    Arlen Specter was a party jumper. He was democrat for fourteen years before he changed parties to ride with the republicans until 2009 when he decided that he needed to switch back. Obamacare passed after he switched back to the democratic party.

    He was always a democrat at heart and only rode with the republicans to stay in office.

    Oh so now the CBO is relevent, but when they talk about the lowering of the deficit, they are wrong. If you actually read the healthcare law premiums are not going to go up.

    Oh yeah, because premiums aren't going to go up because the law says so? Right.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it lowers the deficit. There are a lot of tax increases in the law. Doesn't mean it still isn't a bad bill.

    So you are saying that the ACA law is a lie? Tell me how you have come to that conclusion. The ACA has nothing to do with the deficit. My point was the talking points by republicans.
