OH 07: Steve Austria's Op-Ed Lie
"The House plan is about 1,000 pages long and according to the Lewin Group, a nonpartisan actuarial group, it could cause as many as 114 million individuals to lose their current health care insurance due to the government-run plan reimbursing at Medicare rates in the legislation. The House bill also could mean 4.7 million people will lose their jobs as a result of taxes on businesses that are not able to offer employees health insurance."
The Lewin Group? A non partisan actuarial group? The Lewin Group is a wholly owned subsidiary of United Health Group, one of the profit gouging insurance companies getting rich denying coverage to Americans .
Though perhaps we can't hold Austria totally responsible for this lie, considering his history of plagiarism he probably didn't write this op-ed anyway.
