How 'bout ANOTHER $17 Trillion ObamneyCareBux©?

Last time we looked, ObamneyCare© had racked up an additional $111 billion cost overrun, and we remarked at the time how ironic it was that that might have been a low-ball guesstimate.

Little did we suspect, though, a "massive $17 trillion funding gap."


"The $17 trillion in extra promises was revealed by an analysis of the law’s long-term requirements ... when combined with existing Medicare and Medicaid funding shortfalls, leaves taxpayers on the hook for an extra $82 trillion in health care obligations"

Which begs the continuing question: How many more of these little nuggets still lurk in the belly of the beast we had to pass in order to find out what's in it?
