You challenged me on that front with a quote from a source that you found.

I mean the sarcasm was palpable! And so I answered your question from your own source.

So when you get done talking your own source reiterated the original point that I made. It's right there in black and white! In that "extremely simple english" that you are so fond of. Now it's not my fault if you read the headline and not the article. It's not my fault if you cherry-pick certain quotes in the article that fit your preferred narrative but don't bother to see how they relate to the rest of the article. Again, if you had we wouldn't be having this particular conversation because you wouldn't have chosen a quote that had "Bending the growth curve of health care spending:" as a sub-heading in the part you didn't get to. Just saying.

So where's the falling costs OAW? Or are you maintaining now that there were never supposed to be any?
