    Bill Scher: House GOP Will Obliterate Its Own 'CutGo' Rule When It Repeals Health Reform


    "The House Republican leadership has announced it will enact two things immediately upon taking control of the House this week: a new "CutGo" rule to require revenue offsets for any increases in spending, and the repeal of the Affordable Care Act health reform law.

    The Republicans might want to pass health reform repeal first.

    Because if they install "CutGo" rules first, they won't be able to repeal health reform without also finding $1 trillion in spending cuts over the next two decades to make up for the taxpayer savings they'll be throwing away."

    Hate to break it to you, but you dont save money when costs increase.

    It's called basic math.

    Those "savings" come from double counting and accounting gimmicks, repealing them is common sense. If a business tried that kind of stuff the accountant would end up in jail, and the company would owe money to the IRS.
