The White House may have to waterboard its congressional allies to compel enough Democrats to support the health care bill and Congress will definitely have to raise taxes if the bill passes, CBS's Bob Schieffer insisted on Monday's The Early Show. [Audio available here.]
As liberals focus on extending coverage to millions of uninsured Americans, Schieffer departed from the liberal talking points by pointing out that the current bill would definitely force Congress to raise taxes."These Democrats don't know yet how much this bill is going to cost, they don't know exactly who's going to pay the taxes-there is no question some taxes are going up on this," he said.
