The CBO has concluded the obvious about Obamacare: It’s going to cost more than anyone originally thought. They were also considerate enough to note that they haven’t crunched all the additional “unexpected” costs they predict will be there too. Happiness, joy, and rapture.
Frankly, I can’t see how anyone could have concluded anything else would happen. Every other entitlement ever created cost more than was advertised. Every other country with socialized medicine pays through the nose for it, and they were available for study before this bill was passed. In short, it was a “Thank you, Captain Obvious” moment confirmed by the CBO.
I’d like to think the Congresstwits were just lying to us, since it would suggest some intelligence is at the helm, however dishonest it may be. At this point though, I can honestly believe their ideology or blind faith in Obama led them to think this wouldn’t happen. Either way, they own it now. Once it fails, the Democrats attempts to wiggle out from under it will be nothing short of epic.
Wait until Obamacare begins to come to fruition. All those true believers in socialized medicine are not going to enjoy the apples from that tree. A small comfort to know they won’t be able to escape it any more than the rest of us, but it would have been better if it hadn’t happened at all.
