Fiscal Cliff, Day 31: A GOP Entitlement’s Huge Price Tag

Democrats are the party of entitlements, but an overlooked irony in the fiscal cliff stand-off is that it’s the Republican-designed Medicare Part D prescription drug benefit that threatens to explode entitlement costs, by as much as $1 trillion in 10 years.

The Texas Tribune
Likely Increase in Births Has Some Lawmakers Revisiting Cuts

The latest Health and Human Services Commission projections being circulated among Texas lawmakers indicate that during the 2014-15 biennium, poor women will deliver an estimated 23,760 more babies than they would have, as a result of their reduced access to state-subsidized birth control. The additional cost to taxpayers is expected to be as much as $273 million —$103 million to $108 million to the state’s general revenue budget alone — and the bulk of it is the cost of caring for those infants under Medicaid.....

“I’ve debated this in Republican clubs with people — people who say it’s not the government’s role to provide family planning,” said Dr. Deuell, a primary care physician.“Ultimately, they’re right. But you have to look at what happens if we don’t.”

Seriously doubt if even 5% of the high schools in America have a teacher "qualified to teach calculus to a future engineer."
5% of engineers aren't capable of truly understanding calculus.

Yes. We have a secret plan to supply guns to the black community so that they will shoot each other, then we deny them medical care so that they are sure to die. What a plan!
The drug trade is also a secret white plan to kill blacks. The slave trader who invented this plan receives a bonus for each black overdose.
And you guys are fully cooperative
Problem is, according to your great intellect, we are killing off our own slave laborers, which makes no sense.
Well Reagan created crack and aids to kill off black people but we were too smart to fall for it.

The Obama FEMA response in New York and New Jersey has been a total failure, worse than Katrina, which is no surprise.
96% of the people are quite satisfied with the way President Obama has handled the disaster. The 4% who aren't are just people who are unsatisfied with everything. George Bush only got 23% approval for his mishandling of Katrina. He was too busy destroying the economy and starting wars.

Syria next, because of Saddam Hussein's chemical weapons.
If Isreal would just let Palestine be a state all this terrorism would come to an end. The problems in the middle east begin with Isreal. We need to get out of Middle East and solve our problems at home, like Americans addiction to guns and clean energy awareness.

Correct. Limbaugh's business model is to provide the program content to the stations in exchange for advertising time that he markets.
Russ Limbaug's a fat blowhard racist drug addict. He's losing listeners by the millions. People are tired of him consistently lying and bashing their President and the First Lady.

Because of President Obama's leadership and planning skills the entire area is pretty much back to normal.

No child can get a correct education without school. That's why there required to go to school. School is for learning. Home is for other stuff. Only a trained teacher with educational training can supply a child with a proper educaton.

Only because the regime decreed that 540,000 people were no longer in the workforce, perhaps because they no longer see any value in working or need to work.
The regime continues to lie about the economy even after the election. Pathetic.
The economy is improving more day by day. You can't expect President Obama to fix in four years whit it took Bush eight years to destroy.

Obama Era excuse:
"the dog ate my homework, the president ate my dog, and it is all Bush's fault, and you're a racist for asking a question I don't like"
Most people who don't like President Obama are racists. If he was white they would have voted for him and he'd won by 90%.

John Galt furiously searching the internet for stories showing Fema/Obama in a bad light regarding Sandy.
The only people unhappy about the job President Obama and FEMA have done are spoiled, rich republicans. They think the goverment should give them a new house free while at the same time complaining about giving starving children a few food stamps. Even Republican Governor Cristie has praised both the President and FEMA publically for their excellent response. Republicans live in a fantasy land.

I would like to know what kind of parent thinks they can teach their kids.
Plopping them down in front of a computer to listen to some cyber school broadcast?
There is nothing wrong with our public school system that a good parent can't solve.
The public schools are low because the republicans keep blocking the Natonal Education Associations efforts to improve public school education an want teachers to work for slave wages like Walmart and Mcdonalds.

How about a parent who is also a teacher, or a scientist, or an engineer, or a physician?
Many of those who home-school do so because their children are of above-average intelligence and/or achievement and are held back by schools that teach to the lowest common denominator.
If your child can already read and do basic arithmetic, why send him to first grade, wasting his time?
They teach many other things in first grade beside reading and arithmatic, stupid.

I have come to the conclusion that we should just get out of the way and let the democrat/progressives have their way. Let them own it all. The fastest way to fix this problem is, maybe, to just let the democrats totally crash and burn the system. Then we can pick up the pieces and rebuild the country the way it's suppose to be. Rand Paul is right. Give it to them.
Rand Paul is a racist sociopath just like his father.

This is a great pub a friend only recently introduced me to. They allow smoking but must have great ventilation 'cause its never smokey and I won't sit anywhere smokey. Great fish & chips too.
Smoking should be outlawed everywhere. Next to guns, smoking accounts for the highest percentage of America's health care costs. If smoking and guns were banned, healthcare costs would drop immensly.
