Subject: Sarah Palin’s Facebook lies
A lot of folks use Facebook to stay in touch with friends and family. For Sarah Palin, it’s a great way to spread lies about health insurance reform.
A few months back, Palin took to Facebook to declare that health reform would create "death panels," and drive private insurers out of business — and nonpartisan fact-check sites and the independent Congressional Budget Office debunked those lies.
But that hasn’t stopped Sarah Palin. She’s back with a new Facebook note claiming that reform will raise costs on families and drive up deficits. Unfortunately for her, even the conservative "Tax Foundation" says those claims are false.
So we’re calling out Sarah Palin, and taking to Facebook to debunk her lies on the very same pages she’s using to spread them.
We’ve put together a short Facebook note cataloging just some of Sarah Palin’s many distortions and the facts that prove her wrong. But we need your help to "share" the note and make sure she doesn’t get away with her outrageous lies.
If Sarah Palin wants to spread lies on Facebook, we’ll call her out in the very same place. And when thousands of folks share our note and expose her lies, it will be clear that those who lie about reform will be held accountable — no matter where they spread their misinformation.
The more we push back with the truth, the more Sarah Palin and others like her will have to think twice before they promote lies, and the less they’ll be able to derail progress.
Even if you don’t have a Facebook account, you can still help us call out Sarah Palin. Visit Call ’em Out: Sarah Palin to watch our video detailing her lies and to call Palin’s political organization and say, "stop lying."
Rising health care costs are crushing American families and squeezing small businesses. Reform will reign in costs and cut the deficit in the long run — that’s why it’s so important, and why Sarah Palin’s lies are so malicious.
We’re not letting it stand. We’re calling Sarah Palin out:
Thanks for helping us set the record straight about reform,
Jen O’Malley Dillon
