CBO lowers "Obamacare" costs - Right wing media says it DOUBLED

The estimated gross cost of providing coverage to uninsured people will be a little higher than the CBO predicted a year ago but the net cost will be a little lower than in the CBO’s previous estimate.

One reason why: in its economic forecast the CBO now assumes that “the unemployment rate is higher throughout the projection period than it was in last year’s forecast.”

Rush Limbaugh lead this talking point on his show today.....and all of the chorus followed - as usual
The fact that the cost of Obamacare has doubled should come as no surprise, Limbaugh said, insisting that liberal, social programs “always cost far more than what we are told when the legislation is signed.”

"b-i-itchy " Rush Limbaugh said today

I heard this going to lunch and my jaw actually dropped.

BTW- he lead the show pretending to be reading an offer for a *NEW* video sponsorship - as if he didn't have time to read it before the show started.

His own transcripts doesn't really illustrate how cleverly he thought he could use this word and get away with it. He said "B.I. - itchy". Of course the intent was clear.

Transcript - I am posting the link simply to show authenticity.

Now, the people that run Ashley Madison are out saying they're willing to advertise on our program. There are stories and advertising blogs about this, but we have not accepted it. Right here in the Washington Post. Ms. Petri, I don't know who feeds you your information -- I have a pretty good guess -- but you might want to double-check here because you've written something that's patently false, it's an out-and-out lie complete with your b-i-itchy opinion in it, and it is untrue. We are not running commercials. We wouldn't accept commercials. We have rejected their offers from outfits that do this kind of thing, provide a way for you to cheat on your spouse. We have never knowingly had this company in our program.

The shady past of LifeLock, Rush Limbaugh's sole remaining tech advertiser

LifeLock, the sole remaining tech advertiser on Rush Limbaugh's radio show, has a very shady past, including being fined $12 million by the Federal Trade Commission for deceptive business practices.

According to IDG News, LifeLock's claims that it would "prevent unauthorized changes to customers' address information, that it constantly monitored activity on customer credit reports, and that it would ensure that a customer always would receive a telephone call from a potential creditor before a new account was opened," were flat-out false, according to the FTC.

There's much more than that. LifeLock was sued for corporate identity theft by its competitor Namesafe, who claimed that LifeLock stole the company's trademark and also diverted online traffic from Namesafe to LifeLock.

Then there's the shady background of LifeLock founder Robert J. Maynard (who has since resigned), who according to an investigation by the Phoenix New Times had been jailed for unpaid $16,000 in casino markers to the Mirage casino in Las Vegas. The newspaper also reported that a previous firm he set up was sued by the state of Arizona for fraud and misreprentation.
