    CBO revises and DOUBLES the estimate on Obamacare costs to $1.76 TRILLION in 10 years!!!

    http://campaign2012.washingtonexami...bamacare-cost-176-trillion-over-10-yrs/425831

    This is shocking!!! Obama pledged that the total costs wouldn't be more than around "900 billion over 10 years".

    How can this be???? Obama has an Ivy League education and is suppose to be the smartest President ever! And we know he wouldn't lie to us, right?

    Why didn't someone warn all of us???



    Oh, we did.

    again the systemic destruction of the USA and wear down the middle class to the level of the poor, leaving a VERY slim upper crust that can be manipulated. It leaves a huge class of people reliant on the GOVERNMENT for aid, healthcare, etc....Marxism boys, look it up..

    Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich shouldn't have invented it, then.

    Meet New Gingrich:
    Contract with American legislative proposal #1:
    Repeal Obamacare
    http://newtgingrich360.com/repeal-obamacare

    "MITT’S PLAN
    On his first day in office, Mitt Romney will issue an executive order that paves the way for the federal government to issue Obamacare waivers to all fifty states. He will then work with Congress to repeal the full legislation as quickly as possible.
    In place of Obamacare, Mitt will pursue policies that give each state the power to craft a health care reform plan that is best for its own citizens. The federal government’s role will be to help markets work by creating a level playing field for competition."

    But yeah, it makes sense to blame stupid decisions and laws that Obama created and has adamantly supported on the GOP candidates who are adamantly against it. Sounds logical...

    You sound like a Rick Santorum PAC commercial. Massachusetts is the bluest of blue states.....I'm sure they loved Romneycare and maybe it was right for them. Let the state decide for themselves. But I think you are being more than a bit disingenuous when you don't elaborate the differences between a country wide mandate and a state's right issue.

    To me, this is a non-issue that I could care less about.....much ado about nothing.

    I am eagerly awaiting the first term of President Romney and the dismantling of the Obama horror show beginning with the firing of every Czar and the elimination of those positions on day one.........then to be followed by the making of the term Obamacare nothing more than a humorous Trivial Pursuit question that asks "what Presidential initiative passed by a partisan Congress on March 21st, 2010 threatened to destroyed America"............with a one-word answer on the back of the card that reads "Obamacare".....

    Lie? You saw his lips moving didn't you? And check out the lying eyes of Nancy baby, AKA as "saving the planet girl," and her sidekick Dirty Harry master rigger of elections. We have met the enemy and he is us.

    The most shocking thing of all is that this regime is a slight favorite to be re-elected. Now that is REALLY scary.

    Not only is this not shocking but it probably won't be the last time the cost is revised upward.

    Didn't Obama tell us it would save us money before he told us it would cost us money?

    There is now some proof that the approach that Obamacare is trying to take will in fact save money......However, I am fully behind the idea that Obamacare is the wrong way to try to make this approach through Healthcare Reform. It would seem they got the idea right, but the planned implementation of it and its extra baggage is just horrible

    You are so right. Scary doesn't even begin to describe.

    Are majority of Americans completley blind, ignorant to what this leads to or are they just holding out their hands for their own free handouts (lazy)?

    The idea of health care reform has been around for a long time and one supported broadly across party lines.

    ObamaCare would be more correctly described as a disaster I think though rather than reform. When one of the most powerful in one of the two controlling parties stands up and says "we've got to pass it to see what's in it" you can't have a very comfortable feeling that they have a clue what they're doing or they're hiding something from you!

    I'm pretty sure that they were too stupid to know what was in it themselves. We've seen these people in action. I doubt too many people have enough faith in our Government to think they knew exactly what was in it and was using a clever way to hide it

    Which is my point. If that's the case it shouldn't have been voted on and passed! Under those circumstances passing it was nothing but political. We've spent a lot of time here on these OP boards discussing issues of religion and politics. Like many have posted I'm more concerned about stupid and politics.
