Actually, it’s EXACTLY like these claims can’t be “VERY EASILY searched on Google and immediately proven true” — however, many (most? all?) can be very easily searched and proven misleading at best and outright FALSE at worst. But not everyone has 40-hour days to fact-check a 10,000-word tome. You would think a busy Wall Street hedge fund lawyer, of all people, would understand that and know how to back up their argument with some evidence (ie. links) — or at least provide even a few as a courtesy to their readers. A brief opinion piece might be one thing, but this is something entirely different. So, just to get the ball rolling, below is a link (or two) that directly refutes her very first attempt at a salient point: “First, I researched…I looked at analyses on left-leaning blogs that have long advocated for universal health care to see what they thought, sites I respect and whose authors I have relied on for years for their basic objectivity within their admitted points of view. And I could find none who believed Sanders’ numbers added up.” Really? Then she’s either a moron who doesn’t know how to use the internet or a disingenuous hack trying to mislead people. Or both. Because the very people who have been advocating for universal healthcare beg to differ. This is the tip of a very large iceberg of misleading smears. But, hey, what else is a “non-hit-piece hit piece” released on the eve of the most consequential primary by someone who gets paid to defend the very institutions that crashed the economy in 2008 for?
