    Lawmaker Wants Answers After Cost Estimate For Health Insurance Aid Rises By $111B | Fox News
    So do I.


    Yeah. Can't imagine why they were buried in that deep, huh. :rolleyes:


    I find this difficult to believe, based on the track record of this administration.

    1.Obamacare will collect more than $500 billion in new taxes and take $575 billion from Medicare over the next ten years.

    a. Two new entitlements, plus a big Medicaid expansion, are created to reduce the number of uninsured, at a cost of at least $2.3 trillion- that’s TRILLION- over the first ten years of full implementation.

    2. With each passing year new taxes will be imposed. As disclosed on the attached chart from the
    California Hospital Association:

    • 2011: A 2.5% excise tax is imposed on pharmaceuticals. (This is part of the plan to pay for the
    reform law.) This cost – which will be in the billions of dollars - will be passed on to health care
    providers, primarily hospitals, who already operate with very thin margins, and will be under
    great financial pressure to raise their rates to pay for it, with resulting price pressure on health
    insurance premiums.
    • 2012: That excise tax increases to 3%.
    • 2013: A separate 2.9% excise tax on medical devices will begin. The same pass-through will take
    place, creating the same pressures on providers and on insurance premiums.
    • 2014: An $8 billion fee on health insurance premiums kicks in. Obviously consumers will bear
    this tax and their premiums will rise.
    Because of all these costs, Obamacare is generally unsustainable. Here is one study that addresses that
    issue:

    I never doubted it for a minute. You know, "We have to pass it before we know whats in it."

    How could anyone doubt it after the way Pelosi, Reid and crew played with the number to get CBO approval for that clusterfuck of a bill.

    No. This thing is going to cost the taxpyaers up the ass. Well those of us who pay taxes.

    We can only hope that the SCOTUS finds this peice of shit unconstitutional and it is gone.
