Healthcare Facts and Myths

It's been just over 100 days since the Dems passed Obamacare. Though many progressives opposed the final healthcare reform law as insufficiently radical, the President hailed it as "Another stone. . . laid in the foundation of the American dream."

How is it affecting the rest of us? Not good, according to a study by Senators Tom Coburn (R-OK) and John Barrasso (R-WY), both physicians. Among the documented and hyperlinked findings: Conclusion: Expect to pay much more than advertised. The good news: Much of Obamacare hasn't yet taken effect. So there's still time to repeal it.

Actually, if I were you, I wouldn't have titled this section "health care facts and myths." One of the facts is that they were never myths to begin with, they were always lies, lies told to assure passage of this monstrosity, and repeated now to cover over what it really represents.
