Obamacare will cost taxpayers twice the CBO estimate

From Fox News:
A new report from a joint congressional GOP panel says President Obama's health care reforms will cost $118 billion through 2023 -- twice the estimate claimed by the administration... [and], more than twice the Congressional Budget Office estimate of $60 billion through 2021....

Sen. Orrin Hatch, the ranking member of the Senate finance panel that joined the report, said... "It's time for Congress to peel this program back by putting states, not the federal government, back in charge."...
Mr. Hatch called the new health care legislation, a 'Dumb-Ass Program'.
