At least when you’re shamelessly hawking a health care disaster.

More conservatives promptly called B.S. and laid into the progressive propaganda machine:

LOL their side's main propaganda site (@thinkprogress) has been reduced to absurdly claiming that ObamaCare is a giant middle class tax cut.

— Kevin Eder (@keder) July 5, 2012

When losing, spin. Madly. MT @keder: LOL, @thinkprogress has been reduced to absurdly claiming ObamaCare is a middle class tax cut.

Hey @thinkprogress, you really take the ‘think’ out of progress

— A.S. Bland (@MeSoBland) July 5, 2012

Dear @thinkprogress. It seems you failed 1st grade math. Increasing something means it didn't decrease. I'm sorry #MathIsHard for you.

— Andrew Staroska (@OHCONSERVATISM) July 5, 2012

The left's capacity for sophistry, spin, delusion, and putting out weapons grade BULLSHIT knows no bounds. Looking at you, @thinkprogress.

— Ken Gardner (@kesgardner) July 5, 2012

@kesgardner There must be 1 guy @ThinkProgress paid to change his name to "The Middle Class" who's getting a tax cut. @keder @twulitzerprize

@kesgardner @ThinkProgress wouldn't know truth if it latched on them like a Candiru fish @keder @twulitzerprize

— ن IllegallyChristian (@TalonsPoint) July 5, 2012

If @ThinkProgress believes that Obamacare is a tax cut then they must also believe the 15+ trillion in debt is a surplus.

Hey @thinkprogress, ask my friend if his employer dropping coverage, due to #obamacare—while his wife is fighting cancer, is a ‘tax cut’

— A.S. Bland (@MeSoBland) July 5, 2012

What’s wrong, ThinkProgress? Suddenly you don’t care for inconvenient truths?
