CBO Gives Up on Calculating What Obamacare Will Cost
It’s hard to hit a moving target.
Check it out:
So we have a snowball heading down the hill. It’s growing and growing and growing, feeding off its own incompetence, evil, stupidity, whatever. It was all in the cards. So the CBO is giving up trying to predict any costs. Now, under normal circumstances, that would be bad news. Oh, no! Under normal circumstances 20 years ago, the reaction would have been, “All right, we’ve got to tighten this down.
“We have got to stop spending. We have got to get this put back in order.” That’s not the reaction today. When the CBO says, “Oh, my God, it’s gotten so out of control, we can’t even calculate the costs,” the demand is for government to do something about it. And the only way government does anything is get bigger, to become more involved in things. Roll Call magazine: “Fiscal Diagnosis Only Gets Tougher for Health Care Law.”
ABC News: “Obamacare Error Puts Two Million Enrollees in Jeopardy.” The bottom line to this one is, they can’t square the information they think they’ve got from two million people that enrolled for Obamacare. Two million people! (interruption) The honor system failed? Everything in the system failed. Two million people! They don’t know whether they’ve paid. They don’t know who they are. They don’t know anything.
What’s the solution?
Government’s got to fix it!
I was reading my tech blogs. Get this. These little bloggers are all excited, ’cause somebody put a news story out last week that HealthCare.gov is about to get fixed. They’re just thrilled beyond their ability to keep their underwear up. You can just see them “dropping trou” out there. They’re so excited over this, you can just see it as you read the words. They write about HealthCare.gov is finally about to get fixed.
(whispering) It’s a low, very, very quiet news story. HealthCare.gov has been undergoing major revisions and about to go back online totally fixed!
