WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama told voters repeatedly during the health care debate that the overhaul legislation would bring down fast-rising health care costs and save them money. Now, he's hemming and hawing on that.

So far, the law he signed earlier this year hasn't had the desired effect. An analysis from Medicare's Office of the Actuary this week said that the nation's health care tab will go up - not down - through 2019 as a result of Obama's sweeping law, though the increase is modest.

Obama offered some caveats when asked in his news conference Friday about the apparent discrepancy between what he promised and what's actually happening so far. On several other topics, too, his rhetoric fell short of a full accounting.

I think "we told you so" is in order here.
At the very least. Every leftist in government, media or any other position to support Obamacare should have their predictions of lowered costs and the like run as a crawl at the bottom of the screen every time they come out in favor of the latest liberal idiocy, so that their track record of willful stupidity will be prominently displayed to their audience.
