    Now, double that projection and you're probably pretty close to the actual cost.

    The Examiner? So how will this turn out to be total Pubcrappe? So that's 200 billion a year to cover everyone and finally get a grip on skyrocketing prices and insurance scams...still a great deal...maybe competition and transparency will lead to savings the CBO doesn't imagine, as they're crazy about trends, maybe Pubs have perverted it....Stay tuned...

    I see a Republican Campaign ad in the making. At least it will be honest.

    We did see it coming, only problem was, this is exactly what they wanted, another entitlement to collapse the system, they are all communists. There should be a treason charge for there shit, but there wont, because both the left and the right are all in it together and we cant do shit about it, the left infiltrated the right "Murkowski, etc" throughout the years, and hoodwinked us, we are fucked, they are all communists.

    Well the first clue these idiots didn't know what they were doing much less the financial implications was continually claiming 50 million uninsured!
    When 10 million are counted as uninsured ARE NOT citizens!
    14 million are already covered by Medicaid but the most egregious is counting
    18 million people UNDER age 34 making over $50,000 that because THEY don't want
    employer health coverage deductions and more importantly PAY out of pocket they
    are counted totally wrongly "uninsured"!

    Thus leaving truly 8 million that should be covered somehow AND could have through Obamacare simply by taxing Lawyers as it taxed tanning salons!
    10% of $100 billion lawyer fees would provide health coverage for the 8 million!
    Wouldn't screw up our health system as it is NOW doing with more employers wanting to drop coverage or at minimum increasing employee deductibles!

    All because these IDIOTS lied about how many, how much it would cost and because these idiots had $300 million donated by lawyers to Obama/Congress in 2008!

    And of course TORT reform would have been coupled with the 10% tax i.e. for every $100 billion the $600 billion in "defensive medicine cost would be reduced a percentage of lawyer taxes would be reduced.. thus incentivizing Lawyers to stop chasing ambulances and causing the $600 billion a year in "defensive medicine"!

    They knew exactly what they where doing. The end game is to collapse the system with entitlement programs, if you cannot see it, you are fucken blind. Look at how this fucken man treats our economy, the proof is in the pudding.

    So, this is no surprise as the CBO only estimates 10 years in the future- so OF COURSE the estimate goes up as we approach implementation, and doesn't take into account any savings from competition, transparency, regulations involved, or any regulations expected or possible, and of course the entire gigantic Pub Propaganda machine's pants are on fire spinning this for their ignorant dupes, while no one else is paying any attention...carry on, morons/corporate tools...:cuckoo::razz::razz:
