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.
