Total Lack Of Surprise

May 4th, 2011

Hats off to Johnathan Cohn for his piece at The New Republic. The opener is pure money:

"It’s becoming pretty clear how Republicans plan to defend their budget. They’re going to lie about it."

The breakdown:

"The cuts in the Affordable Care Act hit the providers and producers of health care more than the consumers, at least directly, and include changes to the delivery of medical care that will, with any luck, make it possible for people to get better, more efficient health care even as it costs less. The Republican budget actually includes most of these same cuts for the first ten years, but then puts almost the entire onus for cost-cutting on individual beneficiaries via the vouchers.

Do Rubio and his colleagues care that they are completely distorting reality? Do they even realize it? Your guess is as good as mine. And quite possibly theirs."
