CBO Admits Impossible to Know Costs of Obamacare
« on: June 09, 2014, 09:20:49 AM »
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

If you want to read the report yourself, you can download it from the CBO website here:  http://www.cbo.gov/sites/default/files/cbofiles/attachments/45231-ACA_Estimates.pdf

The CBO surgarcoated the ACA report and then did about face. Many congressman and women would have properly would have voted "NO" is the CBO gave a proper report.

The CBO gave precisely the report it was told to give when it sugar-coated the ACA.  It wasn't the fault of the CBO but rather of the democrats who told the CBO to score the bill using blatantly false assumptions:  garbage in, garbage out.
