Obamacare

Burr leans on bent think-tank to support his ACA alternative bill

Partisan politics and pseudo-scientific bullshit:

I certainly believe that both the Obama campaign and administration have sought to construct a political narrative that dispenses with inconvenient facts. The campaign narrative was that the U.S. economy was crumbling, broken by Republicans, and in need of being “rebuilt.”

That narrative supported “investments” — progressive-speak for massive federal spending — government takeovers where desired (health care) or needed by unions (autos), and massive deficits.

You're right, I put this diary together backwards, just so you browsers would get a taste of the "expert" that Senator Richard Burr hopes will give his horribly bad legislation a whiff of legitimacy:

Misogynist GOP Healthcare Plan

NC's own, Senator Richard Burr, is working on the health plan Republicans plan to propose as a replacement for Obamacare. One of the things setting the two plans apart is maternity coverage: Obamacare requires it, the Burr plan does not. Evidently, Senator Burr doesn't think health insurance needs to cover maternity care, even though about 54% of registered voters in North Carolina are women.
