Harry Reid and his jolly elves today will deliver unto America a Christ mas gift it can ill-afford -- health- care "reform" -- and then vote to raise the federal debt ceiling to a staggering $14 trillion to help pay for it all. The two are not unrelated.That became clear yesterday, when the Congressional Budget Office blew the whistle on some fiscal deck-shuffling so egregious that it might make even Bernie Madoff blush.

Turns out that Reid & Co. have been double-counting the proposed Medicare savings to satisfy President Obama's "demand" (wink, wink) that any health-care bill reduce the deficit.
EPAWhich means, as Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) notes, that what Obama and the Democrats claim is a $132 billion deficit reduction over 10 years is actually a $300 billion increase.Sessions calls this "a potential game-changer" -- and you'd think it would be.

But "moderate" Democrats like Ben Nelson of Nebraska and Mary Landrieu of Louisiana bartered their votes for constituent cash -- while New York's Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand gave up theirs for, well, nothing.
