Obviously you haven't grasped the fact of "cost of living". Guess what? McDonalds food cost more in New York than it does North Carolina. So does housing and many other things.

Massachusetts average cost of home: $520,179

North Carolina average cost of home: $280,913


More than double.



They have the second highest income (per person) average in the United States.
State-by-state: Average income per person - USATODAY.com



So would you rather buy something that takes up 20% of your income or 36% of your income? Basic math.
520,179 is not more than double of 280,913. But your point remains.

Herp. Derp.

My mistake. Was thinking "almost" double.

Are there any estimates that costs and spending don't rise in the next few years?

Rationing happens in other countries with socialized medicine, why won't it happen here?

What CNN Didn't Ask About Canada Health Care Rationing | NewsBusters.org

Canada's ObamaCare Precedent - WSJ.com

Even the Physicians for National Health agree their will be rationing. Check out the FAQ question on "will there be rationing".
Single-Payer FAQ | Physicians for a National Health Program

It's common knowledge that UK and Canada for example set an amount the gov't will pay for healthcare, then it works to stay within that amount....how can rationing not happen in that environment?

Ezra Klein gives a good breakdown of the numbers here.

CBO: Health reform to cut deficit by $50 billion more than we thought - The Washington Post

Also, you say that $500B in new taxes on ALL Americans. Well that's not true either. Without even breaking out the calculator the law doesn't affect ALL Americans, so how could it jack up taxes on ALL Americans?

You make no mention of these benefits, some of which have kicked in now. Some later when the law fully kicks in 2014.

No mention of $800 billion tax credits for lower income families.
Insurance companies can't drop you because of pre-existing condition.
No mention of closing the Medicare doughnut hole for seniors
You are absolutely correct, after reading your link my numbers were off. I stated $ 700B added to the defecit....and per the CBO estimate the number is over $ 1T. My bad.

Re: Supreme Court Upholds Health Care Mandate

You're still kinda missing the point or you didn't read it. The legislation is projected to pay for itself or come close. If you only take into consideration outlays and spending and don't factor in revenue and savings well, of course, it appears to explode the deficit.

It doesn’t include the Medicare cuts, or many of the tax increases, that pay for the legislation. “CBO and JCT have previously estimated that the ACA will, on net, reduce budget deficits over the 2012–2021 period; that estimate of the overall budgetary impact of the ACA has not been updated.”

The bottom line is this, CBO will roll out more concrete deficit reduction numbers at some point in the future. I imagine more than once. Each year a new projection is done the legislation tends to cost a little more...and save more.

Re: Supreme Court Upholds Health Care Mandate

One more thing SS33, your $700B estimate is looking at a different time frame when the law was originally passed. The first two years of it didn't cost much because there wasn't much implementation. The new estimates cover 2011-2012.

On a side note every year it costs more to repeal the law, which explodes the deficit. CBO says repeal would costs $230 billion. Basically Republicans are full of shit when they say repeal and replace.

Re: Supreme Court Upholds Health Care Mandate

Its really comical to hear the GOP talk about how they will cut taxes, increase defense spending, increase Medicare/Medicaid spending and reduce the deficit. If they can do that and get a better cbo score I will be the first to vote republican every election.

Got me there. But given that healthcare represents 17% of GDP, it's the one that has the biggest drain on the economy, doing nothing and repeal this and repeal that isn't an option any longer.

Re: Supreme Court Upholds Health Care Mandate

This is absolutely the way. We have more waste, fraud and abuse within our healthcare system than any other. We spend more on healthcare than any other industrialized nation. It's really now or never. That repeal bullshit is for the birds.

How come the right fails to look at the waste, fraud and mismanagement in the DoD? This is latest from them:

Again in 2011, the GAO could not "render an opinion on the 2011 consolidated financial statements of the federal government", with a major obstacle again being "serious financial management problems at the Department of Defense (DOD) that made its financial statements unauditable".[19]

In December 2011, the GAO found that "neither the Navy nor the Marine Corps have implemented effective processes for reconciling their FBWT." According to the GAO, "An agency’s FBWT account is similar in concept to a corporate bank account. The difference is that instead of a cash balance, FBWT represents unexpended spending authority in appropriations." In addition, "As of April 2011, there were more than $22 billion unmatched disbursements and collections affecting more than 10,000 lines of accounting."[20]

So how come we are good with this? Cut the pentagon's budget from ear to ear until we can at least get an audit of there expendures. As a citizen im outraged by this, why arent others?
