CBO: ObamaCare Cost Nearly Double the Initial Projection

The arrow points to the size of a man

The Washington Examiner reports the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has, um, revised their estimate of how much the unconstitutional Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare) is going to gouge the American people if the U.S. Supreme Court doesn’t do the right thing and strike it down for the affront to liberty it is.

You may recall that President Barack Obama and the other Leftists in congress told us it would cost less than a trillion dollars.  Most of us knew that was complete bunk even then, but now the CBO admits it’s more like $1.76 TRILLION over 10 years (and I’d be willing to wager a significant percentage of that $1.76 trillion that this estimate is lowballed, too.

Interestingly, as Allahpundit at Hot Air reminds us, the only way they could reach their original under-a-trillion figure was to “engineer” a 10-year “cost” with only six years of providing benefits.

Trampling the U.S. Constitution…providing abortion despite claims it wouldn’t…trashing religious freedom…defining deviancy down…and costing us nearly twice the original estimate to do for Americans what Americans should and can do much better for themselves.

This tyrant and all his Leftist cronies need to be thrown out of Washington with all possible haste.
