You can't bullshit a bunch bullshitters. Expanding the availability of health care is one thing, but don't try to sell it on the basis it will cost less.
If the CEO of a private business touted savings to it's stockholders, then came back and said, nope we're going deeper in debt, he'd be wrought with shareholder suits and the SEC would be all over him for fraud and deception. Not so if you are a President, or Senator, or Congressman.
There's no freakin' accountability in government.
Report: Health overhaul will increase tab
Health and Human Services experts say plan falls short of controlling costs
WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama's health care overhaul law will increase the nation's health care tab instead of bringing costs down, government economic forecasters concluded Thursday in a sobering assessment of the sweeping legislation.
A report by economic experts at the Health and Human Services Department said the health care remake will achieve Obama's aim of expanding health insurance ? adding 34 million Americans to the coverage rolls.
