The Mirage of Health Care Scoring

October 13, 2009

A lot has been made of scoring a bill and is that

the best way to evaluate a bill?

Well, no. For instance, the Baucus Bill gets scored

well but it also raises taxes, makes new taxes and

fees. So, it can be budget neutral as it pays for

itself but does nothing to address costs.

Also, it cuts huge amounts from Medicare and

expands Medicaid which will hurt the states.
