    White House Contradicts CBO, Misleads on Insurance Rate Increases

    by Morgen Richmond

    The President’s health care proposal this morning includes an FAQ section for various audiences – seniors, small business owners, the uninsured, etc. Here is one of the questions and answers for individuals who currently purchase insurance directly on the individual market (click for source):

    But here’s the thing – many of them will. At least according to the CBO. And the White House is deliberately and irresponsibly misleading the public by claiming otherwise.

    The contradiction is due to the "weasle factor"...

    "The key to their slipperiness on their answer to this question is the phrase “if you buy coverage like you have today“. Since their plan mandates more comprehensive coverage than what these individuals may have today, at a higher cost."

    I'll call it what it is:

    A calculated intentional lie.
