Cost of Obamacare Skyrockets from Billions to Trillions

The cost of government programs is always underestimated. This is on purpose. If the president and congress actually reported what a program will really cost, the legislation would never pass. There isn’t a single government program where the cost projections have been accurate.

Social Security and Medicare are two perfect examples. Both are teetering on insolvency.  It’s only because the government can force people to pay more that they remain economically viable. It doesn’t hurt that the government can print money when needed. Now we’re being told that Obamacare costs were woefully underestimated. Here’s a report in the Washington Examiner that lays it all out:

“President Obama's national health care law will cost $1.76 trillion over a decade, according to a new projection released today by the Congressional Budget Office, rather than the $940 billion forecast when it was signed into law.

Usually we don’t find out about the cost overruns until we’re deep in the program and it’s too late to get out. We know now. Will the president and congress pull the plug on another government boondoggle before we are swamped by its mass? Not surprisingly,

“Democrats employed many accounting tricks when they were pushing through the national health care legislation, the most egregious of which was to delay full implementation of the law until 2014, so it would appear cheaper under the CBO's standard ten-year budget window and, at least on paper, meet Obama's pledge that the legislation would cost "around $900 billion over 10 years." When the final CBO score came out before passage, critics noted that the true 10 year cost would be far higher than advertised once projections accounted for full implementation.

Notice that the true costs won’t be noticed until after the 2012 election. The Democrats hoped they could push through the program before its costs would be noticed by the healthcare-going public. One more thing. These are still GOVERNMENT projections. The numbers need to be doubled . . . probably tripled to get an accurate picture of what we' are facing.

Will these new numbers mean anything for those who voted for the program? Not in the least. In fact, what we may begin to see is more congressmen deciding not to run this year. They're afraid that they might be blamed for the inevitable train wreck if they're still in office.

The most infuriating thing about Obamacare is that the GOP candidates are hardly talking about it anymore. Romney wants to avoid it because of Romneycare, the Massachusetts state program that the architects of Obamacare used to model their national program. Let’s see if the GOP jumps on these cost projections to make them a top-tier campaign issue.

Unfortunatley, there are a lot of Democrat voters who don’t care what something costs because they aren’t going to pay for it. “Just tax the rich more to make up for the shortfall.”

    Gee......Who would've thought that a cabal of corrupt, overly-ambitious, unprincipled, double-dealing, opportunistic, mendacious, and downright contemptible politicians would pull off a covert opps to deceive us all?

    Who would've thought that a ''health care'' bill would not only make us all sick, but kill us?
     
    No surprise here that the real cost of this monstrous piece of legislation won't be realized until after the election. Very crafty. It was a calculated move by a lying, power-crazed president who will stop at nothing to retain his job. Concealed and buried in over 2000 pages of political jargon and governmentese, the real price we will all pay for having elected an anti-American, anti-capitalist president is yet to be completely revealed.

    Using the blade of juggled numbers and a kafkaesque scheme, the people we elected to represent us have intentionally and with great precision, inflicted a near-fatal wound and as we watch our liberty, the lifeblood of our nation, pouring out, we wonder what happened.

    The magnitude of this life and death struggle cannot be overstated.
     
    Slapping on a bandaid of compromise and half-hearted measures won't work.

    Capitulation certainly won't save us.

    It will take a critical response of decisive and unremitting dedication to the cause of seeing every last one of our corrupt officials summarily ejected from their seats of power.
     
    It will take becoming informed and willing to share the information with everyone we come in contact with. It is not a task for the faint-hearted or thin-skinned because we can expect to be bombarded with epithets, insults, ridicule and various indignities...so...come prepared.

    It's imperative that we win....and by the grace of God, we will.

Slash government payrolls, do away with welfare, and get rid of the parasitism we see every time we turn around.

  • Dusty1

    This is the most evil legislation that I can remember ever coming into existence.  Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have blood on their hands for this.  We The People have been paying into Obamacare for four years already, and it was specifically designed to be backloaded, because if we were hit with the cost from day one it would have failed outright.  The stuff will really hit the fan in 2014, when the 2012 election will be behind us.  If not repealed, this will certainly bankrupt the country and destroy healthcare as we know it in the process.

    • http://twitter.com/BradNova Brad Nova

       There is some sort of trickery going on here. The original CBO estimate said that the healthcare law would reduce the deficit by $400 billion.

      • http://twitter.com/BradNova Brad Nova

        That is why President Obama seems like such a mediocre fiscal manager. Last year, the CBO analyzed his budget proposal and concluded it would add $2.7 trillion to its baseline deficit 

        His apparent extravagance is because the bulk of his suggested measures
        that would expand the deficit over the next ten years are precisely
        those proposals, like extension of most of the Bush tax cuts, the AMT
        repeal and no reduction in Medicare reimbursements, all of which garner
        bipartisan support. That fact is what makes Republican tantrums over
        Obama's fiscal policies so psychologically interesting: the Kenyan
        Muslim socialist usurper has largely proposed what they themselves
        advocate.

        • http://twitter.com/BradNova Brad Nova

           Mitt Romney, who touts his business acumen as a prime qualification to
          be president, makes Obama appear as tight-fisted as Grover Cleveland by
          comparison. Romney's initial tax plan
          was as follows: those making more than $1 million a year would receive
          an average federal income tax cut of $145,000 by 2015. This scheme would
          increase deficits by about $180 billion annually by 2015, according to
          the Tax Policy Center. But apparently that was not enough to satisfy his
          contributors, so at the end of February 2012, Romney added a 20 percent
          cut in all income tax rates and a repeal of the AMT. The Center estimated
          that the 20 percent rate cut would add an additional $150 billion to
          the deficit in 2015 alone. The policy group did not calculate a ten-year
          estimate, but it is safe to say that Romney's new and improved
          boondoggle would add about $3 trillion over ten years on top of Obama's
          pre-existing plan to increase the deficit by $2.7 trillion.

        • http://twitter.com/BradNova Brad Nova

          But as the old Veg-O-Matic ads would say, "Wait! - there's more!" In
          order to pander to the militarism in the GOP base (and potential
          contributors in the military-industrial complex), Romney advocates increasing military spending to 4 percent of gross domestic product (GDP). Over the next decade, that would add another $2.6 trillion to the deficit.

        • http://twitter.com/BradNova Brad Nova

           To summarize: Romney would accept most of Obama's additions to the
          deficit (say, $2 trillion), add $3.0 trillion in additional tax cuts,
          and then top it off with $2.6 trillion of increased military spending.
          Therefore, he would add well over $7 trillion to a ten-year future
          baseline deficit that is already $3.1 trillion

        • http://twitter.com/BradNova Brad Nova

           Santorum's tax cuts would add $6 trillion to the deficit over the next
          ten years. The $2.3 trillion in spending cuts that he does specify would
          still leave him far short of making up for the revenue loss his tax
          cuts would cause. As for his supplementary claim that he would balance
          the budget in five years by cutting an additional $5 trillion in
          spending, the Committee considers this proposal unscorable, since it is
          nothing more than an assertion without a plan. Since the entire sum of
          domestic discretionary spending (including law enforcement, homeland
          security, food and drug safety and air traffic control) over the next
          five years totals only $2.9 trillion, he could abolish all domestic
          government activity and still not balance the budget.

           So, what you're really saying it that Romney would ALMOST add as much debt as Obama already has.
          Keep in mind the deficit for Feb 2012 alone was the largest in our history, breaking even last years thought-impossible to top record.
          Bush's deficits were mainly blamed on the war in Iraq...but it's over now, so why is the deficit increasing faster now than when the war was on? Was Iraq saving us money?

       Not only that but, it is written in it that illegals get to go to the head of the line.  Meanwhile the Seniors are left with marxist medicine.   This means that they have to wait for an appointment to see a doctor and see what is wrong.  Then the doctor will try "for the good of the state" to talk them out of getting cured.   After that they are given an appointment far in the future to get treated.   They may be dead before ever getting treatment that they deserve.   First this is how England ran their medical programs so it is not science fiction.    Obama's lowering of cost's must be that the Seniors will be dead before ever seeing a doctor.

    • Petiteet

      I am not surprised, and I predict the cost will be well above 3 trillions in less than 10 years.  Healthcare is the most expensive product we are purchasing right now, and with the entitlement behavior of the people, the cost is grossly understated by this socialist administration.  Everybody will flood the system looking for "free care", and thinking everything is covered by other people who are richer than them.  Just think of the fraud and abuse by then.  Only fools believe this will cost less than 1 trillion in 10 years.  We get to a trillion in probably the first 2 years.

        • John

          Cutting taxes allows people to spend and invest in business.  More spending and creating jobs creates more streams of taxable income, versus taxing more of the limited amount of people that currently have jobs.  If we could reduce the unemployment, federal cashflow would increase.  Another idea would be to stop paying a federal tax refund to those that don't pay federal taxes.  There's another source of income for the federal government.  Why would we want to give up our right to bear arms?  We shouldn't give away any of our constitutional rights even though this administration would prefer to take them away.

      Well Im hear to tell you that this Obama care has done nothing, my insurance has doubled, not only that my 64 year old mother cannot get health insurance, noone will insure her, because she smokes. Obamas new law, so tell me how I can help my mother???   You know what, there is help but you got to get off your butt and find it!!!  Hear in Texas we have low income clinics, that is just 20 dollars a visit and you dont pay no more then up to 20 dollars for perscriptions, I mean you can get 5 expensive perscriptions and its just 20 dollars, they get mammagrams for free, if they have cancer, they have places in Houston that will get you help for free. the rose clinic takes on low income and cures breast cancer, maybe other cancers too. But Texas has help that is affordable.  Maybe your state dont look after the poor, and maybe thats where you need to go is in your own state. see i believe it is a state problem. Washington is apart of the problem not the solution, it keeps people in bondage, I believe America has the best healthcare in the whole world, and it is being down graded. Think of all the money that people give to charities. just for this very reason. Because there is help out there. I dont know what you people are thinking, I mean is it the hand out??? Pure laziness?  I actually liked my healthcare untill obama started making demands. We changed healthcare because United Healthcare is all about Obamacare. It used to be awesme now its a fly by night operation. They were actually putting limits on medication, I was getting letters saying I was only going to get 30 pills for that month and the date I could refill it!!!!!!!! Somedays I need more and my doctors knew this and ok's it. some nights my neropathy was so bad I had to double up. well i started to have sleepless painful nights because I was being rationed, I am so serious.

    The media does not report as they are afraid to be critical of the monster they created . Obama doesn't care as it brings us closer to his dream of Communism . His cronies and lapdogs don't care as it keeps them in office and in his good graces .

    Reducing the size of government is the start to getting us out of debt . But sadly it is going to take a long time Abigail and Ron Paul and his ideals while admirable , are questionable at best . His delusion's of  how to conduct international relations are just that , delusions . His switch to Republican is simply because he knows that as a Libertarian third party candidate he wouldn't stand a chance just as he has no chance now .

    Obama has dug a hole for this country that is going to take years to climb out of . But then of course this was his plan . Destroy America by any means  , if possible seize total power and become Dictator .

    This isn't news.People should have listened during the fight for its' passage. They got snookered by fast talkers. Harry Reid himself was on national radio 10/21/09 AND SAID: The cost will be 2  trillion. That's 2000billion. While that shook people, and how to pay that amount came up, the one and only witch of the wast,Pelosi, was on a national radio show on 10/26/09, TO SAY: "A VAT is on the table!" So, if Obama's taxes aren't enough, the VAT will surely bankrupt the nation - just as the CLOWARD-PIVEN STRATEGY says it will - as followed by  the Obama gang. Even the name -"Affordable Care and Patient Protection" is a LIE! If that 13 million (Obama's estimate) can't afford insurance - YOU AND I WILL PAY FOR IT! I'm sorry. They say; "subsidize." Healthcare my foot! It's taking your country thru financial avenues! I agree, insurance companies were bad news, in some cases, but the sheep had better open their eyes;  O'CARE IS NOT THE ANSWER to healthcare problems, but IT IT THE ANSWER TO SWEEPING COV'T POWER AND CONTROL! Something even the liberal and other DEM "commoners" will also struggle under. Get serious. There's a need for a health plan for those in need! Leave the other 130+million that have insurance now ALONE! I want to hear the supporters crying in 5 years about the shortage of doctors, or your family being hit with the dreaded Sebelius "ethics panel." (Ask Palin to explain) I WOULDN'T WISH THAT ON MY ENEMY. I was too dramatic. But it's the wrong plan. Defeat it and get the correct fix

    Duh, the low-life dems knew how much this was going to cost when they passed it, insuring millions more people is not free, the insurance companies will not pick up the costs.  They went ahead and passed it to take more control over Americans.  They are taking away our freedom and they need to be voted out and people who care about America voted in!

    Hey, boys. It ain't his money.

    Plus, he plans to loaf on the retired president's pay and perks. He never has to work another day, but he made damn sure the rest of us have to.

    The rich are behind Obama Care.  That is the reason it is costing so much.  If the government would limit the costs of medical care and eliminate fraud every citizen could have affordable health care.  The lobbiests representing the rich in the medical fields, who influenced Obama and the lawmakers, is the cause for the high costs.  Obamacare is just another program to help the rich get richer.

     Obama lied and the country goes deeper into debt. Obama is determined to bankrupt the federal govt.

    When this so called president has broke this nation for the nations that he serves, he will be able to bring about a godless system of no cash, everything done by computer and chips and that would make him the peoples messiah because he would supply all their needs, except their souls but, then many will take his mark to eat or work?  They will be lost forever but they will eat the food sacrificed to his idol.  satan wants to be God because he is but a little god, isn't all knowing, can't be everywhere at once, so this system will allow him to know all able the people.  Lets see, Hebrew and Greek are both a alphabet and numerical system, if we did the same to English starting with 6 the number of a man and give it, it's value down the line, a=6, b=12, c=18, d=24 and so on and spell out computer and add up the value, you come up with 666, wow, isn't that strange?  What could we do before this high tech?  Wake up people God is God and no other god will ever take His place, seek Him and you will find Him, ask and it will be given you, knock and the door will be opened to you.  It's not to late but act now, this offer doesn't go beyond death and this president is leading you there as fast as he can.  Gods Word, the Bible has the answers to everlasting life, a good life without pain and suffer, better then the New York Crimes or any man made news because it is God inspired.  Start in the book of John and ask God to reveal Himself and He will:

    Top 10 Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Attacks on Women’s Rights
    By Alison McQuade on 03/14/2012 @ 10:50 AM
    Tags: Why Women
     
     
    The
    Right Wing decided it wanted to play Monday Morning Quarterback with my
    lady parts this year. It seems like an odd choice for a recreational
    activity, especially since there’s no legislative or medical reason to
    suddenly introduce radically restrictive and dangerous legislation on
    women’s health and bodies. Maybe someone should introduce them to
    Pinterest instead.
    Here are our Top 10 Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Attacks on Women’s Rights (just in the last 6 months!)
    The Blunt Amendment. Reasonable religious exemptions weren’t enough for Roy Blunt. This amendment
    would have allowed your employer – not your doctor - to decide what
    kind of health care you could get based on his or her own personal moral
    or religious convictions.The All-Male Birth Control Panel, or the Man Panel. Congressman Darrell Issa convened a panel to discuss the coverage of birth control – but refused to include any women.Susan G. Komen Foundation defunds Planned Parenthood. Komen opted to cut off funding to the largest provider of reproductive health services in the US because of their new VP’s objection to a mere 3% of their activities.Rush Limbaugh Calls Sandra Fluke a Prostitute and a Slut. After Sandra Fluke stood up for women everywhere, Rush Limbaugh took to the airwaves and called her a prostitute and a slut
    for speaking out in favor of birth control coverage. He also said she
    should have to put videos of her having sex online to compensate the
    taxpayers who “are going to pay for your contraceptives." Classy.Forced Trans-Vaginal Ultrasounds.
    Republican legislators in Virginia invited the commonwealth into the
    exam room when they proposed a bill that would require women seeking
    abortions to undergo an invasive, medically-unnecessary vaginal probe before their procedure.Texas defunds Planned Parenthood. Under Governor Rick Perry, the state of Texas banned funding to Planned Parenthood because it provides abortion services. In the end, though, this fight has only served to hurt low-income women looking for breast cancer screenings, birth control and pap smears.Women in the Military Should “Expect” to be Raped.
    Responding to a 64% increase in the reports of rape and violent sexual
    assaults in the military, Fox News pundit Liz Trotta responds, “What did they expect?” She goes on to say that there is a bureaucracy of people to support these women who are being “raped too much.”Foster Friess Suggests Women Put Aspirin Between Their Knees. Rick Santorum supporter, Foster Friess, reminisced about back in his day when ladies put aspirin between their knees for birth control. Back in his day, people also died of polio.Santorum wants to deny birth control coverage because he thinks it’s available and affordable. Despite the fact that most forms of birth control still require a prescription and 1 in 3 women have reported struggling to afford birth control. Santorum feels there is no barrier to access, so it shouldn’t be covered by insurance.Mitt Romney doesn’t understand a woman’s reproductive system.
    Romney has publicly supported “personhood amendments,” which would ban
    abortion by declaring life begins at conception. When asked

    Mitt Romney doesn’t understand a woman’s reproductive system.
    Romney has publicly supported “personhood amendments,” which would ban
    abortion by declaring life begins at conception. When asked about how
    this affects birth control, Romney seemed to be completely unaware that hormonal forms of birth control stop implantation, not conception and would be banned under any personhood amendment.

    Just goes to show hwo sneaky these democrats really are, that is if you didn't already know this

  • Robalou01

    I guess I won't be saving $2,500 a year on health care like Odumbo PROMISED me when he and the despicable witch Pelosi shoved this sack of sh*t program down my throat.....  I opt out!!!

    Suckered by the democrat party again, were they?
    If this turns out like almost all government boondoggles, it will be at LEAST 3 times the 'advertised' cost.

    Click the name.

    democrats cant count taxpayers money, only spend it on the non taxpayers

  • begining

    Obummer is selling the U.S.to China one loan at a time and soon they will repo. our federal owned lands.  Then they will own all of natural resorses oil, minerals, and get it all.  China is not lending us money because they like us,  this whole was worked out with George and Barry before election.

    Obamacare will be with us forever if Obama is not VOTED out of office.   It is a massive tax law meant to control our lives and finance the socialist state that is being created before our very eyes with little, if any, opposition.   It even provides for taxing the sale of your residence!

    Was not the purpose of Obamacare to Cut the cost of Healthcare while improving the service?  Did not we hear time and time again how it would create jobs all the while cutting our costs?  How can these Scoundrels, Liars and Thieves get away with this heist?  We must hold them accountable.  They think they are above the law and the Constitution.  They are not!

    You're not counting the highest cost of Obamacare- our freedom. Once the government is "funding" healthcare, they will use it as an excuse to take over every aspect of our lives, using the rising health care costs as an excuse. Do you like to ride motorcycles?Forget that. Hunting and shooting? Can't have that. Bacon and eggs for breakfast? Out of the question. You think we have a nanny state now? You ain't seen nothin' yet.

  • LYNN AND CATHY.

    f.the goverment and F.obama....GUN ?...

  • Pegi

    Of course it's going to cost trillions!  Obama is a liar and hopefully no one believed him when he lied about it saving us money.  The idea didn't make sense from the get go.  It amazes me how gullible some folks are.

  • JacktheFAC

    Why should this surprise us?  So Obamanation lied about the cost of Obamanicare--so what?  He lied about everything else, everytime he opened his mouth, so why should we expect him to not lie about this "healthcare" also?

  • http://ja-js.blogtownhall.com Chuck Fowler

    Ah, that Obama, he's sure got the Midas touch, doesn't he? Everything he touches goes from costing us millions, to billions, to trillions.
