White House Damage Control: Obamacare Repeal Will ‘Cost too Much’
Might cost you money, but it would save me money! Not to mention save the government money.
Check it out:
Over the last several weeks the Obama White House has been executing a media blitz meant to sell Obamacare to the nation—again. As the final maneuver in that plan, the President is releasing several reports on how Obamacare will affect the states.
His message: repealing Obamacare will just be too expensive.
“These state reports mark the culmination of a multi-week effort by the White House and supporters of reform to bring a renewed refocus on each of these benefits and what the cost of repealing them would mean,” a White House official told reporters at The Hill.
Obamacare supporters crafted these reports to foreground how repealing Obamacare will affect families in the various states.
However, it is a bit hard to understand how repealing the Affordable Care Act could cost more than the millions that is being inefficiently spent to enroll single applicants. Early in November, for instance, it was discovered that the five Obamacare enrollees for the District of Columbia cost the taxpayers a hefty $26.7 million each. Other states have seen similar waste, one source estimating that the cost for all enrollees nationwide had been $14,000 each.
