Promises vs. Reality

"President Barack Obama told the nation Saturday his health care overhaul is financially sound . . . “I want to be very clear: I will not sign on to any health plan that adds to our deficits over the next decade.”

"The president’s remarks were released late Friday, a few hours before an update by the Congressional Budget Office said the overall cost of the House bill would “result in a net increase in the federal budget deficit of $239 billion over the 2010-2019 period.”

Figures don't lie. Politicians? Not so much.
