CBO Scores Health Care Bill Reform at $829 Billion

CBO today said a modified Senate Finance Committee healthcare overhaul bill would cost $829 billion over 10 years, a modest increase over the original $774 billion price tag, and will decrease the deficit by $81 billion. Changes to the measure appear not have altered coverage, keeping the number of Americans who will have insurance as a result of the proposal at 94 percent.

That assumes that they will actually cut Medicare (highly unlikely). Also, the taxes start 2 years before the benefits start. This is a disaster.
