John Boehner doesn’t care how obvious his lies are

House Minority Leader John Boehner recently told reporters that he hadn’t been able to find a single American (other than a politician) who is in favor of a public health care option. This despite the fact that a majority of Americans are in favor of the public option. So in response, here is a video of someone who found over 1,800 Americans in Boehner’s Ohio congressional district, some of whom had even tried to contact Boehner to voice their support for the public option. Makes you wonder who Boehner is spending all his time talking to.

Be sure to watch until the end, for the hilarious interview with a teabagger.

UPDATE: According to the Center for Responsive Politics, Boehner has received more money from the health industry than any other member of Congress. They say money talks, but in this case it is talking so loud that Boehner can’t hear anyone else.

    The teabagger is right. I get my opinions from my cat, from how my coffee grounds settle in my cup, and sometimes from subtle messages sent to me from Celia Cruz in heaven.

    In Boehner’s opinion, he hasn’t found a single American in favor of a public option regardless of whether he actually did or not. This is why it’s hard to argue or debate with these people…

    This begs the question, why does Boehner think he can get away with saying something so obviously untrue? The answer, of course, is that he knows the mainstream media will let him.

    It’s Exhibit #219 against a “liberal media.”

    Just this past weekend, I watched a newscast that sent an investigative reporter to Ohio to see if HE could find a single person who was in favor of Healthcare. He found hundreds who were actually carrying signs and chanting that they wanted Health care. Some were interviewed by the reporter, and said they had even contacted Boener’s office so he could talk to them, personally. They never got a reply from Boener or any of his staff.

    It is really a ridiculous thing for Boener to say, as it would be obvious that now that there are 60 million people without health insurance, I can’t imagine one of them willing to turn down health insurance. Has anyone learned that Boener is supported by private health care insurance corporations? This would seem a most likely circumstance for his refusal to honor the needs of human citizens rather than our corporate citizens.
