Yes, Obamacare DOES reduce the deficit

[1]I don’t know how many times conservatives feel they have to lie [2] about this, but the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office confirmed yet again [3] yesterday that the Affordable Care Act will reduce the federal deficit.  Specifically it will mean for the deficit a “net reduction of $84 billion.”  The facts won’t be enough for some people of course.  They’ll make up their own figures and yell from the rooftops the opposite conclusion – one that just happens to be more in line with their political views.
