    Re: CBO Numbers [have just come out]

    so much repetition required pedagogically

    patience a plus:

    half the "deficit reduction" comes from "savings" supposedly found in school loans

    there is a quarter tril doc fix, not paid for

    House passes Medicare 'doc fix,' 243-183 - TheHill.com

    there is a double counting of another quarter T, says cbo

    Budget Office Rebuts Democratic Claims on Medicare (Update1) - Bloomberg.com

    there's 10 years of taxes vs 6 of benefits

    RealClearPolitics - Senator Ben Nelson on the Senate Health Care Bill

    cbo scored what leadership put in front of it, naturally

    meanwhile, bay state treasurer tim cahill, overseer of romney-care, says america will go bankrupt if it passes this bill

    Tim Cahill slams Barack Obama, Dems on health care - BostonHerald.com

    pretty much all america knows it

    you can't expand m and m by tens of millions while simultaneously trimming them massively

    as certain as gravity

    the only reason to pass this monstrosity is to try to rescue obama's dead presidency

    and even that won't work

    party on, progressives

    rapidly o'er the precipice

    Meanwhile the bribes keep coming... the Cornhusker Kickback is out, now $500 Million (yes that's 1/2 a Billion dollars) for a new Omaha VA hospital is in, in, in.

    Health-vote ally Nelson to get new VA hospital for Nebraska - Washington Times

    Tennessee? $100 million for Medicaid

    North Dakota? An exemption for the 1 bank left in the country allowed to lend Student Loans after the Dept. of Education becomes the 6th or 7th (depending who you read) largest bank in the country.


    This is downright corruption and while the pundits call this the normal horse trading, it has to stop on both sides of the isle. If health scare did one thing, it has opened up these processes the the exposure of light and has informed people of the shenanigans going on to a new depth. And yes, we do care about the process; the Constitution is after all, a list of processes.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    No, it's not corruption. And it's hardly new.

    Re: CBO Numbers [have just come out]

    there're rumors of a lot more bribes

    a nasa appointment for tennessee's gordon who's retiring

    an ambassadorship for tanner of tennessee

    a bank exemption concerning school loans for dakota

    the connecticut hospital deal is still in for dodd

    more water for the central valley's cardoza and costa

    lots of bribes still in there and not enough time for people even to read the bill to find em all

    pass this at your peril, progressives

    you will not revive your presidency, his entire platform will still be kaput

    his polls will plummet below 40, guaranteed

    it's already happening

    the word DEEM is way too out there, way too prominent

    it's not a good word, politically speaking

    politics is sound bites and buzz words

    you may win passage of this bill

    but i and mine will butcher you in the battle of the buzz

    barbara boxer, bye bye

    it's that bad

    and yet you cannot offer anything which undermines the CBO's presentation

    wait ... you did (try to) use the CBO report as evidence against itself

    too funny

    So you're okay with the status quo, as long as it's YOUR status quo. Laughable.

    Nope. Didn't say that at all. Don't straw man me. Read my words.
