    Unfortunately, the answer is “Yes”, is it not? I continue to see references to the CBO’s assertions that — given the assumptions it was provided — Obamacare still saves billions over ten years, and the gains continue to grow (or even accelerate) after that.

    So why don’t we see published rebuttals based upon the SPECIFIC assumptions the CBO had to use? I’ve seen a few piecemeal, but don’t we need a comprehensive rebuttal of those assumptions?

      Once the CBO saw what was actually in Obamacare, they reversed course and calculated Obamacare will increase deficits, not decrease them. It seems the only rhetoric I’m hearing from the president and his party these days is about guarantee issue policies, non-discriminatory rates, college kids remaining on parents’ policies longer etc. I’m hearing less talk that Obamacare is going to save us a boatload of money. For most of us, it won’t. Thanks for writing.
