    Health care reform adds more than $1 trillion to the deficit

    TRUTH

    The health care reform law is projected to reduce the deficit by $109 billion over 10 years


    Claims like this often cite estimates from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO). However, these claims use only the provisions of the health care law that expand insurance coverage, and not the ones that generate new tax revenue and control costs. The whole law is projected to reduce the deficit. The CBO wrote in July 2012 that repealing the law “would increase federal budget deficits by $109 billion over the 2013–2022 period.”
