Intro: "The Washington Post has an apparent blockbuster story today. It reports that a new study finds that Obamacare will increase the budget deficit, not decrease it, as the Congressional Budget Office has found ... That sounds pretty legit, right? Actually, no. It's not even remotely legit."

Comments   

We are concerned about a recent drift towards vitriol in the RSN Reader comments section. There is a fine line between moderation and censorship. No one likes a harsh or confrontational forum atmosphere. At the same time everyone wants to be able to express themselves freely. We'll start by encouraging good judgment. If that doesn't work we'll have to ramp up the moderation.

General guidelines: Avoid personal attacks on other forum members; Avoid remarks that are ethnically derogatory; Do not advocate violence, or any illegal activity.

Remember that making the world better begins with responsible action.

And here was I thinking the health care programme was meant to bring health care to people currently excluded from it. Not as a budget saving measure. Surely if people who are so cats**t mean that they can't stand the idea of paying tax to save people’s lives want to top up the budget they can support a windback of America’s colonial wars.

The sooner we get rid of Obamacare the sooner we can replace it with Single-Payer (a.k.a. HEALTH care).

Another fine example of The World´s Best, Freeest Media at work.

No wonder newspapers are going out of business. Almost no one´s stupid enough to read them anymore.

Billy Bob says "The sooner we get rid of Obamacare the sooner we can replace it with Single-Payer (a.k.a. HEALTH care)."
You are correct, but as an outsider I wonder if the USA needs to go a step at a time and do the Obama changes, then move away from the insurance providers trap? This is a genuine question. I just don't think the USA seems able to move directly to single-pay health care.

Another piece of crap from the GW days.
Clean out Washington and take the Justices with you.
If the congress would pay back the Loans (illegal at that) they took from Social Security and Medicare we would not have any problems caring for Seniors or Disabled.

USA could have moved into real Healthcare in the 1960's but the Politicians love their Lobby Money and care less for Public. We are foolish enough to keep paying their benefits and Pensions. DUH

The corporations that have been in charge of health insurance are afraid of losing their PROFIT$ if we have Medicare for all. Insurance companies spent 60% on heath, while medicare spends 95% on care. Obamacare mandates that they spend no less than 85% on care. We're going in the right Direction, but we must keep the pressure on by demonstrating the TRUTH.

With Corporate control of media, there's corporate control of the message. The "public" can be lied to with impunity, and few are any wiser that their pocket book and their heath are in jeopardy.

Don't be fooled !
