ObamaCare Estimates Based on Faulty Numbers

Obamacare cost estimates hide up to $50 billion per year

Federal payments required by President Barack Obama’s health care law are being understated by as much as $50 billion per year because official budget forecasts ignore the cost of insuring many employees’ spouses and children, according to a new analysis.


“The Congressional Budget Office has never done a cost-estimate of this [because] they were expressly told to do their modeling on single [person] coverage,” said Richard Burkhauser in a telephone interview Monday.


On May 4, 2010, the Joint Committee on Taxation directed the Congressional Budget Office to ignore family members when determining whether employees actually pay more than 9.5 percent of their household income on insurance.

Liars and cheaters. This horrendous legislation continues to get worse and worse – but with all of these other crises, ObamaCare continues to lurk beneath the surface.
