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".

Let it be known: Today, March 30th 2014, we won the Obamacare Wars. When they stoop to saying that our figures are "lies", then that intrinsically implies that the news is good news. When that happens, the only way to fight it is to attack its credibility. You don't do that if the news is bad. If it's legitimately bad, you prop up the bad news as further evidence of your point.

Be prepared to counter this latest wave of right wing spin. In the meantime, here's a graph I want y'all to see (courtesy of Brainwrap):

4:06 PM PT: h/t to conspiracy for this update...

So Sen John Barrasso, R-WY, said this, which was what Fox picked up on earlier:

"I don't think it means anything," Barrasso said on "Fox News Sunday" about the news that 6 million people had signed up for health care plans. "I think they’re cooking the books on this."
The DNC's response to this is priceless:
"It means something to the 105 million Americans who no longer have a lifetime cap on essential benefits, and it means something to the parents of over 17.6 million children who no longer have to worry about their kids being denied insurance because of pre-existing conditions. 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."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
