Politicians Calculating Obamacare Benefits:

President Obama makes the absurd claim that his healthcare proposal will save money:
When enacted, health reform is completely paid for and will reduce the deficit by more than one hundred billion dollars in the next ten years.
Nancy Pelosi makes the absurd claim that the new “healthcare” bill will “create 4 million jobs – 400,000 jobs almost immediately.”

Got that? A plan that will cut costs AND add 400,000 jobs immediately.

At the same time, the CBO says there isn't enough information on President Obama' s plan to make any calculations.


  1. Wenzel,

    Have you noticed how these slimy snakes are slowly reshaping the debate about healthcare "reform" from one of political necessity to one of economic necessity?

    We are at this point only a few short months away from absurd claims that it was a lack of healthcare "coverage" that caused the economic downturn! I'm not being hyperbolic here, they're already implying as much with BO & Co. saying that healthcare costs are a "major drag on the economy"

  2. The polling numbers are telling them to spin it this way.
