Big Rise In Health Care Spending

New numbers out about the health care reform show a huge rise in spending.

Congressional budget officials say the plan could potentially add another $115 billion over ten years to government health care spending.

If congress approves all the additional spending, that would push the ten year cost to over a trillion dollars.

That number was an unofficial limit the Obama administration set early on.

The additional spending is not automatic, it would specifically require congress to release those funds.
