From a reader living in Minnesota comes this bit of information about robocalls from Mike Huckabee encouraging folks to ask their doctors about the impact of “ObamaCare” on their practice:
Though resident in Winona, MN myself, Your Correspondent received but minutes ago a rather curious “robocall” from Mike Huckabee on the ameche, urging seniors and disabled people on Medicare to ask their doctors about the impact of ObamaCare (as in health-care reform) on
their practice–and expecting them to say such is “hurting” them.
The Greater Call here to urge a repeal of ObamaCare if Our Dear Nation is to be saved.
Making matters worse:
*There was no live operator prompt before the call asking permission to play the message beforehand;
*Mr. Huckabee’s voice appears to have been sped up, and deliberately (the better to distract and confuse); and
*There’s no disclosure “up front” as to who’s behind the robocalls in question, as the laws require.
No doubt we can expect conservatives to try to muddy the debate over Rep. Paul Ryan’s plan to end Medicare as we know it (a plan that’s proven to be extremely unpopular nationally) in an attempt confuse voters and distract from the fact that Congressional Republicans voted nearly unanimously to turn Medicare into a coupon system.
