After 2008, it becomes harder to separate spending that was initiated under Mr. Bush from that under Mr. Obama. We do know that spending for Part D has risen rapidly – Republicans phased in the program to disguise its budgetary cost – adding $150 billion to the debt during 2009-11.

Budget office: Obama’s health law reduces deficit
Congress’ budget scorekeepers are taking a new look at President Barack Obama’s health care law – and they still say it is expected to reduce federal deficits.
It’s the first in-depth look by nonpartisan experts since the Supreme Court upheld most of the law last month.
The court made one exception: States don’t have to sign on to a planned expansion of Medicaid for their low-income residents. The Congressional Budget Office said Tuesday that that could reduce the number of people covered by several million. But taxpayers would also save on costs.
Overall, spending cuts and tax increases in Obama’s law more than offset new spending,
Repealing the law, as Republicans want to do, would increase the deficit by $109 billion from 2013 to 2022.

not that facts matter to you, but there ya go.
Medicare has two trust funds--the Medicare Hospital Insurance Part A fund and the Supplemental Medical Insurance fund. Medicare Part B Medical Insurance and Part D Prescription Drug Plan have separate accounts within the SMI fund. At the end of 2008 the Part D account had assets of $911 million.

Many unaffiliated voter, Republicans and especially Libertarians believe in self-sufficiency, Dumb Dave. Of course, as moderates, we also believe in assistance for those that need it.

You and your hero Obama, Socialists, believe in a welfare state on the other hand, end encourage dependency, as you are moochers.

I hope that clears things up for you, Dumb Dave.

The Brazilian government admitted Monday that its top intelligence agency spied on diplomatic targets from several countries including the United States, the New York Times reported.
The admission came in response to a report published Monday in Folha de Sao Paulo. The Brazilian newspaper revealed that the Brazilian Intelligence Agency, also known as Abin, followed the movements of Russian and Iranian diplomats and monitored a property leased by the U.S. embassy in the country's capital, according to the Times.
Brazil's Institutional Security Cabinet said in a statement translated by the Times that the intelligence operations it oversees involve basic surveillance of diplomats within Brazil and are in "absolute compliance" with the law. Intelligence officials also insisted that Abin's surveillance was conducted in the interest of "national sovereignty," as translated by the Times.
The revelation of Brazil's spying on diplomatic targets comes after President Dilma Rousseff and President Barack Obama agreed to postpone a state visit to the White House, scheduled for October, over reports that the National Security Agency monitored Rousseff's personal communications.

How many Democrat mass murders have there been in the past 10 years?... can you count them all?
There are so many Democrat mass murders, if you tried to list all of them there'd always be a couple you just didn't recall.
Help us out here. Let's see if you can list all the Democrat mass murderers and not forget anyone:
We have to pick a starting point, I guess... there are so many.

Why are the United States Armed Forces training Al Qaeda terrorists on a US military base in Jordan?

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
Oh, hell. Why stop now....
Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi?
... maybe one more...
Why didn't Obama have a clue the ObamaKare website was f*ck*d to hell and back when every other person in the entire administration knew it?
... another one comes to mind....
Why did we need to pay Obama to write the software when Michelle's classmate from Princeton was going to steal it?
.... maybe one more.....
Why was Obama so ignorant about what was written in ObamaKare, he made some ludicrous statement like "if you like your health care plan, you can keep it"?
Even you have to admit only the most ignorant person in the room would say something like that. Everyone knew that was a lie as soon as it came out of his mouth?
Would you call Obama the most ignorant president we ever had?
(You don't have to answer this question. You need all your abilities to answer the previous ones you continually run away from.)
lol! Son, why do you keep demanding others answer for you?

You have such a problem!

ObamaCare - Global Program

The dictatorial health care model as expressed by Obamacare is being implemented as part of a larger Global Program. The World Health Organization announced last year that it hopes to implement – via a U.N. resolution –“universal health coverage” across the globe by 2015 in fulfillment of its Millennium Development Goals. The Rockefeller Foundation is working with WHO in the project.“There is a global movement towards UHC (Universal Health Care) and it is gathering momentum,” said Judith Rodin, President of the Rockefeller Foundation.

The federal government’s “Behavioral Insight Teams” are seeking to subtly steer the public into falling in line with the establishment.

These “Nudge Squads” are partly the creation of Cass Sunstein, the White House Information czar.

He usually makes appointments for the DMV. Just swung by after work today and only had to wait 2-1/2 to 3 hours - not so bad considering we won't be able to make appointments to have shorter waiting times in doctors' offices and ERs.

When Is the car thief Issa going to hold hearings on Cruz & Boehner stealing 24 billion from our economy?
Even the largest estimate of $24 billion comes to only 0.0015 of the total economy, or 0.15% of the $16 trillion GDP. And another thing — why do liberals always assume government spending equals growth? I mean, why not spend a bazillion dollars then?
No one cares about the shut down anymore. Oh wait they are now understanding why it happened... mm mmm mmm. We have moved on to the real pain. Pain-in-everyone's ass called O'bamaliarcare.
