***What is Obamacare costing you?
Cost of ObamaCareCost:
$1.4 Trillion ($1,383,000,000,000) *ObamaCare's coverage provisions will cost the federal government $1.4 trillion (net) over the next 10 fiscal years, according to the CBO. That is the net cost to the federal government of the provisions to expand and subsidize health insurance coverage over the fiscal 2015-2024 period.

Since some will pay large penalties and some will pay none, this taxpayer calculator analysis doesn't attempt to distribute the $456 billion in coverage spending that is expected to be offset by penalties, excise taxes, and some other tax revenues.
