The Big Republican Lie for 2010: Health Care

0

Texas Republicans are going to lie, every day from now until November, about health care costs. Elise Hu with the Texas Tribune reports, “Blame it On Health Care”:

As Elise reports, the health care bill will not contribute, in any way, to the $11-$15 billion budget shortfall Rick Perry and Texas' Republican lawmakers. But Republicans will still repeat the claim that the budget shortfall they created is due to the fact that Democrats believe that providing health coverage to $4.3 million more Texans is a good thing.
