I said funded.

Funding is where Congress passes a bill that spends money & includes how that spending is funded.

"From the beginning, Republicans decided to forgo dedicated financing for Part D. Except for trivial premiums paid by recipients, the entire cost would fall on taxpayers. Moreover, Republicans refused to raise the Medicare tax or cut spending to cover Part D. Hence, the deficit increased by virtually the entire cost of the program.

Through 2012, Medicare Part D added $318 billion to the national debt (see “General Revenue” on Page 111 in the 2013 Medicare trustees report). That same report projects that Medicare Part D will add $852 billion to the debt over the next 10 years."

I will continue posting it. Only an idiot would think that the IRS can collect enough money from those who refused to enroll to balance the cost.
We all know the Dems cooked the books on their original numbers and their over trumpeted gains when collected will be way off too.
The bottom line is there was a reason the CBO highlighted the cost-they did not see any of the other provisions greatly reducing the costs

A report by the Senate Intelligence Committee concludes that the CIA misled the government and the public about aspects of its brutal interrogation program for years — concealing details about the severity of its methods, overstating the significance of plots and prisoners, and taking credit for critical pieces of intelligence that detainees had in fact surrendered before they were subjected to harsh techniques.

The report, built around detailed chronologies of dozens of CIA detainees, documents a long-standing pattern of unsubstantiated claims as agency officials sought permission to use — and later tried to defend — excruciating interrogation methods that yielded little, if any, significant intelligence, according to U.S. officials who have reviewed the document.

Not surprising considering he's just another "entitled" bumbler shuffled through the Affirmative Action scam. This is what happens when professors play the same game public school teachers do, "passing" along a belligerent who thinks he's entitled to a degree even though he never did any work "in" the classroom. I've sat next to enough of those inside the classroom to know not to ever have one for a doctor. Thank your lucky stars the shythead didn't "dream" of being an air traffic controller.

Marathon victim sues Glenn Beck for defamation
AP Photo
BOSTON (AP)-- A Saudi Arabian man injured in the Boston Marathon bombings has filed a defamation lawsuit against Glenn Beck, accusing the conservative commentator of calling him "the money man" behind the attack.
Abdulrahman Alharbi, 20, said in the lawsuit filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Boston that his reputation was "substantially and severely damaged" as a result of Beck's statements on the air linking him to the bombings.
The lawsuit, which also names the broadcast companies connected to Beck's show, seeks a jury trial and unspecified damages.
In the days after the explosions that killed three people and injured more than 260, Beck "repeatedly and falsely identified Mr. Alharbi as an active participant in the crimes that were committed on April 15, 2013, repeatedly questioned the motives of federal officials in failing to pursue or detain Alharbi and repeatedly and falsely accused Mr. Alharbi of being a criminal who had funded the attacks at the Boston Marathon," the lawsuit alleges...."
You obviously missed my post where I pointed out how idiotic Beck was in his reporting of Abdulrahman Alharbi and stated, much to the ire of our conservative crowd, that I hope Mr. Alharbi wins millions and Beck ends up in the poor house. IMO, if we are to end these malicious attacks, the only way we are going to do it is by hitting these people in their pocketbooks. I wish Mr. Alharbi luck...as well as Shirley Sherrod.

because the techniques they were using were not designed to get credible intel. they were designed to get people to say what you wanted them to say.

If you posted it in the last 5 days, yes I did miss it.

Well, it should be interesting to see how this runs its course. I find it curious reich wingers and people like Beck only like to pick on the 'small guy.' I guess they figure they can't fight back and have little to lose if they're wrong about their opinions.

Obamacare Is as American as the Founding Fathers

Republican opposition to the Affordable Care Act springs from a radical individualism that’s antithetical to why the nation was founded.

Republican opposition to Obamacare isn’t really about how much health care reform will cost or whether people will still be able to still go to their doctors or even about denying their sworn enemy Barack Obama an ounce of political victory. At its essence, Republican opposition to Obamacare derives from a philosophical resistance to being compelled to do anything that benefits others. This radical individualism is not only fundamentally antithetical to traditional conservatism but to the very principles from which our nation was forged in the first place.

....The Constitution of the United States of America begins by stating we formed our great nation to “establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty.” This is not an assertion of radical individualism but rather based on the embrace of mutual association, of the idea that together we can do more than we can do alone, the very principles of nationhood.

In the Federalist Papers, James Madison wrote,“If men were angels, no government would be necessary.” In a nation—in our nation—the whole point is to balance individual self-interest with the common good. Doing so is not antithetical to our nation’s values but, in fact, the entire reason our nation was created in the first place. And believing that as Americans we all have a duty to do things that benefit our fellow citizens and our nation as a whole, isn’t just supporting President Obama and Obamacare. It’s also called patriotism.
