You may have missed it with the CBO scoring and vote on the Senate health care bill, but the Doctor fix passed the house last Thursday. I wrote about the Doctor Fix shenanigans last week. Whenever you hear the media state the cost of health care legislation as scored by the CBO, be sure to tack on at least $210 billion to that number.
On a related note, I like to see what the mindless left are up to every now and then, so I stopped on over at Media Matters. They had a post on how Fox & Friends had overstated the cost of health care by including the Doctor Fix in the overall cost of health care legislation, which is the honest thing to do I might add. Fox & Friends even mentioned that they were adding the Doctor Fix to the cost of the bills.
Here is the best part. The article wasn't actually about how Fox incorrectly reported anything. It was about how hypocritical the right is for complaining about the Doctor Fix deception. However, it is clear from the mindless drone responses at the bottom that none of the lefty drones actually read any of the information. Here is a taste!

I'm sorry mindless drone. The Media Matters article plainly defends that Fox's analysis was correct.
