JANE FOX, Pasco
I can't tell you how upset I get when I hear people saying "Obamacare" will add X number of dollars to the deficit.
Please, people, check your facts. If you want to talk about numbers (and at the same time sound like you know what you are talking about), please read the Congressional Budget Office's analysis of health care legislation, and you'll notice on page 2 the Affordable Care Act and health care provisions of the Reconciliation Act will decrease the deficit by $210 billion from between now and 2021.
