Ramesh Ponnuru over at NRO throws cold water on the latest round of lies the Wizard of 0 and his mendacious munchkins are throwing around:
Talking point: The bill will give tens of millions of Americans the same insurance choices as members of Congress.
Reality: Members of Congress are in a much less regulated system.
Talking point: The CBO says that the bill will reduce the deficit by $1 trillion over the next two decades.
Reality: CBO says that projections into the second decade are meaningless, and that even its first-decade projections include savings that it was ordered to assume will take place.
Talking point: Under the bill, small businesses will not have to choose between “hiring and health care.”
Reality: You might find yourself unable to get either a job or insurance from a small business because of this bill’s mandates.
On that last point, I would only offer that I believe that we will be hit by economic reality if ObamaCare passes. Jobs will become extremely hard to find as the economy nosedives. Small businesses will be crushed by these new rules and the tax hikes that are coming are going to stifle any growth for years to come.
America is being sacrificed on the alter Obama has built to himself.
I believe also that the Democrats have wildly underestimated the consequences of what they are trying to pass. They think they can “sell” it after they pass it. But America is being sold a bill of goods – and Americans have long memories.
