Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell makes several statements that fly in the face of justifications of big-government spenders for the emergency health care bill:
The independent Congressional Budget Office estimates premiums to most Kentucky families will go up. Yet the bill is being sold by supporters as reducing premiums for families. Which is it?
Sen. McConnell, R-Kentucky, states a provision in the bill will cut $500 billion in Medicare coverage for seniors. Yet President Obama pledges: If you like the coverage you have, you can keep it. Which is it?
McConnell’s statement is clear and on the record. What’s needed in response: a clear statement from Obama’s crowd, including Kentucky Reps. John Yarmuth, D-Louisville, and Ben Chandler, D-Lexington, that not only can we keep our current coverage, but also that premiums will be lowered — for the health insurance plan we choose.
