According to the CBO, the new healthcare law will cost a trillion dollars over the next 10 yrs. or about 100 billion a year. Those are pretty big numbers but lets put it in perspective. The federal budget is 3.5 trillion dollars or 3,500 billion dollars. The cost of the new healthcare law will only add about 2.85% to federal spending, all of which is covered by increases in taxes and cost cuts. Fox News, the unofficial voice of the Republican Party continues to report that the new healthcare bill, will bankrupt the country. Would anyone like to explain just how this law is going to bankrupt the country?
