CBO: Pelosi's Bill Costs $3 Trillion $2.4 Trillion Over 10 Years

Commenter Perry thinks the $1.05 trillion price tag for Obamacare is just ducky, cuz besides believing in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, he also thinks it will cut the deficit. I pointed out to him that the plan doesn't even have any benefits until 2013 or 2014. But the price tag of Obamacare for 10 years when there are benefits (as well as raping you in taxes) is a shocker: $3 trillion.
We can't afford this monstrosity. It would be cheaper to buy a catastrophic plan for 45 million people.

UPDATE: Via Hot Air, the CBO puts the cost at $2.4 trillion.
