Bill For The Bill In Billions

According to the Congressional Budget Office, the first decade of ObamaCare won't cost $938 billion as originally estimated, but about twice as much.  Remember that keeping the cost under a trillion was a big deal back when the issue was debated.  The Democrats sold it that way and a number of politicians supported the bill because of this guarantee.

I have a simple solution.  All politicians who voted for ObamaCare should sign a pledge handing over their pensions and any other money they get over their salary into a fund that will cover the cost overrun.  I don't think it's asking too much after what they promised.  Why should we have to pick up the bill?

Why not take their salaries too?

Please. This was such a transparent lie that it's hardly worth remarking.

The tab is in fact likely to be many times what CBO is reporting now.

What a shock- something cost more than was promised. Who actually paid attention to or believed that. Anti-bloggers?

What a shock- I think though its a great approach on Defense and it should used on other government expenditures too.

Actually, there is a hearing this week on a bill promoted by No Labels on the "No Budget. No Pay" act which sort of takes that approach. People liked Lieberman and Collins and Daniels are at least on board with holding a hearing
