Must be Election (horse race) Season. MSM busy "debunking" DEM claims...

Gotta keep the advertising dollars flowing... with no horse race, no bonuses and overtime. Election season commercials are almost as expensive as Super Bowl commercials...

The latest... from WAPO no less...

Where are the debunked GOP lies and nonsense?

The Pinocchio Test

Murray tweeted that if Senate Republicans win control of the Senate, they plan to end Social Security and Medicare.

This is yet another example in which Democrats strain to conjure up a nonexistent GOP plan regarding Social Security and Medicare. Murray earns Four Pinocchios.

1. Um Ron Johnson?. Do they even read their own paper. Or just pull everything out of their ass

Were they the same ones telling us that Roe would never be overturned?Will they ever admit they were completely dead wrong on that? Goddamn liberal left-wing media. Not

2. they address that in the story.

Kessler basically says comments by Scott or Johnson don't equal a GOP plan.

I'm 100% convinced that reporting is 100% directed by the almighty dollar.

5. I'd like to think that SS and Medicare are 100% radioactive and untouchable...

But yeah, sometimes I worry.

SS is already underfunded and the benefits are 50% too small... we need to make the program more generous NOT talk about reducing benefits.

7. No don't think that. They would get rid of it if they thought the right people would suffer.

Donít forget. They donít care like normal humans to do. That article was revisionist history I remember when they were trying to pass Medicare.

3. If the Republicans didn't denounce RoJo's plan

Or Rubio's/Scott's plans, That means they support it. That is how the MSM treats Democrats whenever someone from the Squad or Mancin/Synema says something controversial.

6. This is pretty weak sauce, Post

Who are you going to believe? Rick Scott? Mitch McConnell? Ron Johnson? Their actual statements or their after-the-fact "Oh heavens to Betsy, no! We didn't mean it like that at all!" I got two words for the trustworthiness of Republican denials: Bull and shit.
