Ann Coulter Blatantly Lies on Fox News About Friend’s Sister Dying Due to Obamacare

ann-coulter-1I’ve always known Ann Coulter was pretty much a bottom feeder as far as human beings go.  She and Rush Limbaugh are the two individuals I see most often spouting off nothing but pure garbage.  It’s just an endless stream of vile, disgusting ignorance.

Well, I just watched an interview between Coulter and Tucker Carlson on Fox News that was clearly nothing more than propped up right-wing propaganda.

Coulter starts out with her typical “the government can do no good” rhetoric saying that she wished our health care system would be run by the same people who make the iPhone or flat screen TV’s, because everything done by the private sector “gets better and less expensive over time.”

So let me break down that ignorance really quickly.  First, the iPhone and flat screen televisions are goods, not services, so there’s a big difference there.  Also, these products are often made overseas, usually in sweat shops in developing countries.

Basically her comparison between these two makes absolutely no sense.  Unless she’s saying we should outsource our health care services?  Which wouldn’t make any sense either.

Then whose health costs were going down?  Outside of Medicare and Medicaid the private sector was running (and still is running) our health system and costs were skyrocketing with people actually paying more money for less coverage.

Basically the exact opposite of what she said was happening with the private sector being in charge.  Coverages were getting worse while costs were becoming more expensive.

But even if you want to ignore her ignorance on all of that – which is quite a lot to ignore – she took it a step further by claiming that her friend’s sister died because she lost her insurance due to “Obamacare.”  She claimed her sister’s friend lost her insurance because “Blue Shield completely just pulled out of California.”

Really?  Because this seems to be the active website for Blue Shield of California.

She then goes on to say that the woman had tried unsuccessfully to sign up for insurance on the Healthcare.gov website but couldn’t get through.

But of course she did.  Because that’s not right out of the “Conservative Talking Points Against Obamacare” handbook or anything.

This isn’t October or early November.  You’re telling me this women had been trying since October to sign up for health insurance but couldn’t once get through to the website?  Even in late-November, December and January when the website was basically working?  She couldn’t get through not once?  Didn’t try the phone number either?

Excuse my language – but that’s bullshit.

Oh, and by the way, California has a state-run exchange website called Covered California so she didn’t need to use Healthcare.gov anyway.

She then continues by saying this women went into “septic shock” on Thursday and was informed by her friend that she had died over the weekend because of “Obamacare.”

And Tucker Carlson’s reaction to this looked so incredibly staged I almost laughed. He said, “That is completely shocking,” while not appearing shocked at all because this was clearly some kind of staged segment where he knew what she was about to say.

I’m not going to say she’s lying about someone dying, but her “reasoning” for it is complete garbage.

First, Blue Shield of California still exists so that was a blatant lie.  Then she claims this woman who died tried repeatedly to get health care through the “Obamacare” website, which is another lie because it’s been working since about mid to late-November.  And I guess you could call that two lies because California has its own state-run health care exchange so this woman wouldn’t have had to use Healthcare.gov anyway.

So this whole story is complete nonsense.  I’m not saying someone didn’t die, but it damn sure wasn’t because of the reasons Ann Coulter sat there on Fox News brazenly lying about.

    I found this on the Blue Shield Life and Health Insurance (BSL) website.

    Extending coverage for three months is confusing for members already unsure of significant changes in the market

    The ACA mandates that all new coverage sold starting January 1, 2014 meet new benefit and cost-sharing standards. Covered California also requires all health plans that participate in the new Exchange marketplace not to renew existing coverage beyond December 31, 2013. Blue Shield Life’s existing plans do not meet ACA requirements.

    Consistent with those requirements, all BSL members were provided 90-days notice and alternative coverage options to help them transition to an ACA-compliant plan.

    To summarize: The new notices requested by CDI contradict the prior notices and may confuse BSL members, which could cause them to miss out on potential premium subsidies, pay a deductible twice in one calendar year, or even lose coverage altogether by failing to find new coverage by March 31. (end)

    Its Aetna and United Healthcare that are leaving California, not BSL)

    • Stephen Barlow

      In otherwords, Coulter’s rant is a COMPLETE FABRICATION. WHY are these FlatEarthers and UFO verifiers even ALLOWED out in public unsupervised?

      That’s right! BEcause Reagan closed all the hospitals and made jail the only place a mental patient can get meds…

      Are you imagining Ann Coulter as an orange jumper clad lesbian prison bitch too?

      • Jim Bean

        The claim that the woman lost her coverage is plausible because millions have. At this moment, more people have lost coverage than new people have gained it. The evidence also indicates things were even more screwed up in CA because state government decided to ‘fix’ things even more so its also plausible the now dead woman got jammed up in the shuffle. Consequently, the COMPLETE FABRICATION conclusion is illogically arrived at on the available evidence. Furthermore, the authors suggestion that the woman who responsibly provided for her own health insurance prior to Obamacare was suddenly stricken with a case of irresponsibility is not evidence-based, is purely speculation, and he makes no claim otherwise.
        Ann makes liberals angry and hateful by prodding readers/listeners to look at and consider things the Left want doesn’t them looking at. This is a case in point. Then, upon being exposed and finding themselves unable to defend themselves, they attack her as an alternative. I’m not saying everything Ann says is to be believed. I’m just saying that perhaps some folks are too blinded by their hatred to see ANYTHING clearly where she’s concerned.

      • littlelizard25

        Beanhead…you ba**ers are always saying how “millions have lost their coverage”, yada yada yada, but not a single one of you will post a single link to a site that provides vetted stats to prove what you claim. Do you have such a link, or are you just repeating what you have been told to repeat by some right wing talking head that can’t provide proof either?

      • Ralph Chubbuck

        Clearly you are an idiot. The administration even admitted millions have lost coverage and likely millions more will follow. Funny that fact is conveniently pushed under the rug. Typical liberal, head so far up your king’s anus you are blinded by the bullshit

      • littlelizard25

        People can say anything. I can say you are an ignorant a*shole, and even tho it is probably true, I should still have to able to back it up if I say it. If you or beanhead can’t provide a link to research that can provide vetted stats proving your claims, just say so. Nothing wrong in admitting you are talking out your a**.

      • Jim Bean

        I guess expecting you to do a little background research on your own on the topic you intend pontificate upon is out of the question?

      • littlelizard25

        You’re the one that made the claim beanhead. If I make a claim like that I would at least be sure of the numbers first.

      • Brad Fulton

        AND you would have the smarts to cite your sources.

      • Ray

        Brad it was Jim that made the claim, so he should back it up with by letting us see where he getting his sources to back up his numbers so we can also check out this same source.

      • littlelizard25

        Yes I would, but I guess beanhead doesn’t have any sources except his a**. Typical teaba**er. I have better things to do now, like clean out the horse stalls.

      • robert_howard

        Jim, Ralph, I’ll be honest, guys. I don’t believe your claim that more people have *lost* coverage due to the ACA than have gained it. I’ve searched around for info but all I’ve found to back up your claim is speculation on a lot of conservative-leaning op-ed sites; no actual numbers. If you say the President himself admitted it, could you please tell me when or maybe include a link? If you can show me where you are getting this info from, I’ll gladly shut my mouth. (Except to say you were right and I was wrong.)

        Thanks.

      • Jim Bean

        Robert, you are correct. There are a lot of numbers floating around out there and there is a lot of playing around with the word ‘lost’. To me, for the sake of this discussion, ‘lost’ means a plan cancelled and there seems to be little dispute that millions have experienced that. The term ‘new enrollments’ to me means, someone who did not have health insurance but got it now because of Obamacare and the term does NOT include anyone who had their insurance cancelled but picked up a new plan under Obamacare – because the numbers are being offered relative to claiming Obamacare was going to insure 30 million people that didn’t previously have it. As for some verification of plans cancelled, providing links dumps your comment into the moderation hopper. Past the following text in your browser and click on the politico link.

        - Millions of Americans who had their health plans cancelled will be exempt from the Obamacare individual mandate, the administration said Thursday — a surprise move that comes just before Monday’s deadline to sign up for coverage starting Jan. 1.

        The administration also said people who had their plans cancelled could get a scaled-back catastrophic plan, which has more limited benefits than those included in other Obamacare health plans. -

      • Phil the observer

        Hate to bring this point up, BUT,,,Insurance companies exist to make money. Period. They are NOT there to help the sick. They are there to make money. Therefore, I find it VERY difficult to believe that insurance companies would drop MILLIONS of people paying those premiums month after month. Maybe a few folks who were really running up bills; BUT MILLIONS…Nope, Do The math on a CHEAP policy, Call it $300 per month, are you going to tell me that the industry is going to want to take a $300 million dollar hit every month? NOPE, I haven’t heard of Insurance companies laying off any workers either, So have to dispute the MILLIONS have lost their coverage claims.

      • Jim Bean

        Not even Obama disputes that millions of plans have been canceled. Insurance companies don’t worry about it because they know those whose plans have been cancelled will have to buy a new policy – possibly at a higher cost.

      • Sue Roediger

        I went to buy new little slides for my walker. The old ones I got two years ago were $13. They didn’t have any more like them. The new type are slightly bigger and made of a more durable plastic. They cost $18.50. WAAAAA ! My old ones are cancelled…………my newer – better- ones cost more. See what I am saying????

      • Jim Bean

        Nah. The price went up because of the Dem’s medical device tax. Be careful where you walk, now.

      • Sue Roediger

        they really are more sturdy and better quality

      • Sue Roediger

        Having an existing policy cancelled, but being offered a new, possible better, one is not loss of insurance coverage.

      • Sue Roediger

        and they are still reporting big profits

      • John Masters

        That’s right about the “scaled-back plan,” except for one little thing. The plans that were cancelled, were cancelled because they didn’t include the increased coverages required under the ACA. People can sign up for better plans for the same or less money. However, the Administration did scramble and say that those companies cancelling plans can continue to sell them for a while, even if they have the limited benefits that don’t meet the ACA floor.

      • Jim Bean

        I agree. However, if I remember correctly (and maybe I don’t since the discussion has gone in so many direction) the original topic was “what constitutes a ‘new enrollment’ with regard to the Administrations 30-million-more-people-covered’ promise.

      • Brad Fulton

        In other words, SHOW/CITE sources…

      • jimshannon

        Where’s your link? Or do you reason ad hominem instead of using facts? Love how well you disgrace yourself with your vulgarity, too.

      • suburbancuurmudgeon

        No, YOU are the idiot. So “millions lost coverage.” Big deal. Those were policies that covered pretty much nothing. They had options to get new coverage and get a subsidy if they qualified. So what, these people were incapable of signing up for new insurance on their own, like that idiot in Florida the conservatives used until we found out that her previous “insurance” was $54/month???

      • BobLoblaw

        NOone lost coverage. It changed. So sad that common sense is also lost on the haters.

      • Sue Roediger

        as I said above “I went to buy new little slides for my walker. The old ones I got two years ago were $13. They didn’t have any more like them. The new type are slightly bigger and made of a more durable plastic. They cost $18.50. WAAAAA ! My old ones are cancelled…………my newer – better- ones cost more. See what I am saying????”

      • Brad Fulton

        Sure, $18.50. If you were enrolled in the ACA you would get a tax credit.

      • Sue Roediger

        I am living on just my social security….. so no taxable income so no use for tax credit

      • Nell Webbish

        4.7 million received cancellation letters. That is not the same things as 4.7 million do not have health insurance. 2.1 million signed up new plans on the exchanges, 2.3 million had their original place extended or were automatically transferred to a new plan. That leaves about 300,000 people, of which some percentage have been covered under expanded Medicare.

        Given that the enrollment doesn’t end until April 2014, anyone making the claim that millions of people are without healthcare because their plans got canceled under the ACA is either willfully ignorant or a bald-faced liar. Coulter is clearly a liar. I have no idea what you are.

      • Sue Roediger

        nailed it ….. thank you

      • GOPhater

        Ralph….typical Reich Wing Nazi Teanderthal a**hole, with your sheep head shove up the the disgusting c**ts of the ReTHUGliCONS…such a shame to be that stupid

      • Brad Fulton

        No need to descend to THEIR level, GOPHater…

      • Jim Bean

        Injecting some accuracy into the discussion made you unpopular with 7 people. I’m not sure what that means but I know it isn’t healthy.

      • LadyeCatte

        No, idiot– The administration said that millions have lost coverage to their old policies and being offered new ones with BETTER coverage at more affordable prices. You really have to be some sort of nutball to hear only the parts you want and dismiss the rest as background noise.

      • jimshannon

        Please provide a link for your erroneous claim that more ppl have lost insurance than the 9 mill so far who have gained insurance?

      • BobLoblaw

        They can’t because there are no links. So sad that these conservatives hear the word changed and they automatically think that means lost. Horribly sad that approx. 1/2 of this nation is that ignorant.

      • Jim Bean

        Past this in your browser. Links are unreliable on disqus. And remember that some of your friends are counting those who already had insurance, lost it because of Obamacare, and then regained it on the exchanges and “new’ enrollees. Figures don’t lie but liars do figure.

        This chart shows that at least 4.7 million Americans received the cancellation notices. It also provides details about what decision has been made in each state since Obama’s announcement (some states had previously decided to allow insurers to continue older policies for a limited time).

      • Michael Ryland

        Paste what?? What chart???

      • Sam

        Finally, someone who knows how to spell “PASTE”!
        JIM BEAN please take note!

      • Why5ks

        Jim doesn’t know how to display facts or interpret their true meanings, because that would require cognitive thinking skills. 4.7 million did receive cancellation notices, most of which would be able to find more for less than the policies they had cancelled. The last estimate from the CBO was that between 40,000 and 80,000 people who had policy cancellation would end up paying more for a new policy. How does that compare to 9 million new people enrolled in healthcare plans? Wait, that is really not important let’s compare it to the most relevant and compelling fact; on average each year more than 100,000 people have lost health insurance because of pre-existing conditions, job loss, too expensive to cover, and a host of other reason for the last 4 decades. So in plain and simple terms fewer people are losing their policies and being required to pay more for insurance than any time in the past 40 years. And even if they have to spend more for their coverage they will be getting actual insurance not some pure profit policy for the insurance company.

      • Jim Bean

        Because you see, if 4.7 of the of the 9 million enrolled were ones that had, but then lost insurance because of Obamacare, you really only have 4.3 million new enrollees. Its complicated, I know, but I’m confident when I tell you that you are not putting yourself at risk if you trust Jim on this one.

      • Why5ks

        No Jim I wouldn’t even trust you with Ann Coulter’s life or integrity. Because many of those 4,7 million cancellations were able to simply purchase an additional plan from their insurance companies. Not all insurers were crooked like those in Oregon, Missouri and a few other states that tried to scare people into buying jacked up policies before the marketplace opened. Some companies actually did the responsible thing and assisted their customers in purchasing new policies and only directed them to the web sites if they qualified for a subsidy.

      • Nell Webbish

        Except that Jim has it wrong.

        2.3 million of the 4.7 million that received cancellation notices either were automatically enrolled in another plan or had their existing plan extended through 2014. Another couple of million were covered by the extended Medicare. Roughly about 2.1 million used health exchanges to replace their cancelled. Which even if it is included in the 9 million new enrollees, leaves 7 million previously uncovered Americans now covered. Plus that 7 million does not include people newly covered by Medicare due to the ACA expansion.

        And seeing as the enroll continues into April 2014, those numbers will only go up.

      • GOPhater

        Figures DO lie when they come from the poisonous maws and frigid gullets of the Lying Reich Wing sheep..

      • Michael Ryland

        I’m still waiting for an answer. Did you make this all up, as usual? And, by the way, the expression is, “Figures never lie and liars never figure.” I guess you never figured someone would actually challenge you.

        Links don’t post. Paste the following in you browser. You’ll get more info than you know what to do with. (Jon Stewart never mentioned this?)

        Nearly five million people have had their health insurance policies cancelled because of Obamacare. Their coverage didn’t meet the law’s lofty specifications for covered benefits. So they were told they’d have to secure more generous — and more expensive — insurance.

      • Stephen Barlow

        Claiming it was IRREVOCABLY LOST, with no possible replacement is the usual RED Menace LIE. But claiming a death was caused is really a crime against humanity and calls for the immediate genocide of all Republicans.

        I threw that last bit in so YOU might get a feel for what it’s like to hear your spew.

        As far a ‘FACTS’. Let’s see a report about this specific case that hasn’t yet been tainted by the Rovian/Foxl Limbaugh-Coulter-Beck-Boortz-Kevorkian-Breitfart menage a poopoo.

        Complete with a name and a face and a gravestone and an autopsy report saying that the cause of death was the PPACA.Without those reality checks, I stand by the COMPLETE FABRICATION explanation as more factual than the story.

        And remember, Coulter herself claimed it was BCBS.

      • Keith

        Anyone who spends their time on here responding to anything Jim Bean says are clearly wasting their valuable time. Jim is obviously just another clueless right wing nut, and doesn’t deserve your responses. He loves to go back and forth with you spewing his right-wing, anti-Obama, anti-left horse manure, that he is spoon fed from whatever his bullshit sources are. Ignore him please, and maybe one of these days he will finally go away!!! Anyone who defends Ann Coulter is clearly not in their right mind. Kind of like anyone who defends Limbaugh, Beck, Palin, etc., etc., etc.

      • Jim Bean

        You make it sound you like regard this forum as a pep rally for insolent liberals where opposing points of view aren’t welcome. I wouldn’t think there’d be much opportunity for personal growth in that kind of environment.

      • Jim Bean

        IRREVOCABLY LOST? Who claimed that?

      • Tracy Rowe

        Jim, millions lost their coverage because the insurance companies did not want to lose money by bringing grandfathered plans up to ACA standards. Your ilk seem to forget that. Ok you probably don’t forget it so much as you hope the majority are unaware of that little fact.
        I don’t see that the author is accusing the woman of “coming down with a case of irresponsiblity” at all. He makes it pretty clear that he is making the point that Coulter’s whole claim simply doesn’t hold water. Are there any more straws you would like to grasp at?

      • Jim Bean

        Just one and that is to point out that Ann’s accusers have not produced a single shred of objective evidence to support the accusation that she is lying.

      • LadyeCatte

        It’s pure bullshit. If any rightwinger actually had even ONE person that died because of Obamacare, that person would be a celebrity posthumously. You don’t have a single name because none exist.
        Liberals hate Ann because she’s a filthy racist and a liar.

      • Sue Roediger

        Not being able to keep one’s current policy is not the same as losing coverage. If an existing policy doesn’t meet the new standards in ACA the policy holder has only to sign up for a different policy that does meet the requirements. People keep forgetting that there are millions of people who could not get insurance at any price, (due to pre-existing conditions – for example) who now have health insurance for the first time in years. ACA is not perfect…………..but it is way better that what was available before.

      • Brad Fulton

        Turn off the TV, Bean. Your dogmatic ignorance is showing….

      • Sue Roediger

        To me “lost coverage” means a policy cancelled and no new coverage available…………are there many – or any – of those??

      • Jim Bean

        Obie is counting how many people are enrolling in the new Obamacare programs because he promised all these previously uninsured people would now be getting coverage. In his number he is adding the people who had to enroll in exchanges because their plans were canceled with those who enroll because they never had plans before. Then he throws that number out there and lets unsuspecting people believe its represents the success of providing insurance to those who never had it. Obie is lying (though that hardly makes the front page, or even section A these days.)

    Even if you have sepsis, the hospitals won’t let you die. EMTALA regulations state that anyone in a life-threatening situation MUST be treated in the Emergency Department regardless of their ability to pay. Sepsis usually happens when there are other health issues present, especially in geriatric patients.

    If Ms. Coulter’s friend’s sister was so ill that she went septic and died in a day or two, then she might have been too ill to navigate the healthcare system on her own but isn’t that what her sister or Ms. Coulter or any other “friend” should have been helping her with?! Grr. I may not particularly like the ACA in its entirety but it’s better than what we had! Would these folks consider that it might be more human to stop scaring people and start helping them deal with the new reality?

    • suburbancuurmudgeon

      There is a good chance that the woman would have died regardless of medical treatment, depending on the sepsis culprit. I knew a nurse who became septic and died within a few hours, IN the ER! Group A strep is a particularly bad one.

      • Sue Roediger

        I had a staph infection………….. went through healthcare hell even though I have pretty good insurance. I was told later that half the people who get what I had….die. Glad I didn’t know that at the time. I ACA perfect ? NO! but it is way better than no having access to any health insurance.

    • Sandy Greer

      That’s OK. It’s the very ‘unhelpfulness’ of the GOP will be their undoing.

      Dems make mistakes, as do we all. But when Dems err, they do so on the side of HELPING folks.

      GOP (Party of No) is all about the ‘begrudging’. Whether it be gays/healthcare/Food Stamps…you name it. They’re all about denying people something.

      Yes, we CAN. Vote ‘em the Hell outta Dodge.

      • Sam

        Agreed, Sandy Greer! They (GOP) are all about denying everyone who truly needs help, but are all for giving out tax cuts and corporate welfare to themselves and their wealthy friends. The absolutely revolting gall of the GOP and their lobbyist friends makes me believe they are working for the devil himself.

      • John Masters

        Because they have had control of state legislatures long enough to gerrymander the districts to the point that only the craziest of the crazy tea baggers can get elected in the districts. So, there is, unfortunately, no penalty for the intransigence.

      • Thomas Miller

        Because sadly after Gee Dumbya stole the 200 election and the Rove, Cheney, Bushy team took the 51 percent idea to new heights any and every right winger basically has to do this. If they refuse to denounce any leftist policy no matter the good it may cause they are pushed out so fast they don’t know what hit them. Not only that they are banned from and chairmanships and their “base” no longer votes for them. They have made it abundantly clear that they do not work for all of America nor do they care too. Their goal is to enslave all those who disagree with them by means of poverty, incarceration, and unemployment. They would love nothing more than to force their “God” down our throats which is funny on so many levels because I would wager a great deal on the fact that if there is a God that he is sitting somewhere laughing at these fools saying to himself that he does not care to be associated with these knuckleheads.
        Sadly there exists a fair share to the left as well but at least they want to create some sort of safety net for those who get screwed by the right when they pass laws for the country’s largest polluter and job exporters.
        So in a nut shell they do not care what anyone other than their “base” and lobbyist care about and that is extremist views and deregulation so big business can once again run roughshod and fast track us into another great depression because you know there aren’t enough stressed and depressed people struggling in our country right now.

        You have to excuse Jim. Like many Tealiban Republiturds (who are the real RINOs) he suffers from a recently discovered disease. FauxNewsitis is an infection that causes delusionary thinking. In its early stages the mind is unable to handle more than one true fact at a time. Suffers begin believing isolated factoids becomes singularities the explains everything. Since the mind can only process one fact at a time the ability of cognitive processing is suspended. In advanced stages the infection advances it develops into Limbaughidiocy. where the mind no longer is able to even process a singular fact so it resorts to creatively manipulating reality. Once the disease reaches this point the chances for recovery are bleak. The humane thing to do for these persons is make sure there is a good supply of drool rags and depends, the humane thing to do for society is disconnect their internet service.

      • Thomas Miller

        Oh my god is there a vaccination for FauxNewsitis? There are plenty of these fools that I have to deal with on a regular basis and I fear I may be coming down with a case of this nonsense, of course it’s Obama’s fault, oh no wait a sec the vac might kill me so never mind ahhh what are we going to do.

        THAT is how your honesty works.

        More true would be: you piss in diapers now, therefore you must be a Republican.

      • Lori Nicocia

        “I can’t have that” lmao

      • LCrouse

        Typical republican presentation of the “facts”. Only express a snippet of information while disregarding ALL the facts. The complete comment would need to include the fact that Obama tells the truth more than 65% of the time. Included in the remaining 35% is the fact that some are half true and some are responsibly false with some truth while only 2% has been considered actual lies.

      • Jim Bean

        I guess it depends on your perspective and its been an eye opener. Many people here seem to find it admirable that he lying less than half of the time. Still, he tells 10 times more lies each year than I’ve told in 65 so I have a different take on it.

      • Thomas Miller

        My own advice? I never claimed anything worthy of fact checking. Secondly you are speaking as if Obama were the only president that has ever lied about anything. Surely that would be newsworthy. Every politician has lied and most likely lied more than even they can remember but to say that he is the president that has told the most lies. Contrary to what Fox wants everyone out there to believe he has not vetoed to most bills, he has not lied the most, he has not passed the most executive orders and he IS the president of Americans ALL Americans both right and left leaning. If one were to did in and look for the facts of all of the things listed above they will find that most of the things that Obama is accused of doing, republican presidents are the ones that have done the most.exec orders, lies, veto’s etc. Obama isn’t the devil just a historical figure that will go down in history as the first president of America, the first BLACK president! Yes republicans a black president I know it been six years and its still a bad dream

      • Jim Bean

        Yes BLACK!! First and foremost, black. Beyond that, nothing else matters.

      • Ernest Crunkleton

        Well he conveniently used # of pages devoted as his “evidence”, so at least he understands how skew facts.

        I didn’t see a Bush chart, a Scott chart, a McCain chart, a Palin chart, a Limbaugh chart, a Beck chart, a Boortz chart, a 60 Minutes chart… Funny how, when compared to no one else, Obama is ‘such a liar’.

        Here’s an ABSOLUTE truth.

        WMD: false
        6,000+ dead Americans: true

        Here’s a reasonable truth

        Mission Accomplished: absolutely false
        $2 Trillion in war debt: mostly true

        Here’s are LIES never shown on Politifact:

        “Obama pals around with terrorists”
        “Obama is a Kenyan.”
        “Obama is a Muslim.”
        “Obama caused the recession.”
        “The PPACA puts people out of work.”
        The ACA cancelled your insurance, not for profit insurance companies.”

        “The fundamentals of the economy are fine.”

        “Waterboarding is not torture.”

        “I never knew anything about the GW bridge closures (even though it was in the papers for a week)”

Ironically, I fully believe in and support your rights and everyone else’s to think, live, and say what you want no matter how vile disgusting and bigoted it may be but those very right that allow you assholes to say what ever it is you want you wouldn’t dare afford to a black or gay man. Grow the hell up!

      • LadyeCatte

        So.. you felt you had to resort to telling lies on Politifact to convince someone that “the 80 most egregious of Obama’s lies” actually exists? That’s fairly typical of rightwing liars, I guess, so I’m not surprised.

      • Jim Bean

        The fact that you’re afraid to try to confirm whether I’m telling the truth but continue to call me a liar is fairly typical of the moral bankruptcy of Left wingers who promote themselves as moral authorities.

      • Stephen Barlow

        YOUR integrity has been challenged. Stand up and PROVE your credibility.

        BTW. Even if you want to keep your doctor when he cheats you out of PPACA and Medicaid benefits. You can. You just have to pay 100%. in cash.

        Obama NEVER stopped a single soul from getting their CHOICE of medical care.

      • Stephen Barlow

        Nope. We checked. YOU ARE A LIAR.

      • colinmincy

        Jim the fact remains that despite the pages of lies, Politifact’s analysisf all statements (not just the lies) regards Obama to be mstly true. As HermaCain would say you atre comparing applrses and oranges. In all of the statements he makes or charges he makes be it 80, 800, 8,000 pages of lies….Politifact regards him as mostly truthful. Erego your whole argument is debunked using your own source for facts.

      • Jim Bean

        Do you not realize how weak a defense ‘not everything he says is a lie’ is? We’re talking about the POTUS for Pete’s sake!

      • Lori Nicocia

        Are you for real? You’re saying that…now that we have a younger president, who is a Democrat, and oh yeah a man of color…stretching the truth is too shocking to bear? He is a lawyer. He is a politician. Both use creative expression to make their points and always have. Find one U.S. president or any other politician (or lawyer for that matter) in the history of this country who has never been caught in a lie. Find One. Provide evidence. We’ll wait.

      • Jim Bean

        A ‘man of color’. Well whoopie ding!! We can’t speak of him without mentioning that, now can we, because that excuses everything.

      • Lori Nicocia

        As I thought, misdirect and ignore the question. Pathetically predictable.

      • Jim Bean

        We’re are discussing how much lying to the public is too much when done by the POTUS. Do you not even have a clue how insane that is??????

      • Jim Bean

        Sorry. I thought you were misdirecting when you brought race into the discussion of lying. But to the point. You are excusing one liar by referencing other liars. The question to me is, ‘do we want to excuse and normalize lying?’ If not, we should attack it relentlessly and NEVER defend it regardless of skin color.

      • Dan Kennedy

        Well moral bankruptcy is certainly a subject that conservatives are all too familiar with. So how is it moral to vilify liberal ideology when every descent principle the country was built on was a liberal principle. Not to mention that at the heart of true Conservative values we find hate, disdain of freedom for anyone who disagrees, and blatant selfishness

        And because they are a Republican owned and slanted rag, the Tampon Times has NOTHING on file from Rick Scott, and only a few selected bits from any Republican.

        When they rate Ted Cruz as (true) for saying more people are no longer in the labor force, they FORGET to mention that MORE BABY BOOMERS have retired in the last decade than ever before… which explains everything.

      • colinmincy

        Theresa schooled you using your own flawed fact base. I am so mortified for you. Obama’s truths far outweighs his falsehoods accoding to Politifact. Have a seat Jim.

        Not everything he says is a lie. Can’t help but admire him for that.

      • Linda Nissen

        Evidently you can’t read either…What a waste of air!

      • TheMadProfessor

        Hardly. Like just about any politician you care to name, Obama has been less than truthful on many occasions but hardly comes close to ‘holding the record.’ Members of Faux Spews otoh, would rarely recognize the truth if it kicked them in the crotch.

      • Reynard Vulpes

        When I did into what opponents say Obama lied about not only do I find some lying going on by the opposition, but that the circumstances did not allow the President reveal everything often for national security reasons.
        Benghazi was a prime example. State department embassy security relies on certainly agreements with other governments. One is that the local host government supplies all security. Think about that one for a moment.

        I found indications that there was both a communications breakdown and possibly misleading by the Libyan local authorities in charge of perimeter security.

        I suspect the State department. and likely the consulate were being told all was well and help on the way. The ambassador was likely assured security was in place, and that is why he felt emboldened to be there. In addition our security, private was extremely outgunned and out manned, as one can see by the reports coming in during the attack.

        There was much more that was questionable as to what we could and could not do given real world geography, time restraints, and the speed of the attack. Air power could not be used for two reasons. Engagement was too close, the enemy was among our people, nearly face to face. The surrounding area was dense civilian population. No pinpoint accuracy with low peripheral casualties would have been possible.

        All this tactical information, had Obama or Clinton discussed it openly would have aided enemy combatants in later similar attacks. Both would have been in violation of national security law. The would, in a word, then most assuredly been impeachable.

        I’ve been in intelligence work, understand operational limits and capabilities, and the high risk of revealing to an ongoing enemy what our tactics and capabilities are. All that could have been done at Benghazi was in fact done. I was simply FUBAR as such operations can quickly become when a force does not have control of the battle field.

        That IS the case in embassy and consular scenarios. The military power. for security, lies with the locals. Wish something were so against the realities of physics, time, and distance just doesn’t work. And the GOP danced in the blood of those killed.

        You see, they KNOW these things I’m telling you, and used them, not to try and improve matters, but simply as political clubs. They were responsible for funding cutbacks Embassy security, by the way. Do you see them trying to rectify that now? Of course not.

        They will, for political expediency, happily cause events such as this one so they can scream “OBAMA DID IT OBAMA DID IT.” It’s their record to date.

      • Sandy Greer

        Too bad more folks are loathe to see nuances, and afford benefit of doubt, Reynard. They start from a position of active dislike of Obama…and any/everything he says/does is wrong.

        Too, the very same TeaPugs who scream Benghazi and want our president’s head in a noose over a dead Ambassador Stevens would deny a LIVING Ambassador Stevens the right to marry…for being gay.

        But, oh, how the Crocodile Tears flow!

      • Jim Bean

        Nah. Protecting intelligence issues required simply saying, “For national security reasons, we are unable to comment on the details at this time”. Telling people it was something entirely different from what it actually was, was done for the purpose of protecting politically favorability ratings prior to an upcoming election cycle. You are doing the same thing Obama does – underestimating other peoples intelligence or (depending on perspective) overestimating your own.

Whether it’s about abortion, contraceptive, the Healthcare law — oh by the way your side of the isle was once peddling the notion of the Healthcare law sending grandma to die – remember that big old lie.

      • Jim Bean

        Surely you don’t think I’d have said that if I hadn’t already fact checked it? And surely you don’t think I’d take Fox’s word for it? And have you ever thought of taking your own advice? And actually, the biggest lie in media today is the big three plus MSDNC, if consider failure to disclose information a lie.

    Why is she not getting called out on these lies? I just don’t get it. I suppose my theory is she surrounds herself with her like minded people. I dare her to give an interview to someone not affiliated with Fox news.

    • suburbancuurmudgeon

      Because she is insulated by the Fox news bubble. Other entities will call her out, but they will be dismissed as “lamestream media.” They may be lame, but they don’t lie.

    Even if someone has no insurance, they can be seen in the ER, which is where she needed to be if she was dying.

Shortly after his purchase of 5.5 percent of News Corp. voting shares in 2005, Alwaleed gave a speech that made it clear just what he had bought. As noted in The (U.K.) Guardian, Alwaleed told an audience in Dubai that it took just one phone call to Rupert Murdoch – “speaking not as a shareholder but as a viewer,” Alwaleed said – to get the Fox News crawl reporting “Muslim riots” in France changed to “civil riots.”
    He also has changed the outcome of Bengasi blame game, Changing assault on Bengasi annex embassy from Anti-Muslim tape to Al Qaeda terrorist using Fox News.

    medi-cal, california’s medicare program, has offered emergency services coverage for those without insurance for decades no one who resides in california is ineligible for healthcare, there is a vast network in place to prevent that, even if the coverage isn’t always very good i imagine with the implementation of the aca, there are even less ways to fall through the cracks then before… she really should have used a different state for her story…..

  • Calli

    You missed the point where emergency rooms are STILL required to provide healthcare to people who show up regardless of their ability to pay.

  • ttullio

    She’s a liar. I live in California and had no problem signing up at covered California in December (one day after the exchange opened) in fact they were so helpful they advised me of a better plan for me than the one I selected. Also, emergency rooms take all patients regardless of insurance. What I don’t understand is why people refuse to get insurance under the Affordable Care Act. Isn’t that a little like cutting off your nose to spite your face?

    It’s always, “a friend’s sister” or son or brother of friend of a friend. We never get names so we can check for actual facts. And do we think that after she got admitted to a hospital on Thursday they would have just ignored her until she died over the weekend. I’m only sorry we couldn’t have gotten Medicare Part E, E for everyone. All the infrastructure was there already, hospitals, doctors pharmacies. But that would really be socialized medicine and we can’t have that.

    At what point do we finally determine that disseminating false information for political gain is a form of treason? A democratic Republic can not operate under such a cloud, especially one as well orchestrated and funded as the modern day GOP / right wing media appears to be. Politics is a dirty business almost everywhere in the world, but it’s bottom is continually being explored by the corporate GOP in America. It is becoming an embarrassment and a danger to the world. Most GOP politicians, and certainly most right wing “news” people, would be, at minimum, doing prison time in almost any other (civilized) country in the world.

    I think the real travesty in this discussion is that there’s no one at Fox serving in the official capacity of bullpucky detector. If we had encountered a “Coulter” at the office water cooler (and we all have), we could have quickly picked apart her diatribe, reminding her that there’s no Moore’s Law for healthcare, nor is there a Chinese sweatshop like Foxconn to deliver medical services. And then, taking her by the arm, we could go to a computer and google “Blue Cross in California” to show her she was completely wrong on her assertion that they had pulled out of California. We all know how to quickly defuse such an ignorant ideologue when we encounter them in daily life.

    No, the real problem here is that someone we all know is ignorant, and whose stupidity we all know how to refute, is not only given a national audience, but is allowed to go unchallenged. That’s the real travesty (that, and that so many Fox viewers believe her, without question…).

      Fox News was surely started to contribute to the “dumbing down of America” goal, by those who want to be considered the “superior class”, and therefore be the ones to “make all the rules”, or “call all the shots”, for their own gain, which of course would be to the detriment of those considered “dumber and less superior” in class. I just cannot believe that such significant masses of people cannot see, or do not understand what is really going on, which makes me believe it is actually happening to a large percent of our population. The term “ignorance is bliss”, is definitely not going to be true if this “dumbing down” is allowed to continue. Go to hell Fox News and all your promoters and supporters. Hopefully the majority of us who are much more aware, and therefore not ignorant, will be able to eventually rid the country of these type of media forces.

  • Carl

    I do not know if any of this .true but I know they announced today that many of the complaints about the healthcare website still have not been fixed. That is plain incompetence.

    Ann Coulter lied? And in other news; fire is hot, water is wet.

  • Northern Californian

    Just for the record, I have Blue Shield, along with 3.3 other Californians. Blue Shield also participates in our state ACA web marketplace, Covered California.

  • blufftonboy

    Ann Coulter has a friend?

  • MLR

    Anybody who istens to this crazy woman is even crazier than she is. Sometimes I wonder if she really is that ignorant or she just plays one on TV to make money off the ignorant conservative base Maybe both? Who knows and I really don’t care.

    • Tracy Rowe

      Actually, I can tell you for a fact that neither she nor Limbaugh really believe a thing they say. Their motivation is ratings, money and notoriety. A while back, Fox network tried to come up with a show as a counterpoint to Jon Stewart. You may have seen the one or two eps that actually made it to air. Someone I know very well worked for them as a writer for about two weeks (it’s Hollywood …you take the jobs you can get) He was so disgusted he walked away from some pretty good money. He also told me in no uncertain terms that their asshattery is a complete sham, just an act.

  • Sandy Greer

    Ann Coulter. Geez! Hard to believe a woman could be so hard-hearted.

    A sister in California & her husband both own small businesses. Insurance was killing them; 5-6 years ago she said they could barely afford it.

    She went to Covered California. They were paying $685 per month; new cost is $334. Savings of $4000 per year! Better coverage, too.

    The old plan (Blue Cross) only covered hospitalization for that $685 per month. Office visits, lab tests, prescriptions: ALL were their own to pay. She said the entire 10 years they were with Blue Cross…Blue Cross never had to pay a dime, because neither ever was hospitalized, LOL

    So yeah; they’re pretty happy with Covered California, and the ACA

    Ann Coulter is a vile, disgusting person !!! Why is taking care of the citizens of this country wrong ??? I am a tax-paying citizen of this country and I want my tax dollars to go to take care of the USA………not more money for the Rich, but to help pick up the poor…………..who are poor because of the deregulation of business, all the jobs that were taken away from them and sent over seas, cheap labor…..pennies on the dollar………more profits for the people who are already rich, then they hide their money over seas……tax evaders …..then turn around and blame the poor for being poor, and needing food to feed their children !! Then the GOP cuts the SNAP program….. It’s a disgusting vicious cycle that will never end unless we get the nut-job GOP/teabaggers out of office and stop the Obstructionism they have been causing and move this country in a forward motion !!!

  • Wade Rand

    Why does anyone listen to her? She is nothing but a nasty loudmouth with no ethics or morals and a pundit of the GOP>

  • akcita

    Wow, what a pathetically sourced narrative…I might be worried about a libel suit if I were the author.

    Contriving a bunch of counter-tropes and then implying that these concoctions make her a statements “A lie” is rather foolish.

    On the account of her friend’s sister’s death…all you did was find a website? Do you know if they are still selling insurance in California in 2014? Couldn’t do the journalistic research in favor of just venting your spleen?

    I am not a fan of MS. Coulter, but he bombast and BS is much better sourced and better delivered than your own drivel…

  • Emperors clothes

    I am from CA and my daughter and SIL were able to sign up for ACA after 6 weeks of trying. Finally got the cards and tried to find a provider. Three hours on the phone and 27 providers down, not ONE of them would take it. They have all opted out.

  • FD Brian

    I have BC/BS and I can tell you that in October I was notified they would have to cancel my policy, but they allowed me to select 11 different plans, they even had selected one for me so that it would automatically switch over to that plan. Then Obama let people keep their old plans and BC/BS went and reissued the old policies without any problem, it was all automatic, so Ann is a complete liar from what I experienced. Look on my twitter page and you can see what BC/BS offered that complied with the ACA and the cost associated with those policies.

    • Sue Roediger

      wow, actual facts !!! Thank you !!!!!

  • Progressives Rule

    Plus the woman would have had what, 90 days notice to get another policy? I suspect Ann’s a lying beyatch on this story. She gave not one single detail in it. Sadder fact is she and that weasel Carlson enjoyed putting that lie out there. Pathetic!

  • White True Patriot

  • Cherrie Walker

    I was a Californian and my health insurance is still through California. I still have Blue Cross Blue Shield in California and it had gone done. Ann Coulter has always been a liar and still a liar. She is an imp and will go straight to hell for lying to the masses!

  • Cherrie Walker

    Bush and Chaney talked so much bull crap and lied about so many things including creating wars that could have been avoided that we could not afford and we financed from the beginning. Lies about the Recession as he told the American People to go out to spend and two mornings later Bush was forced to tell the truth that we were indeed in a bad Recession. Lies about Katrina and the facts. Lies about scandals and other Benghazi’s. Lies, lies, as the exchange of big money to wash another’s back to endorse this prescription drug and that large corporations over sea’s deal! The lies and scandals over the stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction and the money we paid to look for it and the committee to further discuss and research the phoney matter. The scandals about the Federal Prison created by Bush to keep our Enemy Combatants that’s was to be resolved during his era. The scandals where the banks, Wall Street and Real Estate created and distorted old obsolete rules & regulation to make money and rob citizens, especially the most vulnerable to make millions. One day you old racist hypocrites are going to look up and no one will have nothing. Why? The weak, the poor, the struggling middle class with morals and the rich who are still humane will say enough and the civil war you seek, and you weak a*s selfish ignorant fools continue to refer to as lazy and other names among many many other things you idiots imagine

  • Cherrie Walker

    You are a stupid ignorant evil a*s racist imp that will soon meet your leader, satan. Every one knows, including all of us who Minorities that Allen West is a quack! You like him, because he is free loader and an idiot like you! The communist I see are fools like you and those who sell this country out to make a quick buck as well as those who do not pay their fair share in taxes to support this country and hide thei money in off shore accounts. You are just poor white trash who think by putting down an educated intelligent progressive thinking Black Male who is millions of miles ahead of your stinking butt you, have to put them down. I have no respect for no idiots like you! The world hears and sees all and know America is still filled with ignorant a*s racists whites who we threw out some of our jails, streets and countries some centuries ago. They are still hateful uncivilized maggots.

    • White True Patriot

      Our Final Solution is going to take care of lowlife trash such as you once and for all. God created America for WHITES ONLY and niggers to be our slaves. Thankfully todays Republicans will return us to those traditional values and God will love and bless us again.
