Barbara Comstock Shills on Behalf of Romney Campaign Lies

Barbara Comstock was a prominent campaigner for the Romney camp in 2012. This clip shows her defending a Romney ad that fraudulently claimed that Obama was “robbing” seniors of  $716 billion of medicaid coverage. The ad referred to a bill that reduced what amounted to excessive payments for health care providers. The bill passed with huge bipartisan support, including Paul Ryan’s. The bill reduced the out of pocket payments seniors made. Romney’s plan (restoring the windfall payments to providers) actually would have increased out of pocket payments by seniors an estimated $342 per year. The ad was quickly debunked, much to the chagrin of the Romney soldiers enlisted to shill for it.
