CMS: Democratic bill would *raise* health care costs.
By almost 300 billion.
The House-approved healthcare overhaul would raise the costs of healthcare by $289 billion over the next 10 years, according to an analysis by the chief actuary at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
This would be infuriating, if I had taken seriously in the first place the notion that an interventionist, intrusive government program was capable of saving the taxpayer money.
PS: For extra points, watch as the Democrats suddenly decide that CMS must be ignored. As opposed to, say, 2004.
