By FITSNews || The rigged three-ring circus of “health care reform” could be entering its final chapter this weekend as the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) in Washington D.C. released its official estimate of the cost of the plan. Meanwhile, Democrats appeared to be working towards a Sunday vote on the controversial legislation.
According to the CBO estimates – Obama’s plan would cost $940 billion over the next decade without adding anything to the deficit.
And yes, if you believe that then we’ve got some nice oceanfront property for you to look at in … say … Nebraska.
The actual cost of the plan is closer to $2.5 trillion, fully-implemented, and it would add at least $1 trillion to an out-of-control U.S. debt that’s expected to surpass $20 trillion within the coming decade.
Nonetheless, Obama and his Congressional allies are pressing forward with the legislation.
“We are absolutely giddy over the great news that we’ve gotten from the CBO,” U.S. Poverty Pimp … err, Majority Whip Jim Clyburn told reporters Thursday.
It remains unclear at this point whether or not House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has the votes to pass the proposal – or whether Republicans have the votes needed to stop it.
