The HC Bill books were cooked??

The House Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee invited Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to swing by and have a little chin wag about the budgetary implications of ObamaCare. Representative John Shimkus (R-IL) noticed that the rather large sum of $500 billion was dedicated to both sustaining Medicare and funding ObamaCare. When he asked Sebelius which destiny awaited those five hundred billion clams, she replied, "Both."

That's right, folks: another part of the ObamaCare fraud involved double-counting half a trillion dollars. Shimkus said he was "shocked" to learn this. "We knew the health care law's actual cost was much greater than originally told to the public," he declared. "And now, the truth is slowly coming out in administration reports and testimony."

  • Well, we had to pass the bill to know what was in it. I guess now we know. I wonder what else will pop out of the pages.

  • Maybe it was a case of filling at the wrong line on the someone suggested for Clarence Thomas' $700,000 faux pas. Maybe the group is just really bad at Math.

  • It was a matter of them having the CBO score different sections of the bill separately so that they could claim that it would save us money in the long run.

  • You mean members of congress are finally figuring out what is in the bill ? Ever seen Seen NCIS where Gibbs smacks Tony up side the head?

  • Does that mean Boehner and McConnell get to smack Pelosi and Reid upside the head? I'd pay to see that!
