Dems Raising Money Off Palin's "Death Panel" Comments


The Republican strategy to defeat health insurance reform is simple: poison the debate with lies and then drown us out by yelling and screaming as loud as they can.

Now, Sarah Palin is outrageously claiming that Americans "would have to stand in front of Obama's 'death panel'" to receive care. While Palin's attack is a complete fabrication, the GOP is closing ranks to defend these outright lies. Over the weekend, former Speaker Newt Gingrich stood by Palin's bizarre "death panel" accusation on national TV.

But this is how we'll beat Palin and Gingrich's shameless fear-mongering - by every one of us spending every day aggressively fighting back with the facts. That's why the DCCC has put together Health Care Fact Check Cards debunking GOP myths on health insurance reform with the real facts.

We've seen the lengths that Republicans and their powerful special interests will go to stop reform. Busing in violent mobs to disrupt town hall meetings; Flooding the airwaves with outrageous lies and misleading ads; and now even using swastikas to compare Democrats to Nazis courtesy of Rush Limbaugh.

More than ever, President Obama needs grassroots Democrats like you to get the real truth out before the Republican lies get accepted as fact.
