CBO now estimates Obamacare will cost double what Obama and Casey pledged

WASHINGTON – Nearly two years after Obamacare was signed into law, the Congressional Budget Office says that the costs of onerous federal mandate continue to skyrocket.  As the 60th vote for Obama’s healthcare takeover, Bob Casey should tell Pennsylvanians how he plans to pay for his vote without increasing the national debt.

This week the CBO estimated that Obamacare will cost $1.76 trillion over the next decade – double Obama’s initial projection of “around $900 billion” when he rushed the bill through Congress.


“As the price tag for Obamacare skyrockets, Bob Casey should tell Pennsylvanians how he plans to pay for his vote without growing the national debt,” said Nate Hodson, director of state and regional media relations for Crossroads GPS.  “Making future generations pay the price for Bob Casey’s support of Obama’s healthcare takeover is not the type of leadership Pennsylvanians expect.”


Crossroads GPS is a policy and grassroots advocacy organization that is committed to educating, equipping and mobilizing millions of American citizens to take action on the critical economic and legislative issues that will shape our nation’s future in the years ahead.
