Fox News Chyron Distorts CBO Finding That Health Insurance Premiums Would Decrease Under Senate Health Care Bill

Reported by Ellen - December 1, 2009 -

In reality, the CBO concluded that health insurance premiums would substantially decrease for the majority of Americans purchasing coverage in the individual market and maintain or lower premiums in the small and large employer markets.
