Watch the piece. Count the number of things she makes up.
But we’re rating Bachmann’s claim that "President Obama’s bill won’t bring down the costs (of health care) for average Americans — or really for very few Americans, if any." And on that, our interpretation of the CBO numbers indicates she’s wrong.
Using the strict, unsubsidized figures, 60 percent of Americans in the private insurance market should see their premiums fall. And taking into account the subsidies, a full 70 percent would see their premiums fall. And almost 94 percent would see their premiums either fall or stay the same. No matter how you slice it, the overwhelming majority are likely to see a decline. So we find her claim False.
