http://www.cms.gov/Research-Statisti...ads/tables.pdfThe per capita cost of health care expenditures in 2012 was $8,915, according to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. It was $8,170 in 2009, $8,411 in 2010 and $8,658 in 2011. In other words, it’s rising year after year.

Why do you buy what the Federal Govt. and CBO tell you when their history is so bad and they have already generated an 18.2 trillion dollar debt? What is going to happen when the newly high risk individuals now covered under ACA hit the market with their higher costs healthcare treatments? Do you realize that an increase in Medicaid Patients does not lower healthcare costs but rather shifts some of those costs to the state?
Please stop buying what the liberal elite tell you but rather research what they tell you and verify the rhetoric with actual results.
I showed you the skyrocketing costs of healthcare from 1980 ( just over $1,000 per person ) to
2005 ( over $7,500 per person ) . The U.S. spent $8,402 per person on health care in 2010.
Do you realize that CBO only gives PREDICTIONS based upon the assumptions they are given? If the assumptions are wrong what does that do to the predictions?
If the assumptions are wrong it would be because lawmakers repeal some of the revenue neutral funding.
