"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

CBO: 7 Million Will Lose Healthcare Coverage Under ObamaCare

"You didn't really want to keep that insurance plan, did you? Too bad."

Do we all remember Obama telling us that if we liked our health insurance we could keep it? Just another lie, of course.

From Stephen Dinan of The Washington Times:
President Obama's health care law will push 7 million people out of their job-based insurance coverage — nearly twice the previous estimate, according to the latest estimates from the Congressional Budget Office released Tuesday.

CBO said that this year's tax cuts have changed the incentives for businesses and made it less attractive to pay for insurance, meaning fewer will decide to do so. Instead, they'll choose to pay a penalty to the government, totaling $13 billion in higher fees over the next decade.
What?! The feds underestimated the results of a monstrous 1000 page plus law? Say it isn't so.

And as far as all the people losing their health insurance through their jobs... well, I'm sure they didn't want to keep their coverage anyway, And that means that Obama didn't really lie at all. Right?

UPDATE: And slightly related-- Paul Krugman joins the ranks of prominent Leftists insisting on death panels for the future. That ridiculous Sarah Palin...
