HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius Hid Damaging Medicare Actuary Report for One Month

While Democrats were touting deficit reduction claims, based on a CBO report, in the run up to the Obamacare vote, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was sitting on a report, from the nonpolitical government's Medicare’s Office of the Actuary, which found the Democrats health care bill actually bent the cost curve up and would cause 14 million Americans to lose employer based health coverage.

The economic report released last week by Health and Human Services, which indicated that President Barack Obama’s health care “reform” law would actually increase the cost of health care and impose higher costs on consumers, had been submitted to the office of HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius more than a week before the Congressional votes on the bill...

The analysis, performed by Medicare’s Office of the Actuary, which in the past has been identified as a “nonpolitical” office, set off alarm bells when submitted. “We know a copy was sent to the White House via their legislative affairs staff,” says the HHS staffer, “and there were a number of meetings here almost right after the analysis was submitted to the secretary’s office. Everyone went into lockdown, and people here were too scared to go public with the report.”
