Obama Health Care Bait & Switch

Anyone who has been on this planet for more than 5 years as a conscious adult knows that ESTIMATES are normally low when coming for anyone with interest in a contract going through.  It can be off anywhere from 5% to 200% depending on the ethics and education of the ones making the estimate.

How are ethics in Washington D.C. today?  How about health care or economic education.  My assumption is that the politicians in control have low ethics.  They are also not well educated as they are following Keynesian methodologies of economic thought.

The CBO is a little better but not much.  So as far as I am concerned, this whole health care law is a bait and switch to continue taking our money and shoving it into the pockets of special interests.  This is the latest from the CBO.  The new REPORT states:

“CBO estimates that total authorized costs in the first two categories probably exceed$115 billion over the 2010-2019 period, as detailed below.1 We do not have an estimate of the potential costs of authorizations in the third category.”
The problem I see with this statement is not just the $115 BILLION dollar mistake, but also the fact that the “third” part of the initiative has not been fully reviewed.  Contractors know that means there is likely MORE bad news on the way.  In the business world people and companies can be sued for baiting and switching.  One hopes that we can return the law and get our money back and the expense is spared.  If not, there is going to be some additional Tea Party Support in the coming weeks.
