Majority of Americans Who Are Not Max Baucus Know a "Scare Tactic" When They See It

Baucus is apparently not as smart as the majority of American people, who in a new Bloomberg poll show that they know bullshit when they see it.

So Baucus capitulated on all those Republican lies in his debacle. Death panels, abortion, illegals, the whole shebang, all so he couldn't get any Republican support.

Baucus is apparently not as smart as the majority of American people, who in a new Bloomberg poll show that they know bullshit when they see it.

* Sixty-three percent said the claim that "death panels of government officials would decide how much medical care ailing individuals will receive" is a scare tactic, versus 30% who said it’s legit.

* Fifty-nine percent said the claim that "health care would be rationed" is a scare tactic, versus 35% who said it’s legit.

* Fifty-two percent said the claim that "health care would become socialized medicine" is a scare tactic, versus 43% who said it’s legit.

* Sixty-one percent said the claim that "government money would be used to pay for abortions" is a scare tactic, versus 33% who said it’s legit.

* Fifty-eight percent said the claim that "government money would pay for health care for illegal immigrants" is a scare tactic, versus 37% who said it’s legit.
