Obama: Healthcare critics make outlandish claims
Edited on Sat Aug-08-09 06:14 AM by steven johnson
Sarah Palin's wacko accusations of a 'death panel' in the healthcare reform plan show how far out of touch the GOP is. I don't think the problem is a "downright evil" legislation but "downright stupid" Republicans.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama accused his critics on Saturday of resorting to "outlandish rumors" and "misleading information" aimed at derailing his efforts to overhaul the $2.5 trillion U.S. healthcare system.

"Some have been using misleading information to defeat what they know is the best chance of reform we have ever had," Obama said, adding it was critical for Americans to have all the facts as they meet their lawmakers in their home districts.

Obama's aides and fellow Democrats have charged that protests staged at some "town hall"-style meetings held by congressional Democrats have been orchestrated by Republican- and industry-backed groups and conservative talk-show hosts, and are calling for a more civil dialogue.
