New CBO Cost Estimate for Health Care Legislation

$597 Billion to cover the all Americans under proper health insurance, hmm seems pricey but worthwhile for about the same price as the Defense budget every but instead designing new and expensive ways to kill people.

But wait it gets better. The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office's price tag of $597 Billion isn't for one year but the cost through 2019! That's rigtht $59.7 Billion cost per year to ensure health insurance for 310 million Americans. That makes the cost per person $192 a year, $0.53 a day! Seriously what cheapass person could possibly be against throwing their pocket change so that every man, woman, and child have universal access to affordable health care.
