CBO Updates on Obamacare: It's Not Looking Good

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has taken another look at the health care reform bill currently in the senate, and they've found out a couple things that aren't going to help those wanting to get it passed.

According to a recent CNSNews article, the current Senate health care bill will force some middle class Americans to pay what amounts to a $15,200 federally mandated yearly insurance fee.  With middle class Americans currently having the make cut backs in order to make ends meet (I should know), no one can possibly afford this, especially in a bad economy.

In another article, the CBO estimates that by 2019, American taxpayers will be spending $196 billion a year on Obamacare, but 24 million will remain uninsured.  Wasn't this whole thing about reducing health care costs and getting Americans the health coverage they need?  I wonder how the media will spin this one.

The more I learn about this monstrosity currently in the Senate, the less I like it.  And apparently, there's a lot of people who agree with me.  According to an e-mail I received from the American Family Association, a new CNN poll suggests 61% of voters are now opposed to Obamacare.
