One in Three Hurt by ACA. Reid Calls Them Liars. Biden Says No Apologies.

From a Rasmussen poll:

Thirty-three percent (33%) now say their insurance coverage has changed because of the new law, up a point from January  and the highest finding since last July. 
Seventy-four percent (74%) of those who have health insurance rate their coverage as good or excellent. 
Just 14% of all voters now say they personally have been helped by the law, down from 16% in January. Thirty-three percent (33%) say they have been hurt by the law, up from 29% earlier this year and the highest negative rating since April 2013. Fifty percent (50%) say it has had no impact on them.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (he of the party that has compassion, looks out for the little guy and the middle class. He of the party of science and logic and reason. He of the sane party) has a different opinion.
“Despite all that good news, there’s plenty of horror stories being told. All are untrue, but they’re being told all over America.”
He identifies the Koch Brothers as a source of these lies, calls them un-American also. Lies, damn lies and the Koch Brothers?

So if all the stories being told about the ACA are lies, why bother apologizing?
“I think we should not apologize for a single thing,” Biden said, calling on Democrats to tell voters, ”this is who we are. This is who we stand for. This is what we do.”
This is who we are: You can't keep your plan. This is who we stand for: You can't keep you doctor. This is what we do: premiums will decline.

And if you disagree? You are a liar, and un-American. The party of science, compassion, logic and reason. Right.
