More ObamaCare© Shenanigans: HHS Shecantbeserious vs The Truth [Updated]

Why is this not surprising?

"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 [Shecantbeserious] more than a week before the Congressional votes on the bill."

Get that?

These folks knew that the final bill was going to be much, much higher than advertised, and withheld that vital information anyway. Would it have made a difference in the final vote tally? That's debatable and, of course, unknowable. But it might have given political "cover" to folks on the fence.

Which was exactly why it was buried:

"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."

Ya think?
