This is what is wrong with the conservative movement:
So-called activists distort the truth to sling mud at liberals and then interrupt and badger them in order to prevent them from making a point and explaining the legislation.
What an asshole.
Good for Franken. I wouldn't have been so reserved in my response.
Here is the fact checking on Mr. Mattera's bullshit accusations.
From Media Matters.
The provision Mattera himself reads refers to giving grants to "provide physical activity opportunities" in order to reduce chronic disease. After falsely claiming that the bill contains a provision "giving $7 billion to fund jungle gyms," Mattera reads the provision he's referring to, which contains no mentions of "jungle gyms."
In the "Creating Healthier Communities" portion of the Senate version of the bill, under the section "Community Transformation Grants," entities receiving grants may use them toward activities such as "creating healthier school environments, including increasing healthy food options, physical activity opportunities, promotion of healthy lifestyle, emotional wellness, and prevention curricula, and activities to prevent chronic diseases."
