Obama covered up HHS report until after healthcare vote?
I can't say I'm surprised, but I didn't know the deceptions surrounding Obamacare went quite this far, to the point of smothering a government report. From The Prowler:

The economic report released last week by Health and Human Services, which indicated that President Barack Obama's health care "reform" law would actually increase the cost of health care and impose higher costs on consumers, had been submitted to the office of HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius more than a week before the Congressional votes on the bill, according to career HHS sources, who added that Sebelius's staff refused to review the document before the vote was taken.

"The reason we were given was that they did not want to influence the vote," says an HHS source. "Which is actually the point of having a review like this, you would think."
We imagined -- and said in an editorial -- that the report had probably been months in preparation. But that it could have actually been finished and on Sebelius's desk (and at the White House) a week before the vote reinforces the notion that dishonesty was the White House's most important tool in passing Obamacare....
