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
