2. Is it your impression that among economists who have estimated the effect of the health reform law on the federal budget deficit over the next ten years:

In March 2010 Congressional Budget Office released an estimate of how the then-pending health care legislation would affect the deficit if it passed. The CBO calculated that the net effect through 2019 would be to reduce the deficit by $124 billion. Beyond 2019, the CBO estimated that the Affordable Care Act would reduce the deficit by roughly 0.5 percent of GDP. Only 13 percent of voters asked this question got it right. Fifty-three percent said that the legislation will increase the deficit, and another 29 percent said economists are evenly divided on the question. Seventy-two percent of daily Fox News viewers got this wrong.
