Barack Obama, our next President

So tell me. What earthy reason makes you believe we should allow TransCanada to place a pipeline across our country for the purpose of exporting oil to foreign countries when their own provinces won't allow it? Why would you want to allow them to trash our country like that?
Why would Canada not use their own ports if this is the only purpose?

We have pipelines everywhere underground plus cables etc.

CBO and JCT now project that the ACA will increase the number of people enrolled in Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) by more than estimated previously—for example, by 13 million in 2023 rather than 12 million. That increase in projected enrollment stems primarily from our expectation that more potentially newly eligible Medicaid beneficiaries will be residents of states that fully extend Medicaid coverage under the ACA (encompassing people with income up to 138 percent of the federal poverty level). Because of the higher projected enrollment, the costs for Medicaid and CHIP are now expected to be $74 billion greater over the 2014–2023 period than previously estimated.

CBO and JCT now project that fewer people will be enrolled in health insurance exchanges than estimated previously—for example, 24 million in 2023 rather than 25 million. That reduction in projected enrollment is the net effect of several factors, the largest of which is the estimated increase in the share of the potentially eligible population that will reside in states that fully extend Medicaid coverage. Because of the lower projected enrollment in the exchanges and some small modeling changes, the costs for exchange subsidies and related spending are now expected to be $137 billion lower over the 2014–2023 period than previously estimated. In addition, we adjusted our estimates of the share of exchange subsidies that reduces recipients’ tax liability, reducing the share recorded as a revenue loss and increasing the share recorded as outlays. As a result of that shift and other factors, our estimate of the revenues lost through exchange subsidies over the 10-year period is now $138 billion lower, and our estimate of outlays for exchange subsidies and related spending is now less than $1 billion higher, than in the February estimate.

CBO and JCT also now project that the cost of small business tax credits over the 2014–2023 period will be $10 billion lower than previously estimated, reflecting preliminary tax data showing that small businesses continue to be slow in taking advantage of those credits.

The Congressional Budget Office just published a newly updated estimate of the Affordable Care Act and its impact on the budget. The estimate largely tells us what we already knew: The law, when fully implemented, will dramatically reduce the number of Americans without health insurance. It will also reduce the deficit.
This last part remains a big deal, if only because so many conservatives—and, yes, so many members of the public—refuse to believe it. Over and over again, you hear people saying that Obamacare will run up the deficit. The CBO, which is our most reliable guide on such matters, begs to differ.
CBO can't be certain, because nobody can be certain, how exactly the law will play out. But the best available evidence suggests that, in the end, the law will leave the federal treasury with more money than it would have otherwise. And that's just in the short- to medium-term. If the program's efforts at re-engineering the health care system really work, then all spending on health care—from the federal government, corporations, and individuals alike—will stop rising so quickly, freeing up more money for other purposes (like, for example, raises to employees).

whilst Part D just keeps adding to the deficit.
hilarious, Abomination Kare will be the biggest disaster this country has ever seen. Are you really that stupid? Where's the money going to come from for all the new people on medicaid? The tooth fairy?
Who will pay for the subsidies? Santa Claus?

Libs are stupid, those who pay aren't, millions will do everything in their power to avoid being screwed by Oblama and this idiotic, unworkable wealth redistribution scheme.

Yes, Sonic, that is what I said-it doesn't give an overall est of uninsured but sees an increase in Medicaid application and decrease in exchange enrollments.

In truth, Obama's ratings are significantly worse than Bush's or Nixon's. Obama has the media up his ass, lying, cajoling and basically covering for him every chance they get. Bush and Nixon had just the opposite, making their numbers much worse than they really were. This kind of blatant media bias makes these surveys absolutely worthless. I don't believe a damn thing they say.
This is very true. Think the poster, Ray, said the same thing. If Obama were Bush, the media wouldn't have to make up stuff or mislead people or build mountains out of molehills just to sway public opinion against him. They'd only have to hold him accountable for his failed policies, poor leadership, lies and deceptions and cover-ups. And, if that were the case, his approval ratings would be in the negative.

The fact his approval is hovering around 40% in spite of the media ignoring his failed policies and poor leadership and helping him sweep his lies and deceptions and cover-ups under the rug is telling. Considering Bush was only 5 points behind him at the very end of his second term with the media hounding him every step of the way.
Yeah
