    Odd that...
    It's less about the CBO's believability and more about the credibility of the information provided and the results requested of the CBO.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    There is no magic wand to be waved around and provide everyone with a pretty dress to attend the ball. Sacrifices simply have to be made, something that Americans obviously have no clue about.

    Well, if you say it that way...you just sound ignorant. The protest was not that the CBO was unreliable, but the methods requested by Harry Reid did not accurately reflect the truth.

    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    There's no way in hell that losing 800,000 jobs--plus the tax revenue those jobs would bring in--will reduce the deficite.

    But that is exactly what was promised us. If we pass Obama care, the cost of health care would go down, the end results would improve, the number of doctors would magically increase and all while reducing the deficit, creating jobs and decreasing taxes. Meanwhile, the reallity is (as we predicted), the quality of care is going down, the cost of care is going up, taxes have increased and jobs will be lost....along with private care plans becoming a thing of the past.

    And the sacrifice is having to accept Obamacare or did I miss your point?

    The reality of the matter is that the constitution does not authoritze the Federal Government to order citzens to purchase health insurance. The US was built on the principal of the indiviual not the collective.

    The entire law hasn't even gone into effect, and already it's a job-killing, deficit-growing, freedom-hating piece of legislation? LMAO...You people are a joke. The cost of care going up has nothing to do with this law. Get real. By the way, under the Obama administration, you are paying less in taxes than you did under Bush. Taxes are at the lowest point since the 1960's. So, what was your point again?

    sacrifices aplenty---half tril cuts to medicare while simultaneously expanding its tens of T's of unfunded liability by millions more miserable members, 200B burden on already bankrupt states, a quarter T doc fix, another quarter T double counted according to cbo, three quarters of a T in new taxes according to cbo, ten years of pay-in for 6 years of bennies, increased er traffic and costs, doctors refusing to treat new medicare patients, and 800 exemptions for too bigs who if they didn't get em obviously would either dump their employees or simply drop outta business

    sell THAT, progressives

    so, on top of being an amateur constitutionalist, completely over his head in the rough world of realpolitik, and insufferably arrogant and elitist, president obtuse also turns out to be a LIAR

    live it, libs, love it, it's all YOURS
