My God, Flack. Get a f*cking grip.

The GAO answered the question of what would happen if the cost saving measures were no longer valid.

You people are just plain dumber than sh*t.

What wouldn't add to the debt if you continues spending but cut the funding.

"OMG OMF OMG Obamacare adds to the debt wen we eliminate the funding OMG OMG OMG.

GOP Senator Knowingly Distorts GAO Report He Commissioned To Launch Most Dishonest Attack On Obamacare To Date -

Last week, the right-wing blogosphere gleefully erupted in response to Senator Jeff Sessions’(R-Ala.) disclosure of a new Government Accounting Office report that, according to the Senator, reveals that the Affordable Care Act will increase our national debt by a stunning $6.2 trillion.

Speaking at a Budget Committee meeting, Sessions announced—

“According to GAO, under a realistic set of assumptions, the health care law will increase the deficit by…roughly $6.2 trillion over the next 75 years.”

Take note of the Senator’s statement that the finding is based on ‘a realistic set of assumptions’ as this is, as you will see, at the very heart of Senator Sessions’ extraordinary deception—one designed to purposefully and cynically mislead the American public.

The first track assessed the impact Obamacare might have on the long-term national debt should the law be carried out exactly as it is written and currently exists.

In response this question, the GAO study reported,“The primary deficit declined 1.5 percentage points as a share of GDP over the 75-year period in this (GAO’s Baseline Extended) simulation.”

That is a very good and highly encouraging number—and one that Senator Sessions somehow forgot to mention during his media blitz. Go figure.

The second analysis required the GAO to project what might happen to the long-term national debt under the following circumstances; (a) Congress acts to end each and every one of the tax provisions that are a critical part of the financing mechanism for the law,(b) each and every cost cutting measure in the law fails completely, and (c) every dollar of spending under the law remaining completely untouched.

In other words, Senator Sessions constructed the absolute “worst case” scenario for the second part of the study.

It was the result of this second line of inquiry that produced the projected deficit in the $6.25 trillion range—not, by the way, a projection of what the GAO believes is going to happen but rather the projection based on the data the GAO was required to use in conducting this part of the study.

The UN gave this dictator 15 resolutions to prove he no longer had WMDs. After every resolution, they got the Iraqi finger. So the last time they threatened "serious consequences" when they can't even fight themselves out of a wet paper bag.
In other words, the UN is impotent and pointless. Only Obama thinks they have any credibility and waits for them to tell him what to do.
Powell turned out to be a big disappointment in more ways than one.
So which resolutions are you referring to that bushie boy used to invade iraq, son?

EGYPT BANS MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD GROUP


CAIRO (AP)-- An Egyptian court has banned the Muslim Brotherhood group and ordered its assets confiscated in a dramatic escalation of a crackdown by the military-backed government against supporters of the ousted Islamist president Mohammed Morsi.

Egypt state TV said the court issued its ruling on Monday.

The Brotherhood was outlawed for most of its 85 years in existence. But after the 2011 ouster of autocrat Hosni Mubarak, it was allowed to work openly, formed a political party and rose to power in a string of post-Mubarak elections. In March, it registered as a recognized non-governmental organization.

*The United States should follow Egypt's example, O'bama would have to go.
That happens when you are nice to Muslims.

Chris Christie Says Yes To Obamacare Medicaid Expansion

After taking his time to do the research rather than simply reacting in a politically expedient way that put party before the people of his state, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has concluded that accepting the expanded Medicaid portion of the Affordable Care Act for New Jersey is, in the Governor’s words,“the smart thing to do for our fiscal and public health.”

Christie becomes the latest Republican governor, following on the heels of Florida GOP Governor Rick Scott, to set aside the Republican anti-Obamacare agenda, no matter who gets hurt, and do what is in the best interest of his state.

In making his announcement, Christie added—

“Accepting these federal resources will provide health insurance to tens of thousand of low-income New Jerseyans, help keep our hospitals financially healthy and actually save money for New Jersey taxpayers.”

In other words, Chris Christie gets it.

I guess that will cost him the Republican nomination.
