    Re: Budget chief contradicts Obama on Medicare costs

    You do realize that there are MULTIPLE bills being tossed around right now correct? Holy cow, you'd think that just because 1 of XX bills was talked about this way that it's somehow a victory for those who are against reform during this presidency. Congratulations (I guess), now you just have all the other bills to go after.

    But clearly you are of the opinion that Obama supports the bill that, wait which one was denounced, oh yeah that one, he supports that bill!

    Simmer down people, simmer down.

    So your response is a bunch of acronyms indicating laughter? Forgive me if I don't take you seriously from now on.

    Seriously, Baucus' bill was rated poorly and now the entire project should be scrapped and started over? Of course you never bothered to think of the possibility that it might have been rated higher or lower depending on if they included what the more liberal democrats actually wanted instead of the piecemeal plan that Baucus released. That of course wouldn't fit into your predetermined judgment of their ideas.

    Re: Budget chief contradicts Obama on Medicare costs

    In this thread the Obama bashers will take the side of Medicare Advantage.

    A government program that costs tax payers 14% more per patient than regular Medicare.

    Nothing Obama can do will please these folks.

    So ignore them.

    Good idea. That way, when Medicare's outlays surpass its receipts (already started) and when it exhausts its trust fund, (scheduled to happen in 2017), the entire country's health care will suffer, not just that of old people. So long as we're in this together, it's okay.

    Since medicare is going to flop, does that mean I can stop paying into it?

    from now on?

    you USED TO take me seriously?

    LOL!

    the whole world was worriedly waiting for 6 months for the GATEKEEPER

    from day one, the whole thing was gonna come down to senate finance

    and when baucus finally broke with baited breath his over-busied bill, he stood all alone

    not a single democrat and not even olympia snowe would be seen beside beleagured baucus at his puffed up presser

    you suggest that i never thought (LOL!) about the possibility of baucus going over better had he listened to his left?

    LOLOLOL!

    EVERYONE's tried EVERYTHING

    left, right, up, down, forward, backward, center and spin

    NOTHING works

    ask conrad, ask cbo, ask a dozen senators, ask difi, ask the governors, ask the dogs

    heck, even the FRESHMEN will tell you

    haven't you been watching?

    the president overreached

    by a light year

    my predetermined judgement---LOLOLOL!---has nothing to do with anything

    piecemeal?

    baucus?

    with all due respect, you don't know what you're talking about

    and seriously, sir, you're cracking me up

    LOL!

    One could almost get the idea that's it's all a deliberate set of actions.


    But I'm sure that's absurd.
