Graham-Cassidy: The Most Dishonest Senate Bill of All-Time?

By September 21, 2017No Comments

As Senators Bill Cassidy and Lindsey Graham make the rounds attempting to prop up support for their version of the least popular bill in three decades, it seems they’ve managed to achieve another important measure: the most dishonest Senate bill of all-time. They continue to lie about their bill, which all experts agree would raise costs, cut coverage, eliminate protections for pre-existing conditions and gut Medicaid. They’ve spread so much false information, in fact, we can hardly keep up. Just how many times have they been called out for lying?
