In the past two weeks, GOP Assembly members have sent mailings out on what appears to be the state's dime to their constituents about health insurance. Only, they don't direct those people to CoveredCA.com to sign up. Instead, they send them to their own astroturf version with the url CoveringHealthCareCA.com.

On their version, there are links to negative articles and twisted messages intended to sour people on signing up for health insurance before they ever land at the official health exchange site.

This is yet another of the reasons the current incarnation of the Republican Party is little more than a political oozing sore. There is probably a downside to trying to kill off your own voters to score a momentary political point, but let's just say the members of the party brain trust in my state could meet in a closet and still have enough room for the vacuum and boxes of Christmas decorations.


Daily Kos: California GOP creates fake health care website to discourage constituents from obtaining insurance
How low can they go? Back under a rock I suppose. Tricking people in order to prevent them from obtaining healthcare. That's about as pretty ****ing low as anyone can go.

Screw the Daily KOSsack and it's psychophantic readership.

Liberals dont like the truth. Period.

FYI when you go to that informational web site there is a nice button link right there on the first page that takes you directly to the Kommiefornia Onumbnut exchange.

More Liberal lies to cover for the POS Obamacare from their POSTUS Dear Leader.

So there is an obvious link to the real page - their page informs you that the security is flawed etc...

Petty, but you overstate the evil.


Let me guess, it is okay to lie about keeping plans and doctors?

All the GOP has to fight back with is co-intel agitprop dirty tricks. What else are they going to do? Come up with a plan to provide insurance for 40 million Americans?

Still firmly entrenched in the McCarthy era, I see.
Good luck with that.

When you find a web site with a link to "the truth", you'll let us all know, won't you?

Meanwhile, I'm happy with informed opinions.

No surprise here. They've got nothing else--no legislative victories to point to, not a single idea presented in the last five years, no jobs bills, nothing. What else can they do but continue their long running obstruction/disinformation campaign? It's all they've got.

The Democrat snow job has been very, very effective.
