The truth begins

Now that Obamacare is passed, we have seen a slow leak of information completely in opposition to everything the Democrats claimed while pushing the bill. Things they knew were true but lied about. Since the bill is now law, they have to let the facts come out or risk looking even more out of touch and dishonest.

For today's example we turn to Kathleen Sebelius, a member of Obama's own cabinet, for our daily does of Obamacare reality. Turns out, they have no idea how much it will cost. After fudging the numbers in order to make the price tag seem horrible instead of devastating, they admit it was all a ruse.

It was obvious to those of us who studied the bill, but that leaves out most of Congress, so here we go--- another skyrocketing government program expenditure that does nothing but make our lives worse.

Sebelius: We don’t know what ObamaCare costs will be

Think of this as a companion piece to the sudden recognition that massive government interventions cost more than they save. On Wednesday, Kathleen Sebelius appeared before the House Appropriations Committee to discuss the appropriations for high-risk pool subsidies that ObamaCare provides to the states. The bill appropriated $5 billion for this program, but as Sebelius tells the committee, that was just a spit-balling number. In reality, no one has the faintest clue how much money will actually get spent on this program, via Breitbart TV and Naked Emperor News:

CMS is the actuary for Medicare and Medicaid, which warned that the forecasting in ObamaCare was hopelessly optimistic, and this appears to be one of those areas in which they’ll be proven right more quickly than most.

But don’t worry — Congress knew exactly what they were doing when they passed the bill. Riiiiiiiiiiiight.
