The Congressional Budget Office has changed their mind…again…and says that the ten year cost projection for the Affordable Care Act will be $100 billion less than they thought recently The White House took credit (of course) saying “this report demonstrates the Affordable Care Act is working. It shows that marketplace health care costs have gone down because premium estimates have gone down. Additionally, the effort to constrain health care costs more broadly is showing continued momentum, as evidenced by the further deduction in projected Medicare spending” Of course, the cost is still enormous – $1.383 trillion over the next decade
