CBO: Democrats Bend Health Care Cost Curve — in the Wrong Direction
(I have provided a plethora of links, but feel free to good your own)
CBO:In the legislation that has been reported we do not see the sort of fundamental changes that would be necessary to reduce the trajectory of federal health spending by a significant amount. And on the contrary, the legislation significantly expands the federal responsibility for health care costs. …
Certainly reforms of that sort are included in some of the packages, and we are still analyzing the reforms in the House package. Legislation was only released as you know two days ago. But changes we have looked at so far do not represent the fundamental change on the order of magnitude that would be necessary to offset the direct increase in federal health costs from the insurance coverage proposals.

I don't know why people would need links, the numbers are just unsustainable. You can't have a Health Care system that is mandatory for everyone in this country without going bankrupt. I would surely hate to be a Dr. right now, not knowing how this huge government decisions will effect my career. It's obvious that the Democrats in office don't want our input and aren't really concerned with the American people being happy with this choice. This is exactly what creates disenfranchised voters. I am so sick of the way things have been playing out for a while now and I think it's time to change things in DC. These people are playing with our livelihoods and money like they are playing Monopoly. I do not understand those that still think that government is looking out for their interests.

’m beginning to think that perhaps the Obama-care train has just hit a wall at 90mph. What do you think?
Yea, this was how HillaryCare met it's demise. But Dems (Pelosi and Obama) are Hell bent on spending every last penny out of working Americans.
