CBO: Obamacare saves money, GOP plan costs $109bn

It's surprising that Democrats haven't done a better job of throwing this in the GOP's, and specifically Mitt Romney's, face. Politico:
Overall, the new estimate pegs the costs of the law’s health insurance coverage provisions at $1.2 trillion over 11 years, a figure that is more than offset by new taxes and Medicare cuts. CBO also projected that the House GOP’s effort to repeal the law would add $109 billion to the nation’s debt over 10 years, a number that is far below the $210 billion estimated last year.
