This might come only as a surprise to loyal Obamacare devotees and those who wrote previous rosy CBO estimates which the White House trumpeted.

From The Hill:

The new healthcare law will cost the nation about 2.3 million jobs by 2021 and contribute to a $1 trillion increase in projected deficits, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) said in a report released Tuesday.

We might as well take this latest CBO estimate and triple it, because the CBO probably will in a year or two.
