Health Care Repeal: ...And Then The Scare Tactics Return

Posted by Brian
BOHICA - Bend over. Here it comes again.  Kathleen Sebelius upped the ante on scaring the bejeezus our of people regarding universal health care, warning that up to 129 million people could be denied health care if ObamaCare is repealed.  During the original debate, we "needed" this bill to insure the 40 - 50 million that they claimed didn't have health insurance, though the bill itself only insure about 17 million of those 40 - 40 million.  Now she is warning that up to 3 times that amount would be affected.  Where does she get her numbers?  Why, it's from her own department studies, The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).  Is it possible that she and her department are manipulating the data (cooking the books) run out to the cameras and give the Democrats their latest talking point in this debate.  Bet on it.

(CNSNews.com) – With a health care repeal vote scheduled for Wednesday in the Republican-led U.S. House of Representatives, the Obama administration is warning Americans of dire consequences if the Democrats’ law is repealed, defunded or gutted.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius framed the Democrats’ argument in a news release on Monday.

Sebelius pointed to a new analysis – done by her own department -- showing that without the Affordable Care Act, up to 129 million non-elderly Americans who have some type of pre-existing health condition would be at risk of losing health insurance or being denied coverage altogether.
