CBO: Reid/Obama are using "double entry lie" accounting in their health care claims

Of course our "deficit hawk" president will veto this bill if it gets to his desk in this condition, right?

...To describe the full amount of HI trust fund savings as both improving the government’s ability to pay future Medicare benefits and financing new spending outside of Medicare would essentially double-count a large share of those savings and thus overstate the improvement in the government’s fiscal position.
That's CYA bureaucrat speak for "These fools are playing you like a Steinway suckers!"

An even simpler two word translation: "they lie".

One of the posters over at FDL is riffing on the "Obama lies" theme too:

...and to bring down health care costs by $2,500 per year for a family. The Senate bill will do none of these things.

Obama did promise to not do two very important things with health care reform. He promised to not include an individual mandate and not tax employer-provided health insurance benefits. This Senate bill breaks both of those promises...

Curiously, this poster isn't getting ripped in the comments much at all. Obama bashing, rather suddenly across the board, has become acceptable/tolerable among quite a few leftist blogs. How much longer can the media hold on abusing that poor Chicken, when the base is revolting?

All that euphoria of a few years ago seems so naive now doesn't it? Doods, you got fooled again, only 10X worse this time. You got played by real pros. Cheney/Bush? Amateurs. Rank Amateurs.
