    CBO: Repealing Obamacare would increase deficit by $109 billion | The Raw Story

    He dodged the direct question about his plans and said we'd have to 'go on his website to read about it'. Problem with that is his website still has old lies up. They haven't changed to the new lies yet. Why won't these jokers just fess up?

    Anyway, his ACA lie was part of that spiel - he said, very clearly, that repealing ACA would lower the deficit. Even those who are against getting good health care insurance know this is not true.

    Here's the letter that John Boehner has lied about -
    CBO | Letter to the Honorable John Boehner providing an estimate for H.R. 6079, the Repeal of Obamacare Act

    Anyone who believes the R is working for the good of the American people is not paying attention.

    luddly, seriously - if preserving ACA is your biggest concern, you have nothing to fear from Romney. He'll do more to protect the interests of the insurance industry than Obama will, and he's not about to kill their golden goose. The only realistic threat to ACA at this point is strong opposition in Congress.

    What you should be worried about with a Romney victory is the resurgence of the neo-cons (as though Obama isn't already 'neo-con' enough).

    I've said repeatedly that ACA will not be repealed. That was not the subject of this thread. The various LIES were the subject. Are you saying you're okay with those lies?

    Did you see the outright lie from Boehner?

    Did you read the letter I linked to?

    Actually, no. I take it for granted he's lying. And, no. It's not ok.
