$856 billion to pay for Health Care Bill?

They claim this will cost $856 billion:

Personally I would at least double this estimate because it's a politician proposing it. So it's going to cost $1.6 trillion that we don't have. And tell me how taxes are not going up?

It will cost way more than that. It always does.
They can't even run medicare and social-security without it going bankrupt. But it will be different this time, really, :wink: :wink:

Isn't socialism wonderful. It brings everyone down to the lowest common denominator so we are all screwed. Bye bye freedom in the name of taking care of everyone! :evil:

If people were working, we would not even be having this issue. Put people back to work and the issue will take care of itself. It is a shame that the Honorable President of the United States does not understand that.
