The lying liars



There are many lies from which to choose. Joan Walsh points out one Republican lie about "breast panels."

Republicans claim bureaucrats will deny mammograms to women under 50 thanks to Obama's push for reform.

It's an enormous lie. Various government advisory panels have been trying to ratchet up the age for women to begin routine mammograms (from 40 to 50) going back to the Clinton administration through the George W. Bush administration and now, again, in the Obama administration. I'm not sure which side is right; I know doctors and breast cancer advocates on both sides of the issue. All I know is the recent recommendations have nothing to do with so-called Obamacare.
