You Can Stand Me Up At The Gates Of Hell But I Won't Back Down

Kamala Harris (D-CA) has been known to advance progressive claptrap prior to her tenure as a US Senator and has doubled down on that BS since taking office.

Let’s take a look, shall we?
On May 4, this astonishingly clueless woman claimed via two tweets that under the Republican health care bill "129 million people with pre-existing conditions could be denied coverage and insurers could charge sick people more money."
This lie, yes, lie is typical of the left.  Clearly, they know that Obamacare is dying on the vine.  Every damned one of them is terrified of its repeal and replacement knowing its catastrophic effects have doomed their Party.  They obfuscate the facts for the expressed purpose of scaring the beejeezus out of low information voters.  Her lie was called out by The Washington Post giving it four Pinocchios.

WaPo stridently pointed out:
A 2010 investigation by the House Energy and Commerce Committee found that companies denied coverage to one out of every seven applicants. So that would be 14 percent. Even if you took the entire US population with health insurance—about 257 million people—that means 34 million would face a denial of coverage. Within the individual market—assuming every state sought a waiver—the result would be 2.5 million, assuming they all experienced a lapse in coverage of more than two months.
When CNN’s Jake Tapper questioned her false claims she hemmed and hawed refusing to back down. 

Mind you, it’s only been a week since the House passed the AHCA, but a Quinnipiac University poll of 1,078 voters showed disapproval at 56 percent.  The approval was just 21 percent, four points higher than the last survey on the issue.

Twenty-three percent of respondents said they didn't know or couldn't answer the question.

So there you have it. Kamala and her fellow liars are doing their dead-level best to taint anything the Republicans do to lower deductibles, provide affordable coverage, provide better care with zero cuts to Medicaid.

NOTE:  We apologize to Tom Petty for appropriating lyrics attributed to him for the title of this post.
