Right-wingers distort Warren Buffett’s comments to falsely cast him as an opponent of Obamacare
Billionaire Warren Buffett (above) is a strong supporter of Obamacare and said just last week that any suggestion to the contrary is “outrageous…100 percent wrong…totally false.”
But certain elements of the right-wing noise machine are quoting a Republican lawmaker to the effect that Buffett recently expressed opposition to Obamacare.
Even such semi-respectable conservative outlets as National Review and the Weekly Standard are misrepresenting Buffett’s thoughts on the matter.
These and other righty media are taking remarks made by Buffett more than three years and placing them in an entirely fictional context. Of course, the gullible saps who read these this junk are likely to believe it.
