Senator Reid Just Making Shit Up

Sphere: Related Content

The Obama administration and Senate Democrats have been jerking off the public by talking about the largest entitlement program ever being "deficit neutral". This from the same regime that lost a ton on the Cash for Clunkers program (and didn't help the environment or the US worker) and just about every other scheme they've gotten their grubby hands on. Shockingly, they were lying in this one as well:

To describe the full amount of HI trust fund savings as both improving the government’s ability to pay future Medicare benefits and financing new spending outside of Medicare would essentially double-count a large share of those savings and thus overstate the improvement in the government’s fiscal position.

More here.

I know every administration cooks the books and plays with numbers but dude, the 0 administration has taken it to unseen heights. Ken Lay would have been embarrassed to try to pull something like this.

It's probably a done deal but there's always hope that the morons in the majority will snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

This healthcare nightmare has me all fired up. I don't understand how any honest minded person could support this monstrosity. I have posted frequently on the subject on my blog, epplereffect, and recenlty engaged in some discussion here:

There is one individual in particular (goes by Reasic) that is hopelessly lost in the euphoria of Obamamania and I do not understand how they could possibly be so misguided. I am beginning to fear that there will be no way to repair the damage being done.
