You Lie! CBO Report On Health Care Merely Garbage In, Garbage Out

Leave it to tax-and-spend liberals to trumpet a $940 billion boondoggle as some sort of cost-savings measure.

Especially since the numbers don't really exist

But let's go with the lie for a moment.

Hey, if I drive competent people out of an entire sector of the economy and replace them with dim-witted drones (think TSA airport screeners with access to your most personal information), I can trumpet "savings" of a sort as well.

You just won't like the result.

Of course, the Democrats can claim deficit reduction in the CBO's numbers because the Congressional Budget Office merely calculates the data they are given; they do not weigh in on whether those figures are arrived at by honest data or data which has been manipulated.

As is so often the case, the numbers provided the CBO by House Democrats is more rigged with more tricks than Dolly Parton's superstructure.

The CBO figures trumpeted by Democrats is based on junk, because junk is what they fed them.

Here are some graphs that represent the true costs of health care reform. They don't represent the latest tweaks in the House bill, but instead were compiled from a nearly identical House plan and the Senate plan.

First, a graph based upon an earlier CBO report of a previous version of the House Bill (source).

Now the Senate Bill (source).

One thing you'll note in any honest representation of the Democratic health care rationing scam is that it is going to cost us hundreds of billions if not trillions of dollars to create a system when none are turned away, but all are equally miserable.

There can be health care reform. There will be health care reform. But it can be done without bankrupting our nation, or growing a federal government already intent on devouring our individual liberties.

Let's scrap this trainwreck, and start over with a bill that make sense, that all Americans can get behind.
