There was a lot of confusion this afternoon when the CBO released its cost estimate for the House bill. Democrats had said earlier in the day that the bill would cost $894 billion -- just under the $900 billion limit set by President Obama. But in the CBO analysis there were two price tags: a net cost of $894 billion and a gross cost of just over $1 trillion. Both numbers are correct, but Democrats shifted the terms of the debate and cherry picked the lower one.
Until now, lawmakers have quoted the gross cost when talking about how much reform legislation costs. But today, House Democrats used the bill's net costs -- the amount the bill will cost after taxes, penalties and other pay fors are factored in. [...]
Yeah. They lied and that MORON that said that this was THE MOST transparent piece of legislation was a huge joke as well. Damned liars.

We’re going to pass a health care plan written by a committee whose head says he doesn’t understand it, passed by a Congress that hasn’t read it but exempts themselves from it, signed by a president that also hasn’t read it, and who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes, overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that’s broke.
What possibly could go wrong?
