Does anyone think that a huge new entitlement program will lead to lower budget deficits? Sounds implausible, yet proponents of government‐run healthcare claim this is the case according to the official estimates from the Congressional Budget Office and Joint Committee on Taxation.
To use a technical phrase, this is hogwash. This new 6–1/2 minute video, narrated by yours truly, gives 12 reasons why Obamacare will lead to higher deficits — including real‐world evidence showing how Medicare and Medicaid are much more costly than originally projected.
By the way, this video doesn’t even touch on the mandate issue, which Michael Cannon explains is not being counted in order to make the cost of government‐run healthcare less shocking.
