We know about the now infamous "If you like your plan and doctor you can keep them" quotes.
And we know the source(s)
And we know it was all lies designed as a selling campaign.
And we all know Obama has admitted to the "exaggerations".
So where did that magic "average family of four will save $2,500 a year in premiums" lie originate ?
The "$2500 Lie" is the 3rd lie in the Triad of disinformation that was oh so hypnotic to the already financially stunned American Public and
probably was a major selling point.
First, Obama promised on numerous occasions that the average family of four will save $2,500 a year in premiums. Where did that number come from?
economists wrote a memo in 2007 in which they claimed that then-Senator Obama’s health-care plan would reduce national health-care spending by
$200 billion. Then, according to the New York Times, the authors “divided [$200 billion] by the country’s population, multiplied for a family of
four, and rounded down slightly to a number that was easy to grasp: $2,500.”
In September, the Obama administration’s Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services used far more rigorous methods to predict that Obamacare would
increase national health-care spending by $621 billion. Using Obama’s own math, that would mean — according to Chris Conover, an economist at the
American Enterprise Institute and Duke University — each family of four in America will spend an additional $7,450 thanks to Obamacare.
Of course, that methodology is still bogus. But it’s probably closer to the truth.
Obamacare: Lies All the Way Down
As the old saying goes....
something built on lies and deception always stays that way.
I wonder if preventive care for BULLitis is one of those "minimum coverage" mandates ?
