Simple-because they heard it on Fox news. They could be told that Christmas is coming in November this time around, but as long as it was broadcast by Fox news-well, it must be true.


They're lying...it's a habit they can't break...been doing it so long now it's a reflex with them.

Political opportunism. As you might know there are many different forms of UHC around the world. Single payer systems like in Canada and the UK or mixed systems like in the Netherlands or Belgium. No system is perfect so naturally countries constantly try to improve and fine tune their health care system. This is seized upon by the deceitful demagogic American right wing fringe to argue countries are turning away from universal health care which couldn't be further from the truth. There's not one country in the world that has universal health care that would consider going back to the anarchy of the "free" market. Any politician proposing such nonsense would effectively end his or her political career. Once again the American right tells a easily debunked lie and expects its audience to simply be too uninformed to figure out how dishonest their claims are

My dentist charged me $12 for a single REGULAR 4x6 PHOTO (and I mean REGULAR photo, NOT x-ray), is that wrong?
