Bleeding Heartland: Another day, another lie from Steve King

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

Conservative activists gathered in Washington yesterday to protest
Democratic-backed health care reform proposals. As usual,
right-wingers are completely wrong about the substance of the bills,
crying "socialism" when the real problem is not enough
government-backed competition for private insurers. Former House
Majority Leader Dick Armey, a key figure in the "tea party" movement,
claims to believe that "The largest empirical problem we have in
health care today is too many people are too overinsured." Anyway,
when ill-informed right-wingers are causing a spectacle inside the
beltway, you can count on finding Representative Steve King (IA-05)
nearby. Hey, it's been almost three weeks since national media last
paid attention to his unfounded allegations. So King gets on MSNBC
yesterday and falsely claims that the House Democrats' bill would
cancel every private insurance contract in America. You can watch the
clip on the Iowa Democratic Party's site.
