Tell a lie big enough…

Joseph Goebbels made the statement

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Lie number one: Ryan failed to pass a farm aid bill.  The truth is that Ryan and the House passed a $383 million measure to give aid to cattle and sheep ranchers and to provide up to 75% reimbursement for farm losses.  It was the Democrat lead senate that went on recess before passing the bill to be sent to the the president.

Lie number two: Ryan guts medicare.  The truth is that the Obama administration takes $700 billion from medicare to be applied to Obamacare.  Ryan, on the other hand, seeks to shore up Medicare, provide vouchers so medicare recipients can have a choice, and allow those younger than 55 options outside of the Medicare system.  This does not gut medicare.

Shall I go on?
