The Death Paneling of the American Body Politic


Once a falsehood or an honest mistake has been introduced into the electorate, it can take on a life of its own. It can be very difficult to scrub this from the consciousness of the population. This post explores the reasons behind people clinging to a disproved lie or errors like death panels in the ACA.
