Rep. John Boehner's Fearmongering: Socialism!

On Meet the Press Boehner tried to distance himself from the "socialism" fearmongering but Gregory didn't do a very good job of calling him out on it. And, YES! John Boehner lies:

Via Think Progress:

Boehner is lying. He has said that what Obama and Democratic leaders are doing is socialism. From his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference a few months ago:

Well, the stimulus, the omnibus, the budget — it’s all one big down payment on a new American socialist experiment. … All of these bills seek to replace our economic freedom with the whims and mandates of politicians and bureaucrats.

Basically, Boehner admitted today that all he was doing there was
fear-mongering and attempting to scare the public for political gain.

Surprised? No, I didn't think so...
