Skip to comments.Obama Officials Sat On Damning Obamacare Info Until After Congressional Vote
Posted on 04/30/2010 5:54:46 AM PDT by avg_freeper
The Obama-Pelosi Regime took control of one-sixth of the nations economy when they passed their nationalized health care bill and signed it into law in late March. The bill was never popular but democrats persisted and rammed the bill through Congress. Now, there are reports that the Obama Administration sat on damning information and hid it from the public until after their bill was passed into law.
On Monday the American Spectator reported that a damning health care report generated by actuaries at the Health and Human Services (HHS) Department was given to HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius more than a week before the health care vote. Sebelius and the Obama Administration reportedly hid the report from the public until a month after democrats rammed their nationalized health care bill through Congress.
The Prowler reported:
The economic report released last week by Health and Human Services, which indicated that President Barack Obamas health care reform law would actually increase the cost of health care and impose higher costs on consumers, had been submitted to the office of HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius more than a week before the Congressional votes on the bill, according to career HHS sources, who added that Sebeliuss staff refused to review the document before the vote was taken. The reason we were given was that they did not want to influence the vote, says an HHS source. Which is actually the point of having a review like this, you would think. We know a copy was sent to the White House via their legislative affairs staff, says the HHS staffer, and there were a number of meetings here almost right after the analysis was submitted to the secretarys office.

I hope this gets interesting.
Color me shocked.
These vermin should burn in hell.
Obama lied. Were this to have a version number, there’d be A LOT of commas.
I wish I was wrong but the media will turn the other way and cover something really important like Michelle’s garden.
ping for later
Captain Obvious alert.
This would be pulitzer material if it were a conservative initiative where the facts were hidden. Now it is a relatively small online organization that does the spade work reporting. Hope it hits Drudge.
For all the good it will do I AM sending this to my Congresscritter and the sorry senator who arrogantly voted for this bull.
Official “damning report” says what any real American with a brain has been saying forever - more government = higher cost and lower quality.
Maybe this will provide some additional legal ammo to help the states fighting Obamacare.
"The purpose of this lawsuit is to reverse Supreme Court precedent related to the Commerce clause and thereby overturn Obamacare. The Supreme Court has historically erred in its interpretation of the Constitutional role of the Federal Government. Recent Supreme Court rulings hint that they may be willing to take another look at Commerce clause precedent. Obamacare is so over reaching and so onerous, that it must either be repealed in Congress or struck down in the courts. We must fight this on both fronts. This is our historic opportunity to reverse Americas trend toward Socialism by overturning this unconstitutional precedent.

Spread the word.
This is really a SMALL F***ing deal. Anyone with any economic sense could figure out that that the 0 plan would lead to higher costs. Anyone knowing politics sensed that 0 was not telling the truth.
Already the 0-administration is preparing to try to hold down costs by fixing prices.
Now, fellow amateur economists! What happens when you a. increase demand, and b. artificially fix prices lower than the market level? RIGHT! You get shortages. And under what conditions does this happen? ALWAYS! There are few certainties in the world of the social sciences, but this is one of them.
The 0-plan will lead to all the usual results of “well intentioned” socialist plans: shortages, and poor quality (in this case, shoddy health service). The reason is that when there are extreme shortages, we (the consumers) will accept anything because it is better than nothing.
In abundance, consumers can be picky, and quality improves; in times of scarcity, people will eat sawdust, grass, and dirt.
Expect healthcare quality to decline if 0-care is actually implemented. People will pay for socialist fantasy with their lives.
But the catastrophe is worse that that. It is one thing to die knowing that people worked to help you survive. It is spiritual torture to die in bureaucratic neglect, while being bombarded with propaganda about how great the system is.
If someone at Goldman Sacks had done this, they’d be sent to prison for 10 years.
It’s gotten to point of being ridiculous with the media. Ok, so they ignored fubo’s past and didn’t vet him during the elections.... they were enamored... but now, with all the crap going on ...things that make watergate look like a high school prank gone bad, they are completely derelict in their duty to investigate and report. What’s worse... is that they don’t even have to make the effort... the leg work (that they used to do) is being done for them by people in the new media... and yet the still ignore it. They should be held for treason... or at least as accomplices to the treason.
That goes without saying.
Someday there will be a Giant Headline in all the newspapers in the country saying "OBAMA TELLS THE TRUTH".
It will probably be a death-bed confession that he was a serial liar.
No, it will be his final lie...................
I do too, but ultimately, it won’t go anywhere unless the Republicans recapture the House. Once they do that, Darrell Issa will have the power to convene hearings on this issue, not to mention a whole host of other things too.
