Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

HHS actuaries’ report showing ObamaCare’s crippling costs was sat on until AFTER the vote was held!

Boy, it sure is a good thing we’ve got a media in this country that is entrusted to shine the light of truth on this kind of thing, as opposed to being the dog washers of the Democrats and the administration!

Details:

The economic report released last week by Health and Human Services, which indicated that President Barack Obama’s health care “reform” law would actually increase the cost of health care and impose higher costs on consumers, had been submitted to the office of HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius more than a week before the Congressional votes on the bill, according to career HHS sources, who added that Sebelius’s staff refused to review the document before the vote was taken.
 
“The reason we were given was that they did not want to influence the vote,” says an HHS source. “Which is actually the point of having a review like this, you would think.”  (Yeah, that kind of IS the point of such a report. – Ed.)
 
The analysis, performed by Medicare’s Office of the Actuary, which in the past has been identified as a “nonpolitical” office, set off alarm bells when submitted. “We know a copy was sent to the White House via their legislative affairs staff,” says the HHS staffer, “and there were a number of meetings here almost right after the analysis was submitted to the secretary’s office. Everyone went into lockdown, and people here were too scared to go public with the report.”

Liberals are impervious to facts, of course, so they didn’t need such a report giving them grief.  A handful of Lap Dog Dems supported the bill under the bovine feces guise that the bill reduced costs and the deficit (parroting Oprompter’s talking points), and had this report seen the light of day before the vote, they would have had to look for a different excuse.  Sure, they would have settled on a new excuse anyway, but they would have had a devil of a time explaining to their constituents why making health care and health insurance more expensive was a good thing.  Why, it’s as if they had their minds made up in advance or something!
