The first order of business for the new Republican led House of Representatives is to repeal, in toto, the health care reform bill passed by the previous congress.
They gave their repeal measure a real catchy name "Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act." Cool name HUH??
The problem is that, along with most of what Republicans want us to believe about the economy, they are lying again. Every bipartisan evaluation of the impact of the health care refrom bill estimates a very small impact on employment and most predict that more jobs will be added in the health care industries than will be lost elsewhere.
In otherwords, the President's health care reform law will increase employment.
Republicans have also often referred to the Health Care reform bill as a budget buster despite the independent analysis that indicates that the Health Care Reform bill will actuall reduce the deficit.
Its like they just have to lie about stuff. Its not like these independent studies are not well publicized. They include the CBO study. But they don't seem to care about what is real, they only care about whether or not people will catch them in their lies.
Its like their claim that tax cuts create jobs. Not exactly a lie since tax cuts do create a few jobs. But they will never acknowledge that dollar for dollar tax cuts are far LESS effective at creating job than direct spending like infrastructure projects and extending unemployment benefits.
They clearly don't actually care about creating jobs.
They do like making political points though.
By saying things that aren't true, over and over again, even after what they are saying is shown to be untrue.
And isn't that the definition of a lie.
