Oh, those Teabaggers are back at it again… Trying to scare the American public by spreading lies and distortions and “misinformation” about the Stalinization of Health Care Act of 2010.
Comes today a report from one of these right-wing extremist groups with the dubius claim that:
the law falls short of the president’s twin goal of controlling runaway costs, raising projected spending by about 1 percent over 10 years. That increase could get bigger, since Medicare cuts in the law may be unrealistic and unsustainable, the report warned.
The report projected that Medicare cuts could drive about 15 percent of hospitals and other institutional providers into the red, “possibly jeopardizing access” to care for seniors.
Who’s this organization, praying on the fears of Americans, and distorting the purely beneficial results of Obamacare? The Department of Health and Human Services.
Naturally, likely hoping to avoid getting Olbermanned, the economists who authored the report included the caveat that it “does not represent the official position of the Obama administration.”
Nevertheless, Barack Obama is the CEO of the Federal Government, and a brach thereof just issued a report, based on the facts and their projections, that speaks negatively of his most favored piece of progressive legislation (so far). Should we expect Henry Waxman to summon him to testify in front of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce?
