CMS actuaries predict that national health expenditures will rise over the next 10 years by $311 billion under the new reform law, but warned that actual impact is highly uncertain and that scores of provisions in the package aim to reduce the cost of care.

That’s $77 billion more than an earlier assessment of the version of the reform proposal approved by the Senate in December, which served as the core of the legislation that was signed into law in March. Under the earlier proposal, federal actuaries said expenditures would increase $234 billion over the next decade.

That makes total sense to me. The figures being churned out by this corrupt administration were never accurate to begin with. I wouldn’t be surprised if it becomes even more than $77 billion more now being projected.
