    Angry Health care repeal will cost $230 billion

    Washington (CNN) -- Legislation being pushed by House Republicans to repeal President Barack Obama's health care overhaul will add $230 billion to the federal debt by 2021, according to an analysis released Thursday by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.
    Democrats immediately pounced on the report, arguing, among other things, that it undermines the new GOP House majority's emphasis on fiscal responsibility.
    "Not only would repeal of health care reform add to our deficit, it would dump more than 30 million Americans from coverage who will be protected by our new health care reform act," said Sen. Richard Durbin, D-Illinois.
    "So more than 50 million Americans won't have the protection of health insurance. That is a personal family tragedy even beyond our discussion of the deficit."

    Re: Health care repeal will cost $230 billion

    I'm sort of with the Republicans on this one. I want it repealed. Unlike the Republicans I'd replace it with something that isn't the biggest joke of the millennium so far... I don't think I could come up with a more laughable bill if I tried.

    For a Communist Obama certainly keeps a good disguise up. Seems like it would be in the interests of a Communist to... you know... do something remotely communistic... Instead he didn't pass universal healthcare (which most, if not all other developed nations have, so I suppose they're all super communists, even their conservative parties increase health spending lol), he didn't pass a public option (which to a communist would be only the most unacceptably ridiculous compromise ever), he didn't even properly aim to fix up the status quo a little, it was all rhetoric.

    Regardless of what I think on the subject, it WILL be repealed. And it will be bipartisan. Just watch.

    Re: Health care repeal will cost $230 billion

    Wow, an article claiming that repeal would cost $230 billion with not one single example of how this could be possible. Great job CNN. Easy to see why no one watches you any more.

    I'll side with Paul Ryan. He's a bit more credible on the subject and said that he would eat his tie if this outlandish claim actually turned out to be correct.

    Re: Health care repeal will cost $230 billion

    One of Obama's selling points for the bill is that it would save us those $230 billion. But they used some very fuzzy math to come up with that figure. This healthcare bill and any healthcare bill that we come up with to cover all those people that the government claims are uninsured is going to cost us a lot of money. And, just because we repeal this healthcare bill, which is horrendous in my opinion, doesn't mean we can't come up with another that will either save us money or at least not cost us as much money.

    Isn't great how the media frames things. Like as soon as the bill is repealed $230 billion will disappear from the treasury. Yeah, I know they don't say it like that but you know there are people who will assume it.

    Re: Health care repeal will cost $230 billion

    Repeal would cost $230B! Only because the CBO would go by the old Medicare/Medicaide costs the Obamacare shell gamed to pretend it wouldn't bust the deficit. This is what you call "modern activist journalism" at it's... best or worst. Depends on how you look at it.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Re: Health care repeal will cost $230 billion

    Either way this goes it is going to increase the deficit. More important here, I feel, is how the Republicans have already began to go back on campaign promises. The GOP promised to create a more open legislative process and criticized the Democrats for not allowing amendments and debate, yet right out the gate they are allowing no such actions to the repeal vote. Secondly, Republicans are wanting to vote to repeal the Healthcare Bill wholesale because by breaking the bill up item by item, they would be forcing their members to vote against pieces of the bill that Americans want to keep. This would ultimately lead to a backlash against the GOP Congressional leadership.

    Re: Health care repeal will cost $230 billion

    I dont care how much it will cost, repeal the damm thing. Let me ask you a question Noodle do you honestly wanna pay for health care for those who support warmongering, bloodthirsty, pro-federal reserve, and thieving politicians? I sure as hell dont.

    This bill wasn't supposed to fix healthcare. It's more about new tax laws than fixing healthcare.

    Perssonally, I think that 230 billion is a bargain, compared to the damage this bill is going to do to the country.

    Re: Health care repeal will cost $230 billion

    Do you realize how accurate the CBO has been with 10 projections on any bill? Why doesn't that matter and are you willing to put your reputation on the line in supporting those projections? Do you honestly believe that adding 40+ million new people to the healthcare roles will reduce healthcare costs and thus lower the debt?
