Well, here's the latest from Bullshit Mountain. Now they're saying that the numbers released by the administration and reported so faithfully by our very own Brainwrap are "cooked".

It means something to approximately 3 million young people who have health insurance through their parents' plan and it means something to the over 32.5 million seniors who have already received one or more free preventive services."
