Obamacare’s rising price tag: Never mind!

Yesterday I posted about a CBO report that found another $105 billion in spending over 10 years on health care reform. Today, the CBO clarified things, blogging how $86 billion of that goes to programs that are already in existence. The reform bill would spend the same amount (more or less) on these programs as they currently receive.

That means the spending is already accounted for in any budget projections, except for about $20 billion over 10 years, or a couple of percent on top of the 10-year estimate already in place. In the world of estimates, that is not a big deal.
