"If You Think Health Care Is Expensive Now..."

...wait till you see how much it costs when it's "free":
THE HILL: CBO: ObamaCare Slowing Growth, Contributing To Job Losses. “The non-partisan group’s report found that the healthcare law’s negative effects on the economy will be ‘substantially larger’ than what it had previously anticipated. The CBO is now estimating that the law will reduce labor force compensation by 1 percent from 2017 to 2024, twice the reduction it previously had projected.”
UPDATE: This must have been painful for Chuck Todd to write: “CBO essentially reaffirms GOP talking points on health care. Says it will cost jobs, feel as if it raises taxes and contributes to deficit.”
ANOTHER UPDATE: Flashback: FactCheck.Org: A ‘Job-Killing’ Law? House Republicans misrepresent the facts. Experts predict the health care law will have little effect on employment. So were these “fact-checkers” right about anything? Or were they just engaged to defend the Obama narrative until after the election?
Lefties must hate it when those heartless conservatives, using all their hard science and difficult math, as opposed to rainbows and unicorn farts, are right.

Maybe we can take up a collection and change the Hollywood sign to say "We Told You So". There are none so blind as those who Will. Not. See.

Trying to lower the cost of health care while doing nothing to lower the costs of health care, and at the same time expanding the number of people entitled to receive at taxpayer expense? How could it NOT go wrong?
