I know some of you will scoff at my headline because I'm lowballing the number, but for the purposes of this post, bear with me.
As some of you may have seen on our wire today, Medicare’s Chief Actuary Rick Foster answered questions about what is true and what is not regarding Obamacare. Guess what, there's two very key Obama promises that fall into the "false" category:
National Review provides a transcript of the question and answer during a House Budget Committee hearing featuring Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA)
McCLINTOCK: “True or false: The two principle promises that were made in support of Obamacare were one, that it would hold costs down. True or false?”
FOSTER: “I would say false, more so than true.”
McCLINTOCK: “The other promise…was the promise that if you like your plan, you can keep it. True or false?”
FOSTER: “Not true in all cases.”
That is absolutely priceless. And you can bet that as the 2012 campaign season gets underway, we'll be seeing a lot of this video.
The only thing that would have made the response even better is if McClintock would have asked Foster to yell out "bullsh**" if the answer was "false." You know, like the middle-school card game. That would have added some emphasis.
