Healthcare reform measures put in place by President Barack Obama have already cost states and private companies more than $27 billion, according to the right-leaning American Action Forum.
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.
