Come-on Minnie - it's simple math. If it costs the country $1.2 trillion between 2012 and 2022, it would have to bring in $2.2 trillion in the second decade for the President to be accurate and truthful. Even your rosy liberal "journalists" claim that it will reduce the "deficit", not "debt", by $1 trillion in the second decade remains a net cost to the country of $200 billion over those 20 years. Now how is that "off by a few billion" unless you consider $1.2 trillion "a few billion"?
I considered your posts to be intellectually honest attempts at discussion but these past ones on this thread have me questioning why I accepted your interpretations on other threads. I'll be far more skeptical of your "facts" in the future.
