    I just cannot wait for the libtards to come in here and say that almost doubling the cost of Obamacare is not a big deal.

    Even though I believe that the US health care system needs very serious reform and is gouging Americans to the point it's a threat to our economy,,,,,$1.76 trillion is a lot to swallow. But then so are the mandates.
    However, the US deserves and should demand completive prices based on what other countries are paying. There is no excuse for Americans to be forced to pay the highest health care prices in the world by a long shot for a basic life or death necessity.

    From that link:


    This does not even take into account the cost to the states, which will be even greater.


    Since most states have a balanced budget requirement, you are all going to see your state taxes skyrocket. And the federal budget is going to crack in half and sink this country.


    Repeal this piece of crap. Seriously.

    Might want to read the actual document, champ. The CBO is projecting spending on the ACA to be lower than previously projected and the deficit reductions to be higher.

    And, pertinent to your signature, today's estimates now show a decrease of $97 billion in projected costs for exchange subsidies and related spending over the 10-year budget window (the very source of the $111 billion controversy in the White House's FY13 budget).

    Naw. They will either ignore it or ask what your alternative is.

    With or without ObamaCare, the cost is curving upward.

    So you better have a smart solution.

    The average cost to states per new enrollee is lower under today's CBO projections than it was under prior ones. They explain why in today's report (essentially, the higher federal match rates will apply to more people than previously assumed):

    How much will the deaths of tens of thousands of Americans from lack of health care cost?
