President Obama was right. ObamaCare didn't add a dime to the debt--it added trillions of them! Hello, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. When the new health care system kicks in, the source of most patients' pain will be their wallets. Under the latest estimates, the price tag for ObamaCare is already triple what the President promised--and climbing. In a matter of months, the projections have blown past the $900 billion liberals said it would cost in the first 10 years to $2.6 trillion by 2022. And those are just coverage costs! "We spent the whole summer fighting over the debt," said Senator Jeff Sessions, "and here this bill is going to add $2.6 trillion more." And while the price may be higher, the number of insured certainly isn't. Experts say seven million Americans will lose their coverage because employers can't afford it. In other words, we may be tripling costs, but what we're really tripling is trouble.
