Republicans Celebrate The Affordable Care Act's One-Year Anniversary By Reviving Old Lies

This morning on Fox News, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) declared that President Obama and supporters of the Affordable Care Act "keep saying things that aren't true" about the law, while Republicans continue to "put the facts out and our facts are backed up by the authorities." Of course, Hatch has it exactly backwards, which was evident today as Republicans commemorated the health care law's one-year anniversary by repeating worn out lies about a "government takeover" that will destroy jobs, cut Medicare benefits, increase the deficit, and raise premiums. Let's examine the real facts about the Affordable Care Act.

Reminder: Republican Hysteria About "The Death Tax" Is Based On Misinformation

Since the White House and Senate Republican leaders announced the framework of a deal to extend the Bush tax cuts for two years, the provisions regarding the estate tax have drawn criticism from Democrats and Republicans alike. Under the deal, the estate tax would be set at 35 percent and would only apply to estates larger than $5 million. While Democrats reportedly oppose those generous parameters, many congressional Republicans insist that any "death tax" at all is unacceptable and even "cruel." In that stance, Republicans are wrong both on policy — even at a stiffer $3.5 million threshold, the estate tax only impacted the wealthiest one of every 400 households in 2009 — and politics. The Bush tax cuts gradually reduced the estate tax from 55 percent in 2001 to 45 percent in 2009, and then sprung a political trap by completely eliminating the tax for just one year before allowing it to spring back to 55 percent in 2011. This provision, which one American Enterprise Institute scholar called "absurd-on-its-face," means that Republicans who criticize the estate tax provisions of the proposed deal are in essence opposing a 36 percent cut in the estate tax, and a threshold even more generous than the 1-in-400-estates tax proposed in President Obama's budgets.

Rep. Steve King Decries Supposed "Invasion" Of 11,000 Illegal Immigrants Per Night

Speaking on the House floor today, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) claimed that 11,000 illegal immigrants cross into the United States every single night. That would mean that more than four million people enter the United States illegally every year. King's numbers, however, are way off. The Pew Hispanic Center estimates that approximately 500,000 illegal immigrants per year — or less than 1,400 per night — came to the United States between 2005 and 2008.
