I begin to wonder ... how can the CBO make any estimates on the cost of this health care reform when the numbers keep changing.

We all might suspect that Federal taxes are going to end up increasing to pay for this reform, but we may not have thought as much about how much state income (or other) taxes will increase in order to pay for the additional burdens on states' budgets.

Maybe we should all move to Nebraska which will get a free ride with 100% Federal funding for the state burden? I bet the Senators from CA and NY are kicking themselves for not figuring out how much their vote could have been worth to their states :-0

After watching Awwwnooold give his views in his State of the State address, you can bet he's angry his representatives didn't get a large slab of that pie.
