Many people have said that there is no way Obama care can be totally self funding, it has to be subsidized by Federal funds. If this is true, from where are the funds generated?
ObamaCare is paid for by a mix of taxes and cost controlling measures which curb the growth pre-aca health care spending. It is funded by Federal and State tax dollars. The term self funding means that it was created in a way that the money saved was then used to fund the program. Learn more about ObamaCare's costs.
In other words, it's not just new federal spending, it's new spending offset by taxes and cost curbing... Which could be described as self funding. It would be more accurate to say the ACA is mostly self-funded. As more people take advantage of subsidies and Medicaid expansion and as costs in healthcare rise from 2015-2025, healthcare spending in general will require further cost cutting or funding to support itself to avoid having a negative impact on the deficit.
