As rank-and-file Democrats gathered Wednesday to learn details of the long-awaited bill, the Congressional Budget Office also estimated the legislation would reduce federal deficits by a total of $127 billion over that decade, NBC News reported.

It will be double what they estimate I assure you. This is the worst atrocity that has ever come out of Washington and if we can't stop this now, it will totally destroy this country. I am in shock and beyond angry at the same time. These idiots have got to be elected out of office in 2010. :mad::mad::mad:

Add 250 billion for the "Dr. Fix" and another 500 billion they will NEVER cut from Medicare and you have a 750 billion dollar hole blown out of that estimate right out of the chute.

Plus, the big lie that the Democrats are espousing is that it will not add a dime to the deficit. That is a possibility for the first 10 years since taxes will be collected for 5 years before this monstrosity takes effect. In other words, 10 years worth of taxes and 5 years of benefits. The following 10 years will add around 3 trillion to the deficit. So, once again, Obummer lies.
