The Congressional Budget Office reports Obamacare will cost $2 Trillion, $1.35 Trillion for everyone enrolled in Obamacare ($50,000 per person), premiums plus subsidies, and $643 Billion to pay for the expansion of Medicaid and CHIP (Children’s Health Insurance Program). Costs will be paid by the federal government (taxpayers) and $643 Billion in taxes, penalties and fees.
