On the very day that Sen. Ted Cruz was rallying patriots everywhere with his talk-a-thon filibuster, the Department of Health and Human Services put out a piece of Obamacare propaganda. According to this report, everyone will have several choices and premiums will be lower than expected. That tiny little, very general, anecdotal, 15-page report put out by HHS pales in comparison to a 2,000-page bill that no one read. How can anything be based on that?

Are we really supposed to believe that the report would, in any way, be impartial coming from Sebelius’ HHS, anyway? Now that we have seen the corruption that this administration is willing to exact on the American people with the IRS, SEC, EPA, NSA, etc., why should anyone trust “findings” from HHS?

The timing is suspect, too. Why did this “report” come out the very day of Cruz’s filibuster? This seems more like PR to me. If this isn’t by design, Paula Deen doesn’t make cakes!

According to Forbes, former Congressional Budget Office Director Douglas Holtz-Eakin said, “There are literally no comparisons to current rates. That is, HHS has chosen to dodge the question of whose rates are going up, and how much. Instead they try to distract with a comparison to a hypothetical number that has nothing to do with the actual experience of real people.”

That sounds like commentary based on real evidence that he would know. The reality is that no one really knows, because we haven’t seen any real numbers yet. These are all estimates. Since when is it the responsibility of HHS to “guess” for purposes of public relations? Since when do government agencies get to publish their hypotheses based upon their own assumptions and made-up estimates?
