Discussion: Mulvaney: 'According To The CBO, It's Sunny And 75° This Morning'

What a dipstick.

This is particularly insulting as the WH’s (secret) internal projection was 2M MORE people losing insurance than the CBO projected. In other words, the CBO was too conservative in their estimate.

Well, if Muck Malarkey says everything is sunny and warm, you know a hellacious blizzard is coming.

Sorry, Mulvaney, but the only one trying to blow sunshine up our asses is you. And almost everyone knows it.

I’m, like, a smart person, with —I think–a good brain, but I can’t understand one sentence this guy says.

Oh you are TOO CUTE Mick. According to the Republicans this is 'Morning in America" all over again. ‘We’re gonna throw you off your healthcare for YOUR OWN GOOD! You’re gonna THANK us!
Less coverage but more access that you can’t afford. It’ll make you aspire to greatness!!!’

Ha. ha. ha. What a card, this guy. Why that’s nearly as funny as…being kicked off your health care plan.

Hmm well according to the White House’s own estimates of the bill’s impact they are right. The CBO is wrong. It underestimates by 2 million the number of people who will no longer have health insurance.

"The [White House] analysis found that under the American Health Care Act the coverage losses would include 17 million for Medicaid, six million in the individual market and three million in employer-based plans.

A total of 54 million individuals would be uninsured in 2026 under the GOP plan, according to the White House analysis. That’s nearly double the number projected under current law." Politico

The previous administration could have done an analysis???
“No one is offering repeal and no replace”, but Price says that’s exactly what is going on.
“Obamacare didn’t provide people any health care”—meaning, doctors provided the health care??
They couldn’t go to the doctor? Where are the numbers on this?

Has a larger cadre of pathological liars ever been assembled under one roof.
They’re all Tommy Flannigan’s
You almost expect each and every one of them to say
“Ya That’s The Ticket” after every pronouncement

So people will be able to get care, if they are able to paying 75% of their income on insurance.

They’ve cut the legs out from under scientific consensus, they’ve been chipping away at the media for decades, they’ve been humping the laffer curve for decades as if it were a thing, so yeah, let’s go after the main arbiter of fiscal reality for the federal government, because why not? Who needs facts.

These guys are well on their way to finishing off the pillars of democracy.

The Laffer curve is sophomore mathematics----high school sophomore.
Should we use high school physics and chemistry too?

Put your money where your mouth is, Mulvaney: two $10,000.00 bets.

Let’s see your predicted number of uninsured after one year. If your number is closer than the CBO’s number after one year you win the first bet.

If your number of uninsured after three years is closer than the CBO’s then you win the second bet.

But you know that you’re all shit, Mulvaney, and would never take bets like these.
