There has always been a lot of credence (and a lot of press) devoted to the true value, or true cost of the Affordable Care Act. Now, the objective CBO, the one on which many rely to give the “facts” about the cost of various pieces of legislation, has said that “scoring” Obamacare has become impossible. “The provisions that expand insurance coverage established entirely new programs or components of programs that can be isolated and reassessed. In contrast, other provisions of the ACA significantly modified existing federal programs and made changes to the Internal Revenue Code” This came in a footnote at the end of the CBO April report.
