Another swing and a miss for Minnesota’s most coverable congresswoman, according to the Pulitizer Prize-winning fact-checkers from the St. Petersburg Times.
This time, it’s Rep. Bachmann statement that the House health care bill “says specifically that people can’t purchase private health insurance after a date certain.” Truth-O-Meter verdict: “Pants on fire.”
For those of us keeping score, this is the seventh time Politifact has checked out a Bachmann claim, and the seventh time it’s been found false. Four of those seven have been rated “pants on fire” for high level of distortion.
But don’t worry Michele; George Will says all is forgiven because you make Democrats mad. Moral relativism, indeed.
