Fight for it now, Mr. President. In 2012 it will be repealed.
The Hill reports:
President Obama officially drew a line in the sand Thursday evening, threatening to veto House Republicans’ attempt to repeal Obama’s landmark healthcare law.
In a statement of administration policy released by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), the administration said that repeal would “would explode the deficit, raise costs for the American people and businesses, deny an estimated 32 million people health insurance, and take us back to the days when insurers could deny, limit or drop coverage for any American.”
It’s already raising the costs for Americans and businesses…and it doesn’t go into full effect until 2014. How does this administration explain the ObamaCare waivers those 222 corporations and unions received? Employers are dropping health care coverage because they can’t afford the rising health care costs brought by the ObamaCare law.
Using the preliminary budget numbers Democrats seized upon on Thursday morning, OMB said that a preliminary analysis said that repeal would raise the “deficit by $230 billion in the first decade and roughly one-half of one percent of GDP, or over a trillion dollars, in the second decade.”
“Repealing the Affordable Care Act would not only increase deficits in the coming decade, but would also significantly worsen the long-term fiscal burdens on American businesses and families,” OMB said.
Yes, because we all know that adding 32 million into any system will save us money. The Democrat’s reasoning is exposed.
Repealing a bill before it becomes law will add to the deficit but adding 32 million new individuals into a system that creates more bureaucracies than can be counted upon adding more IRS agents to enforce the law supposedly lowers the deficit. Common sence overrules hopeful thinking that is backed by fraudulent numbers. Garbage in, garbage out.
How does taking a $1 trillion plus bill out of a budget increase the defict?
