Rep. Tom McClintock got Chief Medicare Actuary Rick Foster to answer a couple true-false questions:
And the transcript:
McCLINTOCK: “True or false: The two principle promises that were made in support of Obamacare were one, that it would hold costs down. True or false?”
FOSTER: “I would say false, more so than true.”
McCLINTOCK: “The other promise…was the promise that if you like your plan, you can keep it. True or false?”
FOSTER: “Not true in all cases.”
I’m not sure if the reason he wasn’t saying this before Obamacare was passed was because he just didn’t know what was in that 2,000+ page behemoth or because Democrats in control on Capitol Hill didn’t have the guts to ask.
