Woopsie! ObamaCare Misses 17 Million

Besides the staggering cost (at least $1Trillion, probably $1.6Trillion, possibly $4Trillion), there's another little problem with ObamaCare:

An analysis released Monday by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office raised the hurdles for draft legislation in the Senate just as its Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee planned to begin voting on Wednesday. The office concluded that a plan by the committee’s Democratic leaders, Senators Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts and Christopher J. Dodd of Connecticut, would reduce the number of uninsured only by a net 16 million people. Even if the bill became law, the budget office said, 36 million people would remain uninsured in 2017.

So who knows? Should we simply multiply the costs to compensate for the remaining un-insured?
