The latest cost estimates for health care legislation in Congress are about $1.6 trillion over 10 years, according to two Senate sources. Two Senate staffers, one Democratic and one Republican, said the Congressional Budget Office made the estimate for the Finance Committee version of the bill. The Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee version would cost $1 trillion over ten years, but would only cover about one-third of the nearly 50 million uninsured.
At this point I haven’t found anything except the armed forces that the government is reasonably efficient with. Much of the extra cost of medicines and treatments is due to the current government regulations, I can’t see how more government makes the cost go down.
I would like to have your comments.
