Politifact is calling foul on a recent attack ad by Sen. Kay Hagan's (D-NC) reelection campaign that attacks House Speaker Thom Tillis (R-NC) for calling Obamacare a "great idea."
The ad, released a week earlier, clips Tillis saying in a radio interview that Obamacare is a great idea. The problem is, as Politifact noted, that the attack ad only included part of what Tillis said. He actually said that Obamacare is a "great idea that can't be paid for."
Tillis has, nevertheless, taken hits by his opponents in the North Carolina Republican primary over the remarks.
Politifact noted that prior to making the "great idea" line Tillis discussed ways to repeal the bill. Politifact ruled that the ad focuses on a "severely edited quote" and said the ad was "Mostly False."
