More unvarnished truth:

"[Republicans] say it's a government takeover of health care - a big lie, just like Goebbels. You say it enough, you repeat the lie, you repeat the lie, you repeat the lie, and eventually people believe it. Like blood libel. That's the same kind of thing. The Germans said enough about the Jews and the people believed it and you had the Holocaust..."

From Representative Steve Cohen, who has committed the grievous sin of breaking the Washington code of "civility"--which does not, mind you, prohibit Republicans from calling for "Second Amendment remedies" to eliminate their opponents, but does enjoin Democrats from citing facts that buttress their arguments.
