Sibelius "Saves" $575 Billion in Medicare? Nope.

Sibelius announced that ObamaCare would save Medicare about $575Bn over the next 10 years.

She lied.

Set aside the irony that in a conference call held to highlight CMS estimates on Medicare, Sebelius was questioning CMS methodology. Her statement that the CBO had taken a different view on this is demonstrably false. On several occasions, the CBO has determined that you can’t double-count Medicare savings.

It's the same lie that Obama tried to run past Paul Ryan--who nailed him on it.

What's new? Democrats lie, old folks will die.
