Among other things, Obama's original estimate for deficit reduction by ObamaCare over the first 10 years was $143 billion. Now, the estimate is that it will ADD $54 billion to the deficit over the first 10 years. Also disturbing is the fact that HHS Secretary Kathleen Sibelius looks completely bewildered by any of the questions being asked.

It was a classic political trick. When they talked about how it would reduce the deficit, the numbers were spread out over 10 years, but that only took into account 6 years of full Obamacare in action, since most major provisions don't take hold till 2013-14.

The major problem is that passed it as a budget resolution, which has to be at least deficit neutral, so it really never should have passed at all.

Just another Trick by this administration. Never a more corrupt Individual ever to hold the office.

I agree it was crappy, but I've NEVER heard of an administration that didn't use generous math. It's not just Mr. O.
