    •  No, it wasn't. (0+ / 0-)

      In fact, on March 20, the day before the vote in the House, the author of the memo wroteMitch McConnell to say that the scoring wouldn't be complete in time for the vote.

      But even if your conspiracy theory, hinging as it does on the word of one anonymous guy who may have been an HHS employee talking to a writer of a right-wing propaganda rag (original source for this claim therein) who is known for anonymously sourcing Things That Are Wrong, was true despite all evidence to the contrary, Time's Swampland blog points out that while the numbers are different, the conclusion is the same as in the nearly identical memo the same guy released in early January.

      So what you're proposing to me is a grand conspiracy headed by an accountant to suppress old information. And you're doing it based on the word of a possibly invented source who might have been talking to a publication exactly as credible as the Limbaugh Letter, and you're doing it here.
