    Bill O'Reilly accused Tom Coburn of lying when Coburn said that Fox News said you could go to jail for not getting health insurance. O'Reilly claimed they went back to research it and couldn't find a single person on fox who had made such a claim...

    Either Bill is a tremendous liar, or the world's laziest researcher

    The ending is the best though, glenn beck was ON o'reilly's show making the claim.

    Literally a mountain of evidence against o'reilly's claim

    I think O'Reilly was dumb to get caught up in that. The thinking DOES work though.

    If government applies a fine for not paying for health insurance, individual refuses to pay fine, then if government enforces non-payment person would be fined more heavily, wages garnished or jail time.

    It's sensational but not really that far off from reality.

    That question was settled long ago. The answer is both.

    He claimed to be a registered independent right up 'till someone took the time to go look it up and found the registration form 'ol Bill himself filled out listing him as a Republican. He claims to come from lower middle class roots, yet his mom seems to think that the family got a new car every third year and vacationed in Florida every year. He claimed having a 'bad knee' that kept him from serving in Vietnam yet now jogs on a regular basis.
