Why does it cost $3 TRILLION??????

They said that the bill has no chance of passing the senate anyway. And that if it does (even when they work out the differences) it will still have the same BAD fundimentals. But why DOES it cost soooooooooo much?

  • This is why the plan will cost $3 Trillion (conservative estimate) over 10 years following implementation.

    They have to pay for all for all of the administration costs, overhead plus the absorbing of the medical costs of those who will not have to pay the $5/$15,000 for the plan because they do not earn enough, cannot work, and/ or are retired/on disability, etc.!
