ObamaCare (ObamaCaid) is Killing the Middle Class

What is striking is the level of subterfuge in Democrat-leaning published reports on the ObamaCaid—which is a programme of massive net loss for those who buy insurance with welfare assistance, and significant net gain for those who rely on others to pay for their insurance. For those who would like to think the New England Journal of Medicine is fair and balanced when it comes to Obama’s health care “law” –quotations used because Obama has broken his own law repeatedly over the years—think again. Here is an interesting sentence for NEJM item:

A New England Journal of Medicine study shows, rather unsurprisingly that fat folks who get more interventions to help them shed weight did better over a period of 2 years.

Obama has told us that preventative care instillation to millions more Americans will tamp down costs . But, pesky facts keep getting in the way. From ABC news via the CBO:

Elmendorf, director of the Congressional Budget Office, offered a skeptical view Friday of the cost savings that could result from preventive care -- an area that President Obama and congressional Democrats repeatedly had emphasized as a way health care reform would be less expensive in the long term.
