I Thought The Senate Health Bill Was Supposed To REDUCE Costs…
Ok, so this study says it would raise costs and the parts that help pay for it are unrealistic.
I thought the whole idea behind this was to save costs. You don’t think… that the Dems were… lying, do you?
The whole idea here was that the increases in health care spending were unsustainable in the long run and their “solution” ADDS to this???
WASHINGTON – The Senate’s plan to expand health coverage to 34 million more Americans would raise costs slightly, government economic experts said in a report Saturday.
Over time, cost-cutting measures could start to reduce the annual increases in health care spending, offering the possibility of substantial savings in the long run. At the same time, however, some of the Senate’s Medicare savings could be unrealistic and cause lawmakers to roll them back, according to Medicare’s top number crunchers.
The study found that health spending, which accounts for about one-sixth of the economy, would go up by less than 1 percent more than it otherwise would have increased over the coming decade, even with so many more people receiving coverage.
