    When Is Spending $900 Billion Saving $80 Billion? When the democrats write a health care reform bill. The hodge podge put out by the Senate Finance Committee and scored by the CBO will cost ~ $850 Billion but is said to save ~$80 Billion. CBO reports that the hodge podge they scored was not in legislative language and could not be scored accurately.

    The Senate Finance Committee is the cheapest of the bills. The other Senate bill was scored at 1.5+ trillion with a T. Of course when the career bureaucrats write the regulations who knows how much the cost will be.

    In the Finance Committee bill Medicare spending will be cut by ~$450 Billion over ten years allowing Old Folks to "die without dignity". Everyone else will either:

    1. Have their taxes raised! :tear:

    2. Be fined! or:confused:

    3. Be fined and put in jail!:tonofbricks:

    Does anybody really believe there will be $80,000,000,000 in savings? I don't.

    Apparently the $80,000,000,000 savings only means that it only came in under some mythical cost of $900 billion with a B that Obama has mentioned.

    Ken

    My response to your doubt was apparently incorrect. The $80 billion savings was supposedly because the Federal spending on medical care would be less that currently envisioned. Of course its difficult to talk about any savings when the Finance Committee proposal will cost $829 billion over the next 10 years. But this spending will not add to the federal deficit? If you can figure out what is going on in the following report let me know. As I said only in Washington, DC.

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/200...ng-senate-health-care-reform/?test=latestnews

    "Congressional budget experts gave a boost Wednesday to that version of President Obama's proposed overhaul of the health care system, concluding that the bill pending in the Finance Committee would cost $829 billion over the next 10 years -- under the $900 billion target set by Obama.

    The preliminary report, released Wednesday by the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office, also said the committee's health care reform package will not add to the national deficit -- and will save $81 billion over the next 10 years compared to current federal health care spending."

    Hey, you aren't concerned about the pentagon losing $2.3T. What's a minuscule $850B?
