Obamacare: The Lies and the Real Cost

TPNN (1/27/15) noted that “During a speech in 2009, Obama pledged that not only would his signature legislation of Obamacare cost ‘only’ $900 billion, or $30,000 per person insured, but also promised that it would not add one dime to the deficit.  Both of these claims have been revealed in a new CBO report to be lies.

“The Daily Mail broke down the report that demonstrates just how much of a negative economic impact Obamacare will have on the American taxpayer. At the same time, it also shows that Obama and the Democrats lied to the people as they were passing this monstrosity along party lines.

  • “Every insured person under Obamacare will cost the American taxpayer $50,000.
  • Taxpayers will be forced by the government to spend $1.993 trillion ($1,993,000,000,000) over the next 10 years on Obamacare to provide subsidies to offset the cost of Obamacare for some and expand Medicaid and CHIP.
  • $643 billion in new taxes and penalties thrust upon the American taxpayer will be taken in.
  • The net cost will be $1.35 trillion to result in between 24 million and 27 million fewer Americans being uninsured.
  • Despite the massive cost, between 29 million and 31 million Americans will still be uninsured.

“The data was buried in a 15-page section of the CBO’s new budget outlook.”

The Heritage Foundation has offered additional data.

About Doc

I am a Psychologist and a veteran of the Vietnam War. I work with abused children and with agencies which try to both prevent abuse and to empower those who have been abused. I feel strongly about child abuse and take every action I can to prevent it and to support the children I work with who have experienced it. I also feel strongly about politics and especially the course being taken by our nation. I believe that America is at a critical point in its development. How we answer the challenges from Islamic fascists and from our own internal enemies in the media, government, and academia will determine America’s future and the future of our children. I believe that if we don’t take the correct course now, America will go the way of Europe and that we will not reach the potential set out by our founding fathers. I believe that it is now getting serious. My gravitar is from "Darkman".
