Pay for Obamacare won’t be an easy task.

The government has projected to need to budget about 1.6 TRILLION dollars for healthcare reform for the next 10 years to allow 30-40 million more people to have affordable healthcare in the United States.  This amount is suppose to help decrease the federal budget by $109 billion?  Not sure how they are going to do it but tune in to our podcast today which will explain to you how the government will get money for healthcare reform.

Some of the main ways that the government will collect this money to help pay for Obamacare or healthcare reform is:

  • Hospitals
  • Penalties from large businesses
  • Penalties from individuals who are uninsured
  • Cadillac tax

Baseball rant on What the Foot podcast I talk about Masahiro Tanaka and the NY Yankees and why I think it’s not a good idea to pay for him.  Read up on SI writer Tom Verducii about this pitcher and why he will probably not be worth the money in the long run.

My tech rant on the FitBit force.  My wonderful wife got me a late Christmas gift this year to help motivate me to exercise.  Listen to hear more about the cool workout device.
