Fox News is reporting that the Congressional Budget Office has scored the Senate Health Care bill at a cost of $849 billion. The CBO also estimated it would cut the federal deficit by $127 billion over the first 10 years and as much as $650 billion over the next 10 years - while reducing the number of uninsured by 31 million over the decade (foxnews.com, 2009).
Here is the link to the source. Debate the merits of the report if you will, but do not underestimate its headline value when parroted by the MSM. The American public can be duped when it is told to like something endlessly. It may be time to double opposition efforts.
