Are Democrats lying to the American public? Do bears poop in the woods?
Congressman Paul Ryan just posted this:
“The Congressional Budget Office has confirmed that there is currently no official cost estimate. Yet House Democrats are touting to the press – and spinning for partisan gain – numbers that have not been released and are impossible to confirm. Rep. James Clyburn stated he was“giddy” about these unsubstantiated numbers. This is the latest outrageous exploitation by the Majority – in this case abusing the confidentiality of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office – to pass their massive health care overhaul at any cost.”
So it appears that the Dems got their hands on some preliminary numbers and are trying to push them as the final numbers. I guess if it’s okay to pass a bill without actually voting on it, it’s also okay to spin CBO numbers to say something that hasn’t even been officially reported yet.
Never trust a liberal politician. Never.
