What a great deal!
Originally when Obama proposed his healthcare reform, he said it would cost $900 billion for about 30 million Americans ($30,000 per person)
The CBO came out today and said its going to cost us $1.993 trillion over 10 years. Quite a hefty increase from $900 billion. That puts it at right around $50,000 per person.
Can someone tell me how this makes sense? How many Americans spend $50,000 per year on healthcare, let alone spent that much overall per year? Less than 10% is my guess. But we (you and me) are flipping the money to fund this?
There’s no way we can continue to afford to pay this!
Wouldn’t it make more sense to just take…say $10,000 and put it in an account for the uninsured? It’s there if they need it. If they don’t use it, it goes back to the people.
