Inconvenient Truths, Obamacare Edition

It’s a good thing Republican minds are impervious to reality, lest the streets become littered with chunks of exploding teabagger heads.  It turns out that “Obamacare” — far from being a budget-buster — will actually save money:

The new health care law has significantly improved the prognosis for Medicare, extending the life of its trust fund by 12 years until 2029, and thereby delaying any need for dramatic changes in benefits or revenues, according to a new report.

The annual check-up from government actuaries overseeing the nation’s two central safety-net programs also found that Social Security continues to be much less of a problem than Medicare, and will remain in strong financial shape at least through 2037.

Don’t worry, wingnuts.  Nothing’s changed for you and your ilk.  Carry on with the hysterical sloganeering.

If a tree falls in the forest, and Fox News doesn’t report it, did anything really happen?  Of course not.

Just repeat after me: Job-killing tax hikes…Government takeovers…Job-killing tax hikes…Government takeovers…Job-killing tax hikes…Government takeovers…
