not "fundementally transformed", FINISHED!!!! OVER!!! DONE!!! KAPUT!!! GONE!!!

GONE LIKE A FREIGHT TRAIN
GONE LIKE YESTERDAY
GONE LIKE A SOLDIER IN THE CIVIL WAR BANG BANG
GONE LIKE A 59 CADILLAC
LIKE ALL THE GOOD THINGS THAT AINT NEVER COMIN BACK!!!!

SPIN ALERT: The House Did NOT Vote to Repeal Obamacare 33 Times

The fact is, the House has only voted twice -- not 33 times -- to repeal Obamacare in its entirety. And the two times includes the July 11 vote. Regardless of the truth, media outlet after media outlet parroted the "33rd vote to repeal" narrative.

One example is Daniel Akst of Newsday, who scolded Republicans for this repeal attempt. "Despite a host of pressing national problems, House Republicans today voted for the 33rd time to repeal President Obama's health care law," Akst scornfully wrote.

Akst's partisan "those-evil-Republicans" narrative was the one most media outlets followed.

A few more examples: McClatchy-Tribune took up the claim. Naturally, so did Lawrence (Liar Liar) O'Donnell on an MSNBC show. Bloomberg threw out the claim, as did CBS News. The L.A. Times joined them.

In short, nearly every paper, TV News outlet and cable channel uncorked this "33rd repeal" nonsense.

So, how did the Old Media get to a claim of a "33rd repeal vote"? By including the 31 other votes that removed small parts of Obamacare. It should be noted that most of those votes were a bipartisan repealing of small segments of Obamacare.

Remember when former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi chortled that we'd have to pass Obamacare before we'd know what's in it? Well, once the Democrats forced passage of that flawed bill stuffed with un-vetted and destructive provisions, many Democrats were shocked by the garbage stuffed into the 2,700 pages of Obamacare, pages not one single lawmaker ever read before voting on the bill.
