The Obama administration is lying to the American public with every set of budget numbers and economic projections it puts out, says talk radio host Rush Limbaugh.
A report released Friday by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) says that President Barack Obama’s 2013 budget will add some $6.7 trillion in deficits over the next decade, almost doubling the federal debt by 2022. The administration, meanwhile, had said its proposal would actually cut the debt by $3.2 trillion.
That followed a CBO report released Thursday that predicted up to 20 million Americans could lose employer-provided insurance under Obamacare – a staggering figure for a law that was supposed to move the nation toward near-universal coverage.
“So we have the Obama administration lying about the cost of healthcare now lying about the cost of Obama’s budget, not to mention the President lying about oil and green energy and all of that,” said Limbaugh. “It’s stunning! Phony numbers!”
“The bottom line is that virtually every set of number that we get from the Obama administration simply are not true.”
