The Congressional Budget Office has just sent a new letter that states that the health care law could “reduce their projected budget deficit by $30 billion over the next 10 years.”

The CBO also states that repealing health care reform — an idea Republicans are not only suggesting they’d do, but are actually running for office on! — would increase the deficit by around $455 billion.

That’s a swing of close to HALF A TRILLION DOLLARS.

Gosh, what a quandary for Republicans.  Hmmmm.  On the one hand they just can’t accept Obamacare (you know, actually doing something good for the American people) and giving Dems credit for doing anything right.  And yet, on the other hand, they are deficit hawks and are demanding to lower the federal deficit.

They say, if elected, they are going to repeal or defund health care reform — but then how do they explain the really huge increase in cost to the American taxpayers that they’d be causing?

Decisions, decisions.
