FACT CHECKING SPANBERGER AD: 4 PINOCCHIOS
Glen Allen, VA — Today, the Washington Post Fact Checker rated the vote cited in the Spanberger ad on pre-existing conditions 4 Pinocchios — the most dishonest rating they give. They describe statements like these “Whoppers.”
“This is the second time fact checkers have had to call out Team Spanberger for lying about Rep. Brat’s record on healthcare. Spanberger is losing, she’s desperate, and she will say anything at this stage of the campaign. What she won’t say is that her plan to take us toward single-payer health care will absolutely gut Medicare as we know it, costing $32 trillion and doubling taxes for Virginia families,” said campaign spokeswoman Katey Price.
Last month, a Politifact article found that Nancy Pelosi’s PAC’s ad distorted Rep. Brat’s record on seniors’ health.
