From Bloomberg News:
The $1.3 trillion U.S. health-care system overhaul is getting more expensive and will initially accomplish less than intended. <source>
Bang – right between the eyes of poor old Uncle Sam: more expensive, and will accomplish less than intended.
Sound like a Liberal program?
Costs for a network of health-insurance exchanges, a core part of the Affordable Care Act, have swelled to $4.4 billion for fiscal 2012 and 2013 combined, and will reach $5.7 billion in 2014, according to the budget President Barack Obama yesterday sent to Congress. That spending would be more than double initial projections, even though less than half the 50 U.S. states are participating.
I have no curiosity about the fraud called Obamacare, or the inevitable disastrous consequences of Obamacare (the malignancy of these things was known from the very beginning), but I do have this curiosity:
If you are a Liberal and were crazy enough to vote for Barack Alinsky Obama, did you know that he was lying about its likely costs but supported it anyway?
Or were you duped by his rhetoric and your own Liberal fantasies about such utopian government programs?
