That was over 20 years, this linked article shows the first under scoring of the massive HC Bill.

Spring Surprise: CBO Says Health Care Reform to Cost $115 Billion More Than Originally Projected | FDL Action

The Congressional Budget Office just revised upwards the projected cost (PDF) of the new health care law by $115 billion. The increase is due mainly to the fact that the original CBO score of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act did not factor in the cost of actually having the government implement the reform via discretionary spending, and the law provided for a significant number of grants which did not have a specific dollar value.

I suspect at least some of the decisions about how to structure the new lawís grants and discretionary spending requirements were to help keep the CBO score low. Democrats became bizarrely and dysfunctionally obsessed with the CBO score about which most Americans are completely misinformed if they know anything at all.


Looks like as usual the Federal Govt lied to the public, they never have come in under budget, why we are trillions in the tank and growing so fast we are looking to become the next Greece so I can pay for someones HC

bottom line: the bill will reduce the deficit by 1.3 trillion dollars in 20 years.

Sorry that you have such little faith in American ingenuity, intelligence, perseverance and shear might. Expecting a Leader to solve all our problems makes as much since as expecting a CIO to always produce the next corporate invention, it just doesnít work that way consistently. Leaders provide a means for smart individuals to produce, not the other way around. The only way someone can get from there to here to hurt you, is for someone here not to do their job as expected Ö period, end of story. If the only answer is to continue throwing bodies at the problem, then 8+ years of doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results Ö is truly insanity.

Also, allowing your fear of what could happen, will only hamper your thinking and prevent rational thought of what needs to happen. Thatís the biggest problem I see with a segment of America these days. People are running around allowing fear drive their decision making process, and thus irrational decisions are driving us to the brink of total insanity. Every other week thereís a different fear of something thatís driving major decisions. It takes someone calm, with the ability to lesion first, understand second and be intelligent enough to understand what they hear in order to make mindful decisions. Any idiot can rant, rave and make more noise than action and thus becoming reactive over proactive. Everyone is a critic but no one is putting their neck on this line with an answer. If someone has the answers to all the problems, by all means stop making noise and start giving answers. Otherwise, shut-up, get out of the way and let the people who can provide the answers speak.

Remember, the only thing that makes up America, is Americans, not the other way around. And thereís no substitute for intellect. So you canít drape yourself in the American Flag one day, and condemn Americanís the next, and expect someone to take you serious as patriotic; thatís silly at best and hypocritical and worse.

The answer to your original question; YES; pull out on their country and dare the hell out of them to come here. We have Trillions and Trillions a dollars invested in being able to defend ourselves from home. Weíve done it before and it worked. Whenever we simply occupied, it doesnít work. We have only history to as our guide. What do we need, someone to rub our nose in history? Intelligent people should need that. Let the underdevelopment, unimaginative and unintelligent make the same mistakes over and over Ö not the United State of America.
