One side is lying; the other side is not telling the truth.
Or to put it another way: One side is pretending that a wildly reactionary plan to further enrich rapacious corporations is really hardcore, gutbucket socialism from the Bolshevik trenches, while the other side is pretending that its "reform" is not really a wildly reactionary plan to further enrich rapacious corporations but something that will somehow, in some way, be good for some people at some point way down the line.
One often finds that dealing in such utter unreality makes it somewhat difficult to achieve workable solutions to real-life problems.
