Do you remember when you were told that if you liked your health care plan, you could keep it?

Do you remember when you were told that ObamaCare would be deficit-neutral, not adding a penny to our exploding national debt?

We have to wonder if former DNC Chairman Howard Dean remembers those claims, because he recently confirmed what we already knew: Both claims are untrue.

Appearing on MSNBC's Morning JoeDean had this to say:

"There was a McKinsey study, which the Democrats don't like, but I do, and I think its true. Most small businesses are not going to be in the health insurance business anymore after this thing goes into effect."

The McKinsey study to which Dean refers directly contradicts the claims of ObamaCare supporters that you can keep your health care plan if you like it, and that it will be deficit-neutral.  The study estimates about 30% of employers will drop their health care plans for their employees because of the staggering costs ObamaCare will impose on them.

That's a lot of people who probably like their current health care plan who won't be able to keep it.

The McKinsey study goes on to claim that if their prediction of 30% of employers dropping health care coverage is correct, then the price tag of ObamaCare will rise by almost $1 trillion.

There's nothing deficit-neutral about that.

As we've said all along, ObamaCare — in addition to being an unwanted and unnecessary government take-over of private health care decisions — will inflict enormous costs on taxpayers, all while limiting their choices in their health care.

We'd like to thank Howard Dean for confirming that we were indeed correct.  He didn't scream it, but he got his point across.

The harmful impact of ObamaCare will be enormous.    It must be repealed.
