We will be finding hidden butt nuggets of joy for years in the Obamacare disaster. The accounting done by Obama and the Democrats would put them in jail in a normal society. Expect to hear about "costs" rising for the rest of your life......oh, and that will always be followed by taxes rising.
The whole thing makes me want to projectile vomit on Tom Hanks
Obama health bill hid $30 billion in Medicaid costs, critics say
The federal government already has the “Doc Fix,” an annual shortfall of about $20 billion that must be paid to maintain current payment rates to physicians under Medicare.
Now, it looks like President Obama’s health-care bill created another funding cliff, costing an additional $5.5 billion or so each year.
Critics say the costs were hidden from view in the $940 billion health-care bill to lower the price tag by about $30 billion, and also as a way to gain the support of doctors and hospitals without angering governors.
Low Medicaid reimbursement rates have cut down on the number of physicians that will even see poor and indigent recipients in the first place.
