So Far, Each ObamaCare Enrollee Has Cost Taxpayers $14,000

Over at Americans for Tax Reform, they’ve done the math.

With $4.5 billion of taxpayer money shelled out so far to promote Obamacare at the state level and another $677 million for that glitch-riddled website — all to sign up 364,682 “enrollees” — the government cost is moving along at a rate of $14,000 per person!

And that’s just to get ‘em in the program. The costs of ObamaCare itself aren’t even in the equation yet!

It's your tax dollars at…check that; it certainly ain’t your tax dollars at work. But it is your tax dollars being spent -- and not on new fighter jets, Social Security, meat inspectors or the interstate highway system.

My, how far afield the priorities of government have gone.
