House Health Bill Will Cost $3.5 Trillion

Over ten years, that is. Steve Parente estimates that 97% of the population will get insurance (a result I have a hard time accepting). In any event, that works out to about $75,000 per newly insured person, or $300,000 for a family of four. 64 million people will lose their private coverage to join a "public" (Medicare-like) plan.

    Unbelievable how these guys are willing to waste money.

  2. Tom H. says:

    I’d rather have the money than the insurance!

  3. Larry C. says:

    To get to 97%, wouldn’t they have to be insuring most of the illegal aliens? I thought Obama said he was against that.
