According to calculations by conservative think tank American Action Forum, President Barack Obama's healthcare reform measures have cost states and private businesses more than $27 billion.

That's about $20 million for compliance costs shouldered by private companies and just over $7 billion paid by state governments, Healthwatch reported.

90% of those costs can be attributed to the 10 most expensive programs, according to the AAF.
