Obamacare Price Tag Spikes by 54%


03.21.11

According to CBO’s latest estimates, the cost of Obamacare has increased by $500 billion.— Meaning, in only one year, the cost has increased from an already staggering $938 billion price tag to $1.445 trillion.

Let’s put that into perspective. Half a trillion dollars could buy:

•–All 32 NFL Teams ($32.7 billion), 30 NBA Teams ($11 billion), 30 MLB Teams ($14.7 billion), and 30 NHL Teams ($6.68 billion) almost 8 times.
•–1,002,004,008 iPad 2s ($499)
•–A Ford F-150 for every resident in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, Phoenix, Philadelphia, San Antonio and Omaha–a total of 22,306,491 trucks.–
•–Four years at Texas A&M University (including tuition, fees, books, room & board) for 5,793,606 high school seniors in Texas.

No wonder Americans’ disapproval of the law has increased to 46 percent from 40 percent in one year.[1]
