ThinkProgress assembled a compilation video featuring many, if not all examples of the "Obama wants to kill old people" lie I wrote about in my Huffington Post column this week:

The Republican Party and the wingnut talkers are absolutely perpetrating a fraud against senior citizens. I mean, it's not even vaguely accurate.
