Obamacare will no more deficit neutral than Social Security is.

It won't be neutral, it will bring the deficit down.

That is not what it reported.

It said it could add as much as 6 trillion IF the cost cutting measures that are a part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) are phased out or removed over time.

The bill as it is constituted right now and fully implemented, would reduce the deficit according to the GAO and the CBO if it were left intact over the 75 year period.

What you are referring to is a study that was commissioned at the request of Republican Jeff Sessions with the hypothetical that the cost containment mechanisms were phased out and removed over time while the other costs of Obamacare remained.

These phase outs are not a part of this bill and is not part of the plan. If no one messes with the bill, in particular the cost cutting measures, Obamacare will reduce the deficit significantly (as much as possibly 13 trillion).

This is a parlor trick for Republicans to trick their followers who live in the Fox News/Rush Limbaugh bubble.
