What was abundantly clear about Obamacare’s real costs, to those of us who formed the TEA party movement to fight it, has now been certified by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).
The lies and smug grins from the Democrats who forced Obamacare down our throats would be wiped away if we had an honest media – which of course we do not.
The CBO is saying that the cost of Obamacare will be nearly double the fairy-tale lying Democrats told us it would be two years ago.
Coming on the heels of its recent report contradicting Obama’s lies about the unemployment numbers (when Obama was lying that unemployment was 8.3%, CBO reported it is 15%), this new burst of honesty from any government agency under Obama is indeed refreshing.
The CBO now projects the Democrats’ Frankenstein monster will cost $1.76 TRILLION of our tax dollars over the next ten years (and do you REALLY believe that?) instead of the $940 BILLION DOLLARS that liars like Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi told us it would cost.
Showing us the truth behind the Democrat curtain, the CBO projects that the weak economy inflicted on us by Obama (and doesn’t he continually tell us how great the economy is?) will force millions of more people into the Democrats’ government clutches.
To insure they would still have jobs, the people at the CBO helped Obama spray some perfume on this steaming pile of dung by including their own lie about new revenue from increased taxes and penalties being able to offset any cost over runs.
This begs the question: where does new revenue come from when our national jobs pool keeps shrinking?
The report also tells us that by 2022, three million fewer people will have private employer provided health insurance and a startling 17 million more will be on the Medicaid AND 22 million more will be forced onto sub-standard government health insurance plans.
Lies like this deserve coverage, but we will get none from the lowlifes in the media –any questions?
