As long as these stories keep cropping up, we are going to keep reporting them. The latest Obamacare find is another $17 trillion funding gap. Let's hope this monstrosity gets struck down before the price tag grows any higher.

Senate Republican staffers continue to look though the 2010 Obamacare law to see what’s in it, and their latest discovery is a massive $17 trillion funding gap.

“The more we learn about the bill, the more we learn it is even more unaffordable than was suspected,” said Ala. Sen. Jeff Sessions, the Republican’s budget chief in the Senate.

“The bill has to be removed from the books because we don’t have the money,” he said.

So far, this puts Obamacare at three times the cost of its original estimate of $900 billion.
