Jerry Moran trots out unreliable poll during health-care scrum

U.S. Rep. Jerry Moran of Kansas reached into his bag of misinformation during the 11th hour of the health-care debate.

On Saturday Moran posted this message on his Facebook page:

An astonishing 46% of primary care physicians say they would leave the field of medicine if the Democrats’ plan becomes law.

The source of Moran’s “astonishing” data is presumably a poll sponsored by Investor’s Business Daily, the source of a pre-2008 election poll indicating that John McCain was poised to capture 74 percent of votes cast by 18- to 24-year-olds.
