Democrats Hid Damning Report About Obamacare For One Month AFTER Bill Was Passed

So much for the promise below of "Honest Leadership and Open Government" (American Spectator via Gateway Pundit).

The economic report released last week by Health and Human Services, which indicated that President Barack Obama’s health care “reform” law would actually increase the cost of health care and impose higher costs on consumers, had been submitted to the office of HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius more than a week before the Congressional votes on the bill, according to career HHS sources, who added that Sebelius’s staff refused to review the document before the vote was taken.

“The reason we were given was that they did not want to influence the vote,” says an HHS source. “Which is actually the point of having a review like this, you would think.”

The analysis, performed by Medicare’s Office of the Actuary, which in the past has been identified as a “nonpolitical” office, set off alarm bells when submitted. “We know a copy was sent to the White House via their legislative affairs staff,” says the HHS staffer, “and there were a number of meetings here almost right after the analysis was submitted to the secretary’s office. Everyone went into lockdown, and people here were too scared to go public with the report.”

In the end, the report was released several weeks after the vote.
So these Democrats, the same ones who spent the last eight years accusing (with no evidence whatsoever) the Bush Administration of lying to America to go to war with Iraq and manipulating evidence to support going to war, lied to the American public by hiding information that was damning to Obama and the Democrat dream of socialized medicine. No wonder so many had to be bribed and coerced with goodies or phony executive orders.

Besides the housecleaning needed in Congress to get rid of this Democrat tyranny, there should be investigations into what they knew and when they knew it, as well as what kind of political pressure was put on to suppress this information.
