As the Republican leader in the U.S. House of Representatives, John Boehner could use his important position to forge honest consensus around reforms that most Americans overwhelmingly support. Sadly, Boehner is choosing to be a leading peddler of health reform lies instead.

When Boehner repeated his claim that reform would result in a government takeover of health care, it was clear he’s been too busy trying to score political points to read the overwhelming evidence — including a post from the non-partisan FactCheck.org — debunking this claim.

And cruelly scaring seniors with lies about benefit cuts, even though his own party voted to gut Medicare? On his side of the aisle, that’s become standard operating procedure.

Then of course there’s Boehner’s blatant lie that reform will provide taxpayer-funded abortions, a claim rejected even by groups that oppose abortion. His lies have been thoroughly debunked, but John Boehner just won’t stop — so we’re calling him out.

Call ’em Out: John Boehner. Watch the video, spread the word, write a letter.

"Call ’em out" is our new campaign to expose Republican officials who lie about health reform, and we’ve got the attention of the media and GOP politicians alike. MSNBC noted that Democrats were going on the offensive, and thousands of folks like you called Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty and told him to stop lying about reform.

Now it’s John Boehner’s turn. Share our video about how Boehner won’t tell the truth about reform. Spread the word to your friends on Twitter and Facebook. Write a letter to the editor setting the record straight.

While thousands of Americans go without desperately needed care and millions more wonder if their coverage will be there if they get sick, John Boehner’s only "plan" is to lie and spread falsehoods to score political points.

We’re not going to take it. We’re calling him out:


Keep up the fight,
