The massive propaganda war against Obamacare by Sen. Mike Lee and his tea party/GOP extremists is a misguided attempt to deprive millions of Americans of substantial improvements in health care. Their attack is based on lies and distortions designed to create fear and confusion to justify their threat to shut down the government and defund Obamacare.
A government shutdown is so irresponsible that conservative stalwart Mitt Romney, House Speaker John Boehner and Sens. Mitch McConnell and John McCain have spoken against it.
Because the GOP offers no alternative, defunding Obamacare would return us to the former system of poor coverage, exorbitant premium increases and obscene profits for insurers.
