How Does ObamaCare Hurt? Let Me Count the Ways

In a brief essay about ObamaCare's "Medicaid" option--which Scott Walker turned down for Wisconsin, we learn that it costs a LOT more than expected.

...About twice as many people enrolled under the expansion as expected, according to a report from the Foundation for Government Accountability. Each new enrollee cost about 76% more than projected.

As a result, states are drowning in Medicaid bills. In North Dakota, expansion cost 163% more than expected over a two-and-a-half-year period. In Louisiana, it cost 115% more over one year. Now, about 1 in every 3 state dollars goes to Medicaid — a jump from one in four before Obamacare.
From 2017 to 2027, Medicaid spending for adults covered under the expansion will hit $938 billion....
Tokin'Tony Evers and his Free-Riding LtGov Barnes would like Wisconsin to jump into this pot of boiling oil.  You see why some think they are irresponsible, if not plain crazy?

Let us not forget the hordes that will gladly jump with him. Fools. The lot of them.
