The graph does not lie its how you want to design the graph which changes how it looks. Stop looking at the pictures and actually read the graph and you will see its correct.

No one f'cking scales a graph from 17-24. It is deceptive and you know it. To the untrained eye (i.e. the general public) it looks like twice as much. Republicans selling FUD, nothing has changed.

I agree its deceptive but the article said it lied which is a lie itself. So the person writes an article calling someting a lie which tech. is not a lie and lies themself. OK. but you guys don't see anything wrong with that?

Wow now that is absolutely hilarious, but just down right ignorant from the right. I like how the utmost extreme measures are taken in attempt to legitimize their arguements. They play to the "thats what we want to believe" in their cause, but show just how desperate they are. Im sure the weak minded look at it and just shake their heads up and down in belief

The bad news is they had the graph in the draft version, the good news is it has been removed from the officially released pledge document.

Kind of how Obama said his health care bill would save us money but now is saying that it going to raise rates and he knew that all along. I guess he just forgot to mention it would actually increase cost but simple minded people believed him.

The Republican Party is not looking out for you in any way.

Unless you work for Big Oil or maybe Big Insurance. Or maybe you are a major shareholder in a Chemical Conglomerate?

If you are just an average citizen you are beyond simple minded if you think otherwise.

Wake up.

My rate has gone down.. Yours hasn't? Awww, that sucks...you should get a new insurance company or a new job. I guess health care has failed in reducing the cost curve. Repeal and Replace!

I'm not that sophisticated and can figure that out.

America will get single payer universal healthcare at some point and it won't be because of the existence of Obama or any other politician...it's a matter of economics and what people think will reduce their cost. With or without ObamaCare the cost of care is going up, even you are sophisticated enough to figure that out but choose to ignore that fact.

You are going to become like the rest of the world, buckle-up.
