I thought it wasn't going to cost $1 trillion

"The House Energy and Commerce Committee Friday night approved a sweeping package of health-care measures, clearing a critical hurdle that sets the stage for a five-week battle for both Democrats and Republicans to define the legislation in voters' minds before the full House votes next month. . . . The legislation, which is likely to cost more than $1 trillion over 10 years, would be financed by cuts in the Medicare and Medicaid system and by taxes on wealthy individuals and businesses."

Remember when those who said this would cost $1 trillion were called liars, because health care reform would be "revenue neutral"?
