Soon after the Supreme Court upheld the bulk of Obamacare, the Congressional Budget Office came out with a new estimate for its cost. No surprise: As before, CBO said it would reduce, not raise, the federal deficit. This put a warm glow in the heart of every Democrat and Obamacare supporter.
Too bad itís a fairy tale. The point must be emphasized: This law is a fiscal calamity.

As costs for families are predicted at much higher levels than thought.....the turn on the demorats is going to be huge!!

The IRSís assumption that the cheapest plan for a family will cost $20,000 per year is found in examples the IRS gives to help people understand how to calculate the penalty they will need to pay the government if they do not buy a mandated health plan.

The examples point to families of four and families of five, both of which the IRS expects in its assumptions to pay a minimum of $20,000 per year for a bronze plan.

The clock is ticking,'rats.

Patience is a good thing!! LMAO

The free lifetime health care benefits of members of congress should be stripped and they should have to find insurance on the open market like most citizens. They will then realize just how immoral a for profit health care system really is. Thanks to republicrats like max baucus who has taken over $4 million from insurance and drug companies meaningful health care reform was impossible. The drug and insurance companies wrote the current 'obamacare' health care laws! Anyone who thinks that democrats actually care about the working man has been deceived. Democrats are corporatists and just as bad as rethugs.
