Fake News, Fake Nurse, Fake Endorsement meet Fake Town Hall
Everybody needs to watch this video in its entirety to believe it.
On Friday morning, Congresswoman Lauren Underwood’s congressional Twitter was tweeting about a meeting where Underwood was going to discuss issues in Crystal Lake.
But no location or website was given in the tweets.
The congressional Twitter ID retweeted the live stream link about 4 minutes into the town hall, and I viewed it through Twitter.
It didn’t take long to see through this event being nothing more than a staged and scripted infomercial for Underwood. And then her smirking throughout the video but especially in the 1st 15-20 minutes confirmed she is trying to fool 14th congressional district voters again.
Just like she did last year when her campaign transformed the policy administration nurse into a patient-care nurse at a doctor’s office in staged commercials.
But it wasn’t only until the very end of the live stream did the final proof of the lack of authenticity of this “town hall” was revealed.
It was hosted by Indivisible NW IL, which is based in Crystal Lake.
“Fool me once…”
Please don’t take my word for it. Watch the entire 48 minute video released by Now This News and judge for yourself:
I know Underwood’s socialist allies are tweeting how beautiful this meeting in Crystal Lake today was, with Underwood meeting with “real people” discussing important issues.
Another part of the con, I mean script.
These “real people” asked no tough questions of Underwood, and with one exception, all of the participants sounded too well rehearsed.
All the questions and responses were scripted, including bringing up all of the legislation Underwood is working concerning health care.
And her dovetail into Veterans’ health care legislation, which no one asked, more proof this video was more political than anything else. Had to get that part of the script covered especially going into the Veterans Day weekend.
Since the end of October, Underwood has really been pushing her “5-point plan” on prescription drug pricing, which she first unveiled on October 18.
While I haven’t had the opportunity to write a discerning article on her plan, in the past week between her feature opinion piece in the Chicago Tribune on November 1 and her media tour, she is really pushing this as she prepares for the 2020 elections.
But even with prescription drugs, she is using a familiar phrase which for Underwood, is another lie:
“The good news is that Congress can take immediate action to lower drug costs, and there’s bipartisan agreement on many of the ideas for how to do it. In order to solve this problem, I’m proposing a five-point plan to reduce prescription drug costs for Illinois families.”Lauren Underwood, Chicago Tribune with emphasis added
Here was my immediate response in Twitter last month when she unveiled her plan:
Any “bipartisan” plan will have real bipartisan support, including a significant number of Republican cosponsors to all of the components of legislative solutions, which her plan has uses six current bills in Congress.
The centerpiece legislation, which Underwood says in the video, is H.R. 3, Lower Drug Costs Now Act of 2019, which currently has no Republican cosponsors. Yet 86 Democrats cosponsor the legislation.
Think H.R. 3 is heading down the same partisan legislation path of passing the House like H.R. 1 (For the People Act), H.R. 5 (Equality Act), H.R. 6 (American Dream and Promise Act) and H.R. 9 (Climate Action Now).
I genuinely believe the goal of more affordable prescription drug prices is bipartisan, but the legislative components of her plan are not. I’m guessing she is using the 13 Republican cosponsors of H.R. 965 and saying that is her bipartisan support for all 6 legislative components of her plan.
See how Underwood’s claims of “bipartisanship” lies work?
Well, at least at the faux town hall she didn’t try to call her plan “bipartisan”.
Hopefully, the Republican candidates for Congress will weigh-in on Underwood’s 5-part plan, or her statements in this staged town hall meeting hosted by the socialist organization Indivisible.
Remember the socialist agenda when Underwood states about halfway through the infomercial how she is committed to protecting the Affordable Care Act because it is popular with the American people, yet does not mention that over half of the Democratic caucus in the House, excluding her, are cosponsoring the Medicare-for-All legislation, H.R. 1384.
Which proves how scripted the questions were. Don’t you think at least one of the participants would have asked something like “…wouldn’t the situation improve with Medicare-for-All?”
And to all voters, please continue to be discerning as Underwood, the Democrats and their leftist allies step up their efforts to reelect Underwood through dishonorable lies and distortions of the truth.
