Well it looks like some financial shenanigans in the bill make it look "efficient". However this is not the case.

The key to the funding is to collect the taxes for it 3 years prior to it is enacted. Then once the bill becomes law and the finances from the first 3 years are used the costs climbs astronomically.

The total price of the bill well be well north of 1 trillion dollars.

Stick a fork in it.

Wasn't Medicare initially only supposed to cost $3 billion to start and $12 billion after 10 years? Now it is what, over $100billion?
