Taxpayers Spending $53K for Everyone Insured Under ObamaCare

Posted By Daniel Greenfield On May 1, 2014 @ 9:29 am In The Point | No Comments




Give it a little time and it’ll be $530,000. We’re heading down a rabbit hole with people who print money for a living.


Taxpayers will pay over $53,000 per each person newly insured under Obamacare, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation analysis of the Congressional Budget Office data.

The CBO predicts that on average, federal taxpayers will now pay over 95% of the total cost of the Medicaid expansion. Fewer than expected Americans who were already eligible for traditional state Medicaid programs signed up for coverage while programs received free publicity due to the furor over the Medicaid expansion, leading to a lowered estimates of the Medicaid costs states will incur.

The CBO’s findings on the total number of Americans who will receive new private insurance show that the health care law isn’t making much of a dent. By the end of 2014, the CBO predicts that there will be 42 million uninsured Americans; in ten years, that number will have dropped to 31 million without insurance.

And that’s a projection which doubtlessly will not hold up.


Part of that drop will can be attributed to public coverage — outside of private insurance, the CBO expects 13 million people on net to be added to Medicaid and CHIP coverage rolls by 2018.

Welfare America.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
