Scare tactics


altObama, Aug. 12, 2009

"Every time we come close to passing health insurance reform, the special interests fight back with everything they've got. They use their influence. They use their political allies to scare and mislead the American people. They start running ads. This is what they always do. We can't let them do it again. Not this time. Not now."


Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.), May 20, 2011

"While Democrats do nothing to save Medicare from collapse, they have tried to scare seniors by mischaracterizing real solutions to strengthen and save the program and using those efforts as a political weapon."
