The Heritage Foundation has plowed through the jots, tittles and minutia of the Affordable Care Act to details the real costs associated with Obamacare. As the government is wont to do, Obamacare is filled with arcane language and counter-cross-references, designed by lobbyists and staffers with an urge to be opaque and smarter than the other lobbyists and staffers. The notion of plain language "interpretations"--similar to those which these same governmental agencies mandate of countless American business ventures--is less than a joke for these federal hacks.
In any case, the costs of all the garbage, hidden taxes and flotsam buried in Obamacare will equal $800 BILLION over the 10 year period that began in 2012. And if you believed that this law (really nothing more than a slimy, backdoor introduction to a single payer system) would benefit the economy and slow health care costs, all to OUR benefit, I can only say...COME ON NOW!
