why truth in advertising laws should apply to politics: health care edition

Several readers send me stories on the renewed US wingnut lie campaign against universal, single-payer health insurance, aka Canada Sucks. I just can't follow the blow-by-blow. Although the heat and the lies have escalated sharply in recent months, it's been going on for years - decades - and I burnt out on it long ago.

I'm glad the Canadian blogosphere is on it, though. Here's something important to read: The real story on Canadian Health Care Hater Shona Holmes, by Ross, The Gazetteer.

Also, don't forget to circulate this everywhere: "Debunking Canadian Health Care Myths", with more links and my commentary here.
