Obama, Reid, Pelosi, and scores of other Democrats stood in front of radio microphones, TV cameras, print journalists and bloggersto promise the American people their health care takeover would cost less than $1 trillion to implement. As proof, they cited Congressional Budget Office estimates.
Now, those of us who knew bettersaid so. We said the CBO estimates were based on distorted information that the Democratsgave them;the true cost would be well over $1 trillion. Obama, Reid, Pelosi, and scores of other Democrats stood in front of radio microphones, TV cameras, print journalists and bloggersto tell the American people that we were spreading misinformation.
Well. Now that the takeover is law, the CBO has released fresh numbers, adding $115 billion to the price tag. And, yes:The new estimate for the cost of Obamacare is now… dadelut, dadelut, dadelut! Over$1 trillion,as those of us who knew better predicted. And, I promise, it will go much, much higher. Money we don’t have, by the way.
This new CBO score is a response to questions raised by California Republican Congressman Jerry Lewis– before the vote. The CBO is just now answering them.
Obama, Reid, Pelsoi and scores of other Democrats won’t stand in front of radio microphones, TV cameras, print journalists and bloggersto admit to the American people that they sold them a bill of goods based on fraud, lies, and deceit — that’s my job (I happen todo it well). Your jobis to vote these corrupt Democrats out of powerin November –I’m going to be with you on that.
