    Another victory for Transparency!

    :eusa_whistle:

    The Medicare Actuary's report could have been released prior to the vote on ObamaCare, but was withheld by the Obama Administration:

    The economic report released last week by Health and Human Services, which indicated that President Barack Obama's health care "reform" law would actually increase the cost of health care and impose higher costs on consumers, had been submitted to the office of HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius more than a week before the Congressional votes on the bill, according to career HHS sources, who added that Sebelius's staff refused to review the document before the vote was taken.

    "The reason we were given was that they did not want to influence the vote," says an HHS source. "Which is actually the point of having a review like this, you would think.

    They didn't want the HHS report to influence the vote, but were perfectly "au fait" with having the CBO report influence it.

    Check the footnotes where it discusses the power government will gain from healthcare reform. Money only matters to those who don't have the power to get what they want.

    Everyone here in USMB and America, that is paying through the nose for health care coverage will sooner or later find out that the cost of their healthcare rates are rising right under our noses.

    Meds that I personally had co-pays of $10 are now, for the majority, up to $25 and $50 PER MED!. Six months ago we had a $200/MONTH increase in our plan which is just UNDER middle of the road for coverage, about $750/mo for two people with co-pays. They obviously took steps to avoid future 'losses' to their bottom lines. ANY insurance representative that visits USMB can honestly say, this is the truth, we see it happening all over.

    This administrations actions have, in my opinion, lied and deceived everyone in this country in order to pass this Trillion dollar plus plus healthcare reform. Again the American taxpayers have gotten it shoved up their backsides by arrogant and inexperienced 'leaders' who's only goal, it would appear, is to have their name written down in history at the expense of the countries citizens.
