Let the blame game begin over ObamaCare’s oversights.

The nation’s largest health insurer, UnitedHealthcare, claims the Affordable Care Act is responsible for forcing it to boot doctors from its Medicare Advantage program that serves thousands of elderly patients in the New York metro region.

CEO Jack Larsen, under fire for separating seniors from their MDs, took out full-page ads to explain that cuts in Medicare spending forced the ­insurer’s hand.

“We are working to collaborate with a more focused network of physicians to help us provide higher quality and more affordable health care coverage to meet the needs of our members, and help them get more from their health plan benefits,” Larsen said.

“This work has become even more urgent in light of the severe funding reductions for Medicare Advantage plans that have come from Washington.”

Even fervent supporters of ObamaCare are investigating complaints that elderly patients are being unnecessarily separated from their doctors.

“We’ve met with New York doctors and we’re looking for the best way to ensure seniors maintain access to the doctors they want,” said Max Young, a spokesman for Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY).

“We’re looking at why United has kicked doctors off their plan, and if their explanations are truthful.”

The politicians will soon be hearing from enraged seniors.

The state medical society has drafted a form letter that is being handed out to patients in doctors’ offices throughout the city.

“The timing of this action seems curious. Insurance companies are taking full advantage of the chaos surrounding the rollout of the Affordable Healthcare Act. Did they think seniors would not be paying attention to this issue while the spotlight was focused on the glitches related to the national health care program?” reads the protest letter to Congress .

Meanwhile state insurance officials are warning that medical premiums could skyrocket in year two of ObamaCare, if not enough of the so-called “young invincibles” sign up for coverage in year one, which is 2014.

“If you don’t have that young healthy population enrolling, it’s going to have an impact on premiums,” said Leslie Moran of the New York Health Plan Association, the trade group for commercial insurers.

State, federal and insurance officials have yet to release the age and demographic data of those who have signed up, leading critics to suspect the worst.

“We are not providing any enrollment information at this time,” said Maria Gordon-Shydlo, aa UnitedHealthcare spokesman said.

The state Health Department said an age breakdown will be released shortly.

<quoted text>Bullsht__the shuttle program had been extended several times and NASA lost interest in the replacement vehicles well before Obama was even a blip on the radar. The hammer dropped in April 2008 when in a press conference the agency outlined the potential job losses.
You can find find articles on google dating to 2004.
I thought you fancied yourself as a space guy.
You Bullchit too Comrade..

WASHINGTON (11/15/2011)– Congress is set to approve $406 million for the program that will replace the space shuttle — less than half what NASA originally requested.

The allocation for the commercial crew program, which will team the space agency with private companies to develop a new vehicle for taking astronauts to the International Space Station, is part of a spending bill that will finance several federal agencies, including the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, in fiscal 2012.

The compromise legislation was brokered by House and Senate negotiators and is expected to pass later this week.

It would provide $17.8 billion for the space agency —$648 million below the fiscal 2011 level and $924 million less than President Barack Obama requested.

NASA could have fared worse. The original House proposal called for $1 billion less than what's in the compromise.

The James Webb Space Telescope, the agency's top science priority, would receive the $529 million it needs to proceed with a 2018 launch. House lawmakers had proposed giving the project nothing unless NASA identified programs to delay or eliminate in order to pay for the $8.8 billion telescope, which has been beset by cost overruns.

Other NASA-related provisions in the budget deal would provide:

—$1.2 billion for the Orion multi-purpose crew vehicle

—$1.86 billion for the Space Launch System, the heavy-lift rocket that will carry Orion on a planned Mars mission.

—$573 million related to retirement of the space shuttle.

—$2.8 billion for the space station.

Another provision would continue to bar NASA and the Office of Science and Technology Policy from engaging in bilateral activities with China unless authorized by Congress.

Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Florida, called the deal "good news" for the space program.

"This budget makes a major investment in the next generation of human space flight," he said.

NASA officials have pushed Congress to provide full funding for the commercial crew program, which will help private companies design, build and launch spacecraft to and from the space station.

NASA originally was aiming for an initial launch in 2015, but administrators have suggested that could be pushed back to 2017 or later without adequate funding.

"At first glance, we are concerned about the funding level for commercial crew, which is significantly below the president's request and could extend the length of our dependence on Russia to get to space," NASA spokesman Michael Cabbage said Tuesday.

NASA has agreed to pay Russia for seats on its Soyuz rockets to get to the space station. The price per round trip is about $62 million, according to the agency.

Dale Ketcham, director of the Spaceport Research & Technology Institute at the University of Central Florida, called it a "very disappointing decision to direct more money to Moscow."

I've been there and seen how Israel treats Palestinians, I know about Shatilla and Sabra. I know why Sharon was called the butcher of Lebanon. Israel is the biggest terrorist state in tje Middle East. They stab us in the back when ever it is convenient. Just ask Jonathon Pollard.

No one is talking about the less fortunate. Safety nets have always been in place because we are a compassionate people. Charities and government programs we all gladly pay for as well as ER visits because no one is denied medical care in this country which taxpayers also pay for are meant to help the less fortunate. And private contributions make a huge difference.
We're talking about big government, aka Obama, opening the floodgates of welfare to anyone and everyone and it becoming a permanent lifestyle with no personal responsibility or conscience in doing so.
Do you have ANY idea how much money is wasted on fraud and abuse in the welfare system? Now would be a good time to look it up if you don't. Pick any source of your choosing.
FACT: Defense contractor fraud...is "roughly in the same range as Medicare and Medicaid combined." Where's your outrage?

"Entitlement programs, from food stamps to Medicare, don't see unusually high cheating rates -- and the culprits are usually managers and executives, not "welfare queens."

"A bevy of inspector general reports found “improper payment” levels of 20 to 40 percent in state TANF programs -- but when you look at the reports, the payments appear all to be due to bureaucratic incompetence (categorized by the inspector general as either “eligibility and payment calculation errors” or “documentation errors”), rather than intentional fraud by beneficiaries."

"The majority of food-stamp fraud appears to be generated by supermarkets “trafficking” in the food stamps. Beneficiaries intentionally ripping off the taxpayers account for perhaps 1 percent of payments."

http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2...

Myth:”People on welfare are lazy and sit at home collecting it while the rest of us work to support them.”

Fact: The welfare reform law that was signed by President Clinton in 1996 largely turned control over welfare benefits to the states, but the federal government provides some of the funding for state welfare programs through a program called Temporary Assistance For Needy Families (TANF). TANF grants to states require that all welfare recipients must find work within two years of first receiving benefits. This includes single parents, who are required to work at least 30 hours per week. Two parent families are required to work 35 to 50 hours per week. Failure to obtain work could result in loss of benefits. It is also worth noting that thanks to the pay offerings of companies such as Walmart, many who work at low wage jobs qualify for public assistance, even though they work full time.

Now I can’t speak to the issue of whether welfare recipients want to work, but the law gives them no choice; within two years they have to find work or face losing benefits. This fact about welfare was what Mitt Romney brought up during the campaign when he claimed that President Obama was going to get rid of the work requirements for welfare, which was a lie. Several governors, including the Republican governors of Utah and Nevada, requested a waiver of the work requirement for various reasons."
