Same CBO That Praised Obamacare and Was Off by $115 Billion Pans GOP Healthcare Bill Today
In March 2010 leading democrats and their lackeys in the state-run media were “just giddy” to report that the CBO crunched some numbers and found the nationalized health care bill they were pushing would reduce the deficit by $138 billion.
It was a lie. Democrats knew it was a lie.
But, after several backroom deals, they rammed the bill through Congress anyway.
Then in May of 2010 the CBO corrected the numbers and said Obamacare will cost taxpayers at least $115 billion more than promised. Democrats pulled a fast one on the American public.
Republican Senators pointed out the deceit in a 2010 video:
Democrats promised that Obamacare would cost $940 billion when they rammed it through Congress. The actual cost has gone up with each revision.
A recent report says Obamacare will cost $2.6 trillion – nearly three times as much as Democrats predicted.
Today the far left CBO panned the Republican healthcare bill.
The Trump White House slammed the CBO’s report.
The Hill reported:
The Trump administration on Monday slammed a Congressional Budget Office estimate that millions of people would become uninsured under the Republicans’ plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare.
“We disagree strenuously with the report that was put out,” Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price told reporters at the White House.
Price said the analysis released Monday afternoon does not take into account the entirety of the GOP plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, which he said would cover more people while lowering costs.
The long-awaited report has roiled the debate over the GOP’s bid to overhaul the healthcare system, which would include repealing many elements of the Affordable Care and Act and creating a new tax credit to help people buy insurance.
The plan is already facing resistance from conservatives who say the bill doesn’t go far enough, while more moderate Republicans have expressed concern about the bill’s defunding of Planned Parenthood and the rollback of expanded access to Medicaid.
