Funding ObozoCare Is Expensive

It is rumored that Boehner/Cantor/Ryan are giving up on the ObozoCare fight.  That's not exactly surprising; they had shown their hand with the "delay, not de-fund" gambit.

That's one helluva strategy!  Fire one round of ammo, then run like hell. 

Ryan's Budget Committee will be writing a large check, too.

The exact cost to build, according to U.S. government records, appears to have been $634,320,919

No doubt the usual Congress-slime will make the usual TV appearance denouncing the usual 'waste and fraud' before going to the usual club for dinner with the usual DC pals and spending the usual $150/person for drinks and dinner.

$150 in DC for drinks and dinner is cheap.

Prediction - they won't even get the medical device tax repeal they really wanted all along because Dingy, Teh SCOAMT and Nurse Kathy Ratched need that money to hand out the subsidies both halves of the bipartisan Party-In-Government LOVE!

Leave the predictions to people who can set aside their emotional braying. Surely even Egg knows that a majority of the gummint hand-outs go to red states.

The writing is on the wall for the tea baggers. Soon they'll be out of work and be forced to enroll in the ACA.
