WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama used only-in-Washington accounting Wednesday when he promised to overhaul the nation's health care system without adding "one dime" to the deficit. By conventional arithmetic, Democratic plans would drive up the deficit by billions of dollars.You know BHO is losing the Healthcare Crisis battle when the people who elected him begin to expose his lies. What are they thinking? The next thing you know, ABC News will start reporting the facts. I swear if I start seeing MSNBC doing stories critical to Obama, I may have to uncork a champagne bottle.
The president's speech to Congress contained a variety of oversimplifications and omissions in laying out what he wants to do about health insurance.
