1.4 Trillion Reasons to Repeal The Bill

My better half believes that "there are no coincidences," which is helpful in considering these two news items:

Under ObamaCare©, "The Department of Health and Human Services will become the nation's first-ever $1-trillion-per-year Cabinet department in 2014."

One shudders at the thought of the damage that HHS Secretary Shecantbeserious can wrought with that much of our money.

On the other hand:

"The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) and the staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) have estimated the direct pending and revenue effects of H.R. 2, the Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act, as passed by the House of Representatives on January 19, 2011 ... In total, CBO and JCT estimate that H.R. 2 would reduce outlays by about $604 billion and reduce revenues by about $813 billion over the 2012-2021 period."

Although I was assured that there would be no math, it appears that aborting ObamaCare© will save us over $1.4 trillion.
