The General Accountability Office -- a nonpartisan government agency -- has released a report that says that the national debt would skyrocket if the health reform law was struck down. Don't believe me? The report is here. Read it yourself if you like. It says what it says -- if the planned changes to Medicaid and Medicare do not happen, the national debt will explode.
Sorry I'm a bit cranky. I'm so sick of writing about this law over and over and having people write me back to tell me crazy stories about all the insane things that they believe are part of this law. Why would you believe someone who hasn't read the law as opposed to someone who has (i.e., me)? Responses to today's newsletter have been wacky. One woman told me her doctor told her there are death panels, and, well, since he's her doctor, she believes him. Another woman called to get my mailing address so she can send me "proof" that the United States is joining the European Union in 2014!!!
I have no problem with people disagreeing with me as a matter of opinion. But when people state AS FACT things that are so clearly untrue, it makes me sort of nuts. Jennifer
