Not much. I'm pretty sure that lag would not be even perceptible. When
I'm using Tor my traffic encrypts so many times... I haven't noticed any
significant visible slowdown.
Ciphers are pretty fast now. AES is even in hardware [see AES-NI].

If TLS is broken via CA cert then it's broken (no matter which).
