Looks like I will have to explain iT further. The latest CBO estimate of the cost is 2.6 trillion over the next 10 years, not 938 billion. As with all estimates having to do with the government, even this figure is probably low. Things of this kind usually end up several times the estimate. I believe the latest estimate came out in July.
The CBO said today that 30 million people would remain uninsured after the ACA .
There will be a great shortage of doctors, especially in the specialities. Young men and women will not go into medicine when the government dictates their salary. You may be able to see a family doctor for 3 minutes at a time.
Looks like you pulled your August 4 & 5 blogs off. Are you protecting Gerald Britt?
Larry, before you post a little cartoon like this it might be a good idea to do a little fact checking. When you post something like this this first thing I do is watch it, which I did. Second, I do a quick Google search to see if there is other relevant information out there. In about 10 seconds I found an online article in Forbes which states, "CBO now projects that the insurance coverage provisions of the law will cost $1,168 billion from 2012-2022, compared to a previous estimate of $1,252 billion." The entire article is also very interesting. You can find it here. http://www.forbes.com/sites/aroy/2012/07/24/cbo-guesstimates-that-obamacare-will-cover-3-million-less-people-after-the-supreme-court-saving-84-billion/Larry, I was really disappointed when a in a few posts back you basically dismissed the Heritage Foundation. Don't you ask us to read numerous articles from left leaning websites? You often come across as a person who just has his mind made up, but you want to change the minds of others. I don't view this as a character flaw, just a mistake. This is not intended to be a personal attack. I still respect the work you do.RC
