Sen. Robert Menendezs claims that President Obamas health care reform provides $250 million in savings over its first 10 years and $1.2 trillion over its second decade have been rated mostly false by Politifact, a nonpartisan fact checking website.
So the reality is the Congressional Budget Office says we save $250 million over the first 10 years. Over the next 10 years, we save $1.2 trillion in savings in terms of health care, Menendez said in a June 28 interview on the Regional News Networks Richard French Live, Politifact notes before assessing the claim.
The site concludes: The senator is clearly wrong to cite projected savings of $250 million over the first 10 years.
And the senator made a larger mistake by suggesting the budget office has projected $1.2 trillion in savings over the second 10 years, Politifact states, adding: The budget office has not projected any specific dollar figures for that period. The uncertainties are too substantial to create such detailed projections, according to the budget office.
Unusual, considering Politifact is a wing of the Obama Admin.
There should be a politifact to monitor politifact.
I just gave myself an idea.
We know Medicare is underfunded and the Medicare trustees say it is going to run out of money, which of course it never does because they throw more money at, so it costs more and more than they say it will.
It’s really amazing... Obamacare is like perpetual motion, or cold fusion. Getting something for nothing. How can you add the cost of providing care to 15 to 30 million more people, add 16,000 IRS agents and untold thousands more government bureaucrats, and more elderly on Medicare due to the aging Baby Boomers, all while reducing cost?
Answer: you can’t. Obama’s initial 900 billion dollar estimate will pale compared to the actual cost, especially when it gets fully implemented.
Now let ‘s all remember, unfortunately we don’t arrest, tar and feather lying politicians in America. We can only vote them out at the ballot box so let’s focus on that.
