Gov't Report… ObamaCare: Pay More, Get Less

A new report, provided by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (a nonpartisan government agency), provides more bad news for ObamaCare supporters. Key points:

1. Health care legislation the House passed last week would increase costs over the next decade by $289 billion.

2. Benefits to senior citizens would be slashed. In its current form, Obamacare would sharply reduce benefits for some senior citizens and would jeopardize access to care for millions of others.

3. By 2019, health costs would rise to 21.1% of GDP compared to 20.8 under current law.

4. By 2014, Medicare Advantage enrollment would drop 64% from 13.2 million to 4.7 million because of less generous benefit packages.

Ace of Spades HQ sums it up well: "Hey old folks, they are coming for your health care!"

I am having a really hard time figuring out how the liberals who are trying to shove this bill through think it will actually help ANYBODY!

Proof: Be careful...don't want to give them more devious ideas.

Janie: ObamaCare Winners: Obama, liberal democrats in congress, trial lawyers.

ObamaCare losers: elderly (medicare cuts), young people (individual mandates, coverage they don't need), taxpayers, doctors, nurses, hospitals...
