Healthcare reform price tag...

So they are saying if it is passed the healthcare reform bill could cost almost $1 trillion dollars...

and i heard some other nonsense that if you opt out of paying for your healthcare you could get fined...

all i can think is wtf...

but what does everyone else think,

discuss






to be honest i am confused about a lot of it so i am hoping to gain some clarity here.

Look at the previous programs any government has made claims and estimated. Usually they need to multiply it about 10X and that's how much money is actually spent. 1 Tril to me is about 10 tril, they always make it seem cheaper than what it costs.

Does Obama really think that 70-80% of the costs is already in the system? I seriously doubt that, he keeps stating that congress and the legislature is talking about 30% of the funds and arguing and lobbying over this. Nope, there is a lot more to pan out, and seriously this healthcare bill WILL NOT move anywhere for the next couple of years, wayyyy too many kinks in it. No other reforms (like Tort reform) and the money isn't being allocated correctly.

Just IMO, but this **** is gonna sit like a rock in the sun for a while.
