Quote of the Day

"It is hard to find a Republican who will forthrightly defend the actual projected consequences of the bill... Untold numbers of people with preexisting conditions will be more vulnerable to losing coverage, financial ruin and, in certain cases, possibly death. Millions of lower-income people will lose coverage. Instead of arguing that these things are worth the trade-off of doing away with the mandate and the high-end taxes, Republicans who support the bill continue to deny that those things will happen at all, in the face of all evidence and expert analysis to the contrary."—Greg Sargent, in a piece for the Washington Post bluntly headlined: "The health bill is a total disaster. That's why Republicans keep lying about it."
