Obamacare program costs $50,000 in taxpayer money for every American who gets health insurance, says bombshell budget report

  • Stunning figure comes from Congressional Budget Office report that revised cost estimates for the next 10 years
  • Government will spend $1.993 TRILLION over a decade and take in $643 BILLION in new taxes, penalties and fees related to Obamacare
  • The $1.35 trillion net cost will result in ‘between 24 million and 27 million’ fewer Americans being uninsured – a $50,000 price tag per person at best
  • The law will still leave ‘between 29 million and 31 million’ nonelderly Americans without medical insurance
  • Numbers assume Obamacare insurance exchange enrollment will double between now and 2025

It will cost the federal government – taxpayers, that is – $50,000 for every person who gets health insurance under the Obamacare law, the Congressional Budget Office revealed on Monday.

The number comes from figures buried in a 15-page section of the nonpartisan organization’s new ten-year budget outlook.

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.

Pulling that off will cost Uncle Sam about $1.35 trillion – or $50,000 per head.

PROMISES: Obama pledged in 2009 during a speech before a joint session of Congress that his health insurance proposal would cost $900 billion over ten years – a far cry short of current numbers

PROMISES: Obama pledged in 2009 during a speech before a joint session of Congress that his health insurance proposal would cost $900 billion over ten years – a far cry short of current numbers

The numbers are daunting: It will take $1.993 trillion, a number that looks like $1,993,000,000,000, to provide insurance subsidies to poor and middle-class Americans, and to pay for a massive expansion of Medicaid and CHIP (Children’s Health Insurance Program) costs.

Offsetting that massive outlay will be $643 billion in new taxes, penalties and fees related to the Obamacare law.

That revenue includes quickly escalating penalties – or ‘taxes,’ as the U.S. Supreme Court described them – on people who resist Washington’s command to buy medical insurance.

It also includes income from a controversial medical device tax, which some Republicans predict will be eliminated in the next two years.

If they’re right, Obamacare’s per-person cost would be even higher.

President Barack Obama pledged to members of Congress in 2009, as his signature insurance overhaul law was being hotly debated, that ‘the plan I’m proposing will cost around $900 billion over 10 years.’

It would be a significant discount if the White House could return to that number today.

The ‘worst snowstorm in history’ shuts down the East Coast: Five states declare emergencies, the National Guard is deployed and New Yorkers rush home before up to three FEET of snow buries the city

  • 36inches of snow expected across Northeast, with winds topping 55mph in New York City and 75mph on the coast
  • New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island governors declared states of emergency
  • National Guard is on standby in New York and 500 guardsmen have been deployed in Massachusetts
  • Up to 100,000 people could lose power in Connecticut and could last a few days
  • Officials were urging people to head home as soon as possible for their own safety leading to chaos on city transit
  • All mass transit, including the subway, will close from 11pm and all non-emergency vehicles will be banned from roads
  • Authorities said that violating the road ban could bring misdemeanor charges, a $300 fine and even get you arrested
  • NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio said: ‘This will be one of the largest blizzards in the history of New York City. People must be prepared. This is not business as usual’
  • Predictions say visibility on roads will be zero Monday night as 2-4 inches of snow fall per hour
  • More than 3,800 flights canceled on Monday, with JFK, LaGuardia and Newark airports virtually closed this evening
  • The National Weather Service has issued a severe weather warning which affects 60 million people 

Five states declared a state of emergency on Monday as the Northeast braced for a ‘crippling and potentially historic’ storm that could bury communities from northern New Jersey to southern Maine in up to 3 feet of snow and batter areas with hurricane-strength winds.

New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island governors were taking no chances as winter storm Juno was set to dump snow at the rate of several inches per hour along with bringing winds up 80mph in some regions and creating whiteout conditions that were being described as ‘life-threatening’, by the National Weather Service.

The storm will affect a 250-mile stretch, including New York City, Philadelphia and Boston, affecting close to 60 million people across seven states. Widespread coastal flooding was expected to affect up to 11 million people starting on Monday afternoon.

Authorities issued a sweeping travel ban effective from 11pm Monday, banishing all except emergency vehicles from the streets of New York City and the surrounding counties, with the threat of $300 fines for violators. Public transit was also canceled for the night, with no clear sign of when roads and services would start up again.

Airlines were shutting down operations along the East Coast – with more than 6,000 flights canceled over the next two days, and the three major New York City airports virtually closed.

On Monday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie declared states of emergencies. Governor Christie said: ‘This is a different kind of storm than we’ve had before.’

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio added: ‘This will be one of the largest blizzards in the history of New York City. People must be prepared. This is not business as usual… Prepare for something worse than we have seen before.’

He urged people to get off the streets as quickly as possible in the next few hours, adding: ‘This is going to hit very hard and very fast.’  As of Monday afternoon, a quarter of an inch of snow was coming down every ten minutes, according to weather experts.

Conservatives have long complained (not without reason) about how prejudiced and partisan the major news networks are. But perhaps no annual event exposes the depths of this bias more transparently than the March for Life. Hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers showed up this year to defend and lift up their voices for the unborn—facing some unhappy and virulent pro-choice activists along the way. And yet, despite the seriousness of this issue, the major news networks devoted altogether 15 seconds of attention to it.

NewsBusters has the exclusive (emphasis theirs):

On Jan 22, 200,000 people descended on Washington, D.C. for the annual March for Life, commemorating the 57 million babies destroyed since 1973’s Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision.Of the three broadcast networks, only CBS mentioned the 2015 March for Life, allotting it just 15 seconds. That’s one second for every 13,000 people who put work and school aside and traveled from as far away as the West Coast. It’s one second for every 3.8 million babies aborted in the last 42 years.
