No, Comma, Annoyingly Authoritative Counterspin

I made a certain prediction in the last post. And now I give you my prophecy coming true:

No, CBO did not say Obamacare will kill 2 million jobs

No, the latest CBO report doesn’t say Obamacare kills jobs

No, the CBO Report Does Not Say that Obamacare Will Kill 2 Million Jobs

No, the CBO Did Not Find That the ACA Kills Jobs

No, Obamacare isn’t handing out 2 million pink slips

No! The Affordable Care Act Will Not ‘Nuke’ 2.4 Million Jobs. [ed. note: I’d like to give this one credit for going with the exclamation point after ‘No’ rather than the traditional comma]

I was waiting for the Yglesias contribution:

No, Obamacare Doesn’t Actually Kill Jobs, and It’s Not “Devastating” for Democrats

Comment by Matt

He (wisely) opted for stuff like “How the CBO Thinks Obamacare Will Kill Jobs”

Maybe there’s hope that, because he’s such a trend-setter, all these other outlets will knock it off with the “No, ____” headlines as well…

For a second there I was concerned that you may have actually read something from the daily kos.


I can’t imagine that the ensuing brain damage would be worth any benefit from having read it.

[…] A nice example of the Cathedral spin machine in action. […]
