Skip to comments.ObamaCare's Costs Are Soaring
Posted on 03/20/2012 8:16:26 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
One year after the passage of ObamaCare, this paper published an op-ed I wrote ("ObamaCare and Carey's Heart") about how America's health-care system saved my daughter's life, and describing how implementing this law will limit innovation, lead to rationing, and lower the quality of care. Now, two years out, I would like to focus on the budgetary disaster.
As a candidate, Barack Obama repeatedly claimed that his health-care plan would lower annual family health-insurance premiums by $2,500 before the end of his first term as president. But the Kaiser Family Foundation recently reported that the average family premium has increased $2,200 since the start of this administration.
Then there is the higher cost to taxpayers. The CBO's initial estimate in March 2010 of ObamaCare's budget impact showed it saving money, reducing the federal deficit by $143 billion in the first 10 years. But that positive estimate was largely the product of gimmicks inserted into the bill by Democratic leaders to hide the law's true cost.

It is exactly what he wants. Bankrupt America. Then he sells it to the Izzlumic countries for 15 cents on the dollar. He wants to destroy America. Sadly 46% think he is doing a good job. They are correct at that thinking. A good job of destroying America.
This is such a mess. All of it. Eff you, you liberal fools who put this dangerous putz in the oval office.
Sen. Johnson is one to watch. I sense a Ronald Reagan in him.
Certainly it will limit any new innovations.
When you pay a heart surgeon the same thing you pay a foot doctor , pretty soon there will be no heart surgeons.
It doesn’t take a genious to figure that out.
The only ones making out under Obamacare are America’s freeloaders.
