Hah-Hah!… Sorry WaPo… Sorry NY-Slimes… CBO NOW SAYS Repealing Obamacare Will Save US $540 Billion
This morning the far left was ranting on about how repealing Obamacare would actually cost taxpayers billions of dollars.
Rep. Anthony Weiner was spreading the lie last night on Hannity. The Washington Post published the lie this morning and again later today. The New York Times wrote that Republicans are ignoring the CBO results.
Today, the CBO (given the right data points) released new results that show that repealing Obamacare will save US taxpayers at least $540 billion.
The American Spectator reported:
The Congressional Budget Office, in an email to Capitol Hill staffers obtained by the Spectator, has said that repealing the national health care law would reduce net spending by $540 billion in the ten year period from 2012 through 2021. That number represents the cost of the new provisions, minus Medicare cuts. Repealing the bill would also eliminate $770 billion in taxes. It’s the tax hikes in the health care law (along with the Medicare cuts) which accounts for the $230 billion in deficit reduction.
Of course, anyone who believes that covering 30 million more people with health insurance would save taxpayers money is a complete nutcase in the first place.
