A few hundred billion here, a few hundred billion there...

What is another trillion dollars among friends politicians? Even the CBO isn't counting all the money these days. CBO Says Medicaid Expansion Would Cost $500 Billion That is it would cost the FEDERAL government 500 billion. That states would also have extra costs, but the CBO doesn't count those costs.

So the total price tag for Obama's socialized medicine idea was supposed to be $600 billion, but add this $500 billion for Medicare, and that's 1.1 trillion dollars. And that doesn't cover the 43% of Medicare costs picked up by the states. Another few hundred million dollars, I'm sure.

Do politicians really believe the crap they sling around?

The taxpayer has to come up with ANOTHER trillion dollars?
