Remember these facts when neoconservatives rant about the Affordable Care Act:

Because neoconservatives lied to the American public about Iraq being behind the 9/11 terrorist attack and having weapons of mass destruction, billions of dollars and tens of thousands of lives have been lost. How many people died as a direct result of President Barack Obama lying about people being able to keep substandard insurance policies? Answer: None.

Because neoconservatives refused to regulate banks and Wall Street, billions of dollars were lost and tens of thousands of Americans lost their savings, pensions and homes. How many people have lost their savings, pensions or homes because of the Affordable Care Act? Answer: None.

So what is the Republican and Tea Party answer? They vote to allow insurance companies to keep selling substandard policies, arguably making things worse.

With this record of lying and incompetence, how can anyone listen to these fools?
