Why they're crazy

See Firedoglake here.

Conservative media sources, including Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, and Matt Drudge, have been persistently misleading people about health care reform proposals. As a result their listeners, as the experience of a Georgia couple illustrates, have become victims of unjustified fear and needless anxiety, fed by the false impression that the federal government is planning to deny or ration their health care. [Link added.]

These conservative media efforts are provably dishonest, but despite having the facts repeatedly corrected and the distortions denounced by numerous experts, the conservative media continue to repeat the false information, leaving those Americans who rely on the sources even more anxious and confused.

Of course the health insurance companies are behind this whole phenomenon. See here.
