Democracy Now on the CBO wealthcare report
Pretty much what everyone else is saying. Except that while the White House is deriding the report, it's own analysis says 26 million Americans will lose coverage over the next decade! Also how Speaker Ryan actually finds the CBO report encouraging! You see, the GOP is giving Americans a choice to not buy insurance, ignoring that they can't afford to buy it now. So yes, it cuts costs because it cuts the number of people insured. It's reverse Robin Hood, stealing money from the poor and giving it to the rich: wealthcare, not healthcare. Democracy Now is famous for fair and accurate reporting and the same is true here.
