Guess who's paying for Obamacare?

Regarding "Report says health care law good deal for states" in The Free Lance-Star on Nov. 27:

The article states that the Barack Obama health care law is good because the states will receive "more than $9 in federal money for every $1 they spend."

It goes on to say that of the $1 trillion cost nationally from 2012 to 2022, the states will pay only--only?--$76 billion and the feds will pay the other $952 billion.

Where, pray tell, will the feds get the money? How long can we expect China to finance our good intentions?
