The ACA is fully funded. It funded the expansion of medicaid 100% which tapered down to 90% in 5 years. The revenues generated out of Virginia to cover the costs of expanding Medicaid will just leave the State of Virginia. The funny part is that as Republicans opted out of that expansion because they thought it would show support just cut costs of the ACA making it even more financial revenue plus.
I laugh at your tort reform. We could have had tort reforms years ago if Republicans did not insist on caps.
That is WRONG and a Dem myth

These are REAL figures from actual stats and NOT gin up numbers provided by the Dems.
Dumbass, those numbers are only for the coverage provisions.

"Those estimates address only the insurance coverage provisions of the ACA; they do not constitute all of the act’s budgetary effects. Many other provisions, on net, are projected to reduce budget deficits. Considering all of the coverage provisions and the other provisions together, CBO and JCT estimated in July 2012 (the most recent comprehensive estimates) that the total effect of the ACA would be to reduce federal deficits.

Sure Carol, just keep pushing those damned lies.
Bush ignored the warnings of an imminent attack on US soil and did nothing to stop it.
The housing bubble had already ballooned beyond sustainability when the Democrats took control of Congress STUPID. Fannie and Freddie had very little if anything to do with it LIAR! It was the GOP who refused to regulate the market in mortgage backed securities and credit default swaps that made it profitable for mortgage brokers like Countrywide and Indy Mac to make shaky loans and then dump them before they went south.
We didn't win anything in Iraq you clueless twit! We lost over 4000 American lives and sent thousands more home with shattered limbs and lives. The only ones who gained anything in that war were the Iranians who played George W like fiddle and accomplished what they were unable to on their own using American blood and treasure. You have to be one of the last fools around thinking that Bush's feckless adventure was worth the lives lost and the money spent. Also you keep ignoring the fact that it was George W Bush who signed the withdrawal agreement, not Barack Obama.
Obama inherited the war in Afghanistan dumbass and simply shutting off the lights and going home was never an option FOOL. If he did simply withdraw then it would be a signal to the rest of the region and the world that America is unwilling to fulfill the obligations it takes on and right wing hypocrites like you would accuse him of "cutting and running".
You're an idiot Carol!
Carol does not know history .... most likely took her last history course in secondary school.
More often she posts on history, the more she does damage to her reputation.
President Obama often following policies begun by G W Bush.
ACA is similar to President Bush's expansion of Medicare

More parroting from Fox by the queen Foxbot.
HHS: Young Adults Currently Account For 27 Percent Of Marketplace Plans. An issue brief from the Department of Health and Human Services showed that young adults accounted for "27 percent of the Marketplace plan selections," under the Affordable Care Act so far and that this number "has remained strong," and "is consistent with expectations".
Kaiser Study: 25 Percent Young Adult Enrollees Sufficient To Allow Insurer Profits. A December 17 Kaiser Permanente study found that "the financial consequences of lower enrollment among young adults are not as great as conventional wisdom might suggest." Kaiser's study showed the effect of having 25 percent of young adults in the overall market would "still be expected to earn profits" and that the effect on premiums "would be well below the level that would trigger a 'death spiral'".
You keep willfully ignoring the fact that the individual mandate was originally a Republican idea that came out of the Heritage Foundation, Touted by Newt Gingrich and actually signed into law in Massachusetts by Mitt Romney.
This Marxist "wealth redistribution" thing only exists in hate warped delusional minds like yours.
No this is a myth published by a left wing site. Now for the true figures

CBO and JCT Estimate That the Coverage Provisions of the ACA Will Have a Net Cost to the Federal Government of $1.5 Trillion Over the 2015–2024 Period

The annual net costs are projected to rise noticeably over the next few years—to $151 billion in 2018— and then grow by more modest amounts in the following several years, reaching $173 billion in 2024.

http://cbo.gov/publication/45159

The Dems loaded the bill so the first few years increase costs would be hid and so now as more parts of the bill is being introduced the cost is going up

The funding to cover the expansion of Medicaid under the ACA is federal.( F E D E R A L not S T A T E)

At most in 5 years their share would be 10%. I wonder how much all that federal spending would bring in as state income taxes? I wonder how much those uninsured are costing the State now?
