But on Wednesday, Scott's own health care agency released new cost estimates of as little as $3 billion over the next decade. The startling turnabout is likely to fuel continued criticism that Scott—a longtime critic of President Barack Obama's health care reform—is overstating the numbers to justify his opposition.
