Lowering the cost of Healthcare will cost $289 Billion

As we have been saying all along........there is nothing in the House proposed healthcare bill that lowers cost. There are lower payments to doctors and hospitals through Medicare and Medicaid reductions. There are higher taxes, fines, penalties and unfunded mandates. There are provisions for jail time for those that will not buy. There are loan forgiveness programs for Veterinarians. There are all kinds of things crammed in this pretend reform, but not one single thing lowers cost. I've said it before, but I just have to say it again-PAYING OUT LESS DOESN'T MEAN YOU HAVE LOWERED COSTS.
However, the CMS analysis clearly states that the House bill falls short in attaining a key goal of the Democrats' effort to reform the nation's healthcare system: "With the exception of the proposed reduction in Medicare... the provisions of H.R. 3962 would not have a significant impact on future healthcare cost growth rates."
We can read and reason Mr. President, can you?
