NYT Lie: No One Has to Spend More Than 8% of Income for ACA Coverage

November 17th, 2014 12:14 AM
On Saturday (at NewsBusters; at BizzyBlog), I noted the hypocritical fury of Linda Greenhouse at the New York Times that the Supreme Court has taken on the King v.

I need to address another item of Greenhouse gas contained therein, namely her claim that the Affordable Care Act…
