Republicans go 'nuclear' with health reform distortionsThen on tonight’s show, she did it again. Addressing the out-right blatant lies & outright hypocrisy over the use of reconciliation, she paid particular attention to Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch. John McCain and Chuck Grassley played supporting roles:
March 1: DNC chair Tim Kaine talks with Rachel Maddow about the lengths to which Republicans will go in their opposition to reforming health care in America, including a disinformation campaign on the American public to conflate the reconciliation process with "the nuclear option."
Senators abandon honor to block health reform
March 2: Rachel Maddow takes Orin Hatch and other Republicans to task for lying about reconciliation and denying their own voting records on the matter in order to obstruct the passage of health reform.
