$2.6 Trillion for the 1st 10 years.
That would be about $260 billion per year, if basing on the newer estimates by others.
Consider then, how much will it cost the National Debt if there was NO Healthcare, with more prefering to remain single with an ageing population that
is living longer?
The issue is not about the rise costs, as it will ALWAYS rise naturally over time.
The issues are:-
1 ) to bring the medical care costs down as much as possible,
2) American workers get better living wages through productivity, technology and creativity, and
3) maintain a healthy lifestyle to lower premiums ( not necessarily monk's lifestyle)
There are no problems we mankind cannot solve if we use our heads, instead of fighting one another for political games that only politicians and their
corporate partners gain but not the People.
