Pants on fire for Harry Reid on Planned Parenthood

Reid said Planned Parenthood is “the only health care that a significant number of women get. About 30 percent of women, that’s their health care.” That’s not the case — Planned Parenthood saw 2.7 million patients in 2013, not the 39 million it would have needed to see for Reid’s claim to be accurate. Even if every Planned Parenthood patient had no other health care options, the group would have seen about 2 percent of women, not 30 percent. His office acknowledged that Reid, making off-the-cuff remarks, got the talking point wrong. In this case, he really got it wrong. We rate the statement Pants on Fire.
