Do the math

I’m not writing this letter to argue whether Obamacare is good or bad for the nation. Whether it will succeed or falter.

A recent letter to the editor stated that the price of the Obamacare website is approaching $1 billion. The author went on to further state that the website would cost, “over $3 dollars for every man woman and child in this great nation.”

Basic, elementary school arithmetic shows that this figure is way off.

Grab your calculator. Divide one billion dollars by 314 million Americans. That equals out to $3.14 per person.

Still believe it costs $3 million an America? Well, multiply 314 million Americans by 3 million dollars.

The answer is 942 trillion. When Obamacare costs $942 trillion, then yes, you can conclude it costs three million a person.

Do the math.
