Hide the salami

Karl Rove mentions another piece of hot info from CBO boss Elmendorf, concerning the tax increases built into the Senate health care takeover bill.

Under questioning at a Senate hearing Tuesday, CBO Director Douglas Elmendorf admitted that the $500 billion in tax hikes in the Baucus bill would be passed onto consumers, jacking up insurance premiums. That undercuts the argument that Democratic reforms will make health care more affordable.

However, you cannot find Elmendorf’s actual testimony anywhere. Not on this topic.

Meanwhile, the Senate and White House controllers meet behind closed doors, the Death Überpanel.

WASHINGTON (AP) – White House officials and Senate Democrats are meeting in private to iron out differences on a health care overhaul that could affect every American. In public, they’re united by a common enemy: the health insurance industry.

That’s a lot of transparency: yeah, a lot of negative transparency.

These guys are getting to be better than Bill Clinton at playing Hide The Salami.

  1. I wouldn’t trust these scoundrels in D.C. to run my lawnmower let alone my health care. They are falsely obsessed with a power that doesn’t belong to them.

    In many instances, they spit on those who elected them to serve us, their fellow Americans.

    Despicable.
