Readers may recall that there are still a few Democrats out there brazen enough to suggest that the promises of ObamaCare are still possible. Yet, on Wednesday, in a hearing before the House Budget Committee, Richard Foster, the Obama Administration's Chief Actuary for Medicare had the following exchange with Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA)in which the two primary pillars of ObamaCare were demolished:
Q:True or False, will ObamaCare hold costs down? A: False.
Q:If you like your plan, you can keep it? A: False.
Democrat representatives at the hearing tried to use the occasion to attack the alternative plans offered by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan in his Roadmap. But guess what? When push came to shove Chief Actuary Foster actually said that Ryan's GOP plan would save more money than the current Dem program.
Don't expect to see this news widely reported. Most news agencies will be too busy rerunning the lie that ObamaCare will decrease health costs and let you keep your current coverage!
