Health care law quotes are bogus

The letter from Sherry Kisamore (Daily Bee, Sept. 30) should never have been sent, or published.

The entire set of quoted passages and page numbers and line numbers are completely false, there is nothing in the law (the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, H.R. 3590, commonly called “Obamacare”) which resembles the “quotes” she uses. It may match a proposed law H.R. 3200 which never passed. This is easily verified by checking the law and any fact-check site on the Internet.

Why are people so gullible to believe any false rumor in an email?

Why does the Daily Bee publish such false rumors — entertainment for readers, or are they gullible as well?
