last time a CBO projected cost came in ?
He's right. As with every government program the "free" in free health care is going to cost everybody a lot more than was originally stated. Besides this was never about health care. If they cared about our health they would have put us on the same plan that congress is on.
Op-Ed from the guy who has public healthcare, what a crook.
Koch brothers are the real terrorists.
That was always a lie......and they knew it was a lie, all along.
"OP-ED published on CNN" – oh wow, the CNN is becoming more and more like a tabloid. I swear another few months and CNN will never be able to get its reputation back. Take a note CNN management.
You mean Obama and the Democrats who had to coerce and bribe others and not let anyone actually see the bill (let alone study it) were being dishonest in the manner, claims and outloook?
Can't imagine that....
Mitch McConnell is as inexperienced with truth as he is with flying without benefit of an airplane. He would not recognize truth if it came up and slapped him.
McConnel, if you have ever been sick and needed to go to the doctor but were turned down because you did not have Medical Insurance as I have been and millions upon millions of other Americans then you would know why we back this Health Care Plan. To a calloused Republican like you it probably doesn't mean much but at least realize that thousands a year die because card carrying Republican doctors are so greedy and self-centered and mean spirited and calloused that the cries of pain and suffering mean nothing to them. Like you, McConnel, its all about money – first and last and all the way through.
Unlike the Bush tax cuts, put through by reconciliation, the healthcare passed on Christmas eve with 60 votes! Why don't the republicans ever acknowledge that fact?!?!
