DC's Best Kept Secret

What with all the reports of how well Open Enrollment v2.0 has been going, it's no wonder the folks in charge want to keep this under wraps:

"It will cost the federal government – taxpayers, that is – $50,000 for every person who gets health insurance under the Obamacare law"

But that's only the tip of the proverbial iceberg:

"It will take $1.993 trillion, a number that looks like $1,993,000,000,000, to provide insurance subsidies ... and to pay for a massive expansion of Medicaid and CHIP"

But hey, worth it to provide universal health insurance coverage.

Wait, what?

"The best-case scenario described by the CBO would result in 'between 24 million and 27 million' fewer Americans being uninsured in 2025, compared to the year before the Affordable Care Act took effect."

So after 15 years and $1,993,000,000,000, they still won't have everyone covered?

Gee, sure glad they passed it to find out...

(And notice, one has to go to the UK press to find this)
