of course, that's the minor one compared to the appalling lie about bankrupt businesses, but there's no defense for that one so I can see why you ignored it.
Well, first of all, I picked one of the two examples that *you* bolded. I chose the one I knew the most about and could most easily explain.
Would it surprise you if I told you that I can explain the bankruptcy statement too and that the article you posted was arguably as misleading and most likely more intentionally deceptive than Ryan's statement?
Edit: I just re-read the article and I no longer think that it was intentionally deceptive.
Obamacare’s fix for an American health care system that the federal government long ago broke, is to give the federal government far more power over American health care; that its solution to escalating health costs is to mandate greater health benefits (and, hence, higher costs); and that its solution to the pricey overreliance on pre-paid health plans — offered by insurance companies in lieu of real insurance — is to have the government require Americans to buy those pre-paid health plans under penalty of law.
