It is NEVER going to happen Dave as the Dems used the cut in pay-outs for Medicare providers as major part of the funding of the bill.
Every year Congress votes to suspend these cuts. We cannot leave our elderly without providers.
Then you take a look at the est revenues (that doesn't cover the cost) and you see more bloated numbers. These are based on people actually paying the fine. The IRS cannot "collect" the fine but can only reduce it from any returns. Those who pay taxes in or untouchable.
We are not talking fairy tales here but reality-this bill is not funded!
Another dumbass uninformed ignorant loud mouthed right whiner who has no clue.

1) The ACA actually increased medicare payments to doctors.

2)_ The Doc Fox has nothing to do with the ACA. It has to do with a bill passed in the 90's.

3) The CBO aid the ACA reduces the deficit which means it is fully funded.

You just described you leftwingnuts. You morons want to tell mothers they must breastfeed, how many ounces of soda they can purchase, spy on peoples phone calls, text messages, email and internet use. You also want to tell them they must have health insurance, lie about being able to keep their doctors and force 50 year old woman to have maternity coverage.
The list goes on and on, fascist commie.
You are a complete moron.
Vineland nj, think very hard! The difference between you right wingers, and the left wingers is, the lefties commit bigotry, in attempts of equalizing society. You right wingers are bigots by nature, and in vein! You're against abortion for your own religious beliefs, making claims that ," it's what God wants!" Like you all have some type of hidden knowledge, passed down to you, through The Creator. I'm against most of the social views of both parties, but I'm not arrogant enough to inflict my views on the entire country, or world.

GAO Report: Obamacare Adds $6.2 Trillion to Long-Term Deficit

Senator Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.), who requested the report, revealed the findings this morning at a Senate Budget Committee hearing. The report, he said,“confirms everything critics and Republicans were saying about the faults of this bill,” and “dramatically proves that the promises made assuring the nation that the largest new entitlement program in history would not add one dime to the deficit were false.”

Says the dope who kept insisting Obamacare grandfathered in ALL policies.
You are a little slow there. We would save 9 billion by not forcing people to get insured. Free choice. I know this would reduce government as we would need fewer employees and that panics you-but the reality is NO one is rushing in to sign up.
Let's take a look at Table 2 here
http://www.cbo.gov/sites/default/files/cbofil...
I find very interesting the numbers after 10 years-remember we started with 30 million uninsured added 15 million insured people that lost their insurance due to the law and in 10 years and all the cost we end up with 30 million uninsured.
Also read my above post which shows the alleged revenues falls short of the est cost
Don't forget that many of the alleged savings is from reducing Medicare payments to doctors which the Congress suspends ever year.
This like all bills is going to come at a high cost.
The alleged savings never pans out!
1) There was a clause that grandfathered policies that met certain guidelines. If Insurance companies wanted to continue to offer those policies they could as long as they made no major changes.

2) The major costs of the ACA is insuring the uninsured & you are surprised that a bill reducing the number that would be insured reduces cost. No sh*t Sherlock.

3) Read who those 30 million would be? Resident Aliens, People falling in the crascks due to state medicaid rules, & people who preferred to pay the fine.

4) The CBO said the ACA is filly funded & reduces the deficit.

5) The Doc Fix has nothing to do with the ACA.

You are dumber than sh*t.

And just what does this have to do with;
A. Carol not knowing the difference between the debt and the deficit and;
B. the fact that the deficit is dropping?
Answer: Nothing.
For your information the states that take in more money than they pay in federal taxes are more likely to be red states like Mississippi and Alabama and Republican controlled blue states like Wisconsin and Michigan. Blue states like Massachusetts, New York and Connecticut are more likely to take in less than they pay.

The report was in response to what would happen if major cost containment aspects of the ACA were taken out.

From the GAO report:

"The Fall 2010 Alternative simulation assumed cost containment mechanisms specified in PPACA were phased out over time while the additional costs associated with expanding federal health care coverage remained."

Really, and just where does it say that it is our duty to police the whole world? Your problem is obvious from your posts, you have programmed fear that is transposed into political beliefs. We had our own civil war. So, was Korea, Vietnam, Iraq our obligation and why would it be. You gun mentality freaks that actually believe that we are the earths peace keepers are basically "NUTS". We are bound by the constitution to defend our borders and our people not to butt into every one else's problems. One would have thought by now we would have learned to mind our own business. Our defense of Israel has proven to be a big mistake. If we had taken a neutral stance back then we would have millions more alive today and trillions more in money. You idiots on the right think and promote war...You prove it even today after all of our mistakes, with Syria and now Russia, yet most all of your hero's were either draft dodgers or cowards, kinda like you FLAKE.

I stated facts. Why don't you look up in the ACA & tell me where medicare payments to doctors were cut.
Medicare always paid less than than docs could get from insurance companies & private individuals. With the expansion of medicaid, there will be more medicaid patients. This is their concern, not lower payments.
Your article talks about the doc fix which has nothing to do with the ACA.

<quoted text>Speaking of fools, I'm going to use the N word for Obammy: Narcissistic. He is so self absorbed, he has no idea of what a failure he is.
But Obama’s got game — and that goes a long way to explaining why he said Tuesday that he’s more worried about a “nuclear weapon going off in Manhattan” than about Russia’s aggression in the Balkans.
Yes, he was confronting the buzz over the prescience of Mitt Romney, who in a 2012 debate told Obama (to much derision) that Russia is a top adversary that must be confronted.
But Obama was also likely recalling the simulation game he’d played with world leaders earlier in the day.
The simulation featured actors playing a band of terrorists who’d obtained a nuke.(To avoid political-correctness problems, the scenario didn’t mention the bad guys’ goals, affiliation or religion.) The play-terrorists were about to bomb the downtown of some city (again, no specification).
So Obama and other real leaders of the world’s top powers punched out choices on their tablets, indicating what they’d do as the crisis intensified.
Obama loved it.
Simulation is a hot trend for academics, business executives, military planners and political war-roomies. In other words, it’s something 21st century leaders do.
But as the world’s top leaders maneuvered their tablets through a simulated crisis, the guy who was disinvited — Russia’s Vladimir Putin — amassed real tanks and well armed-troops on the eastern border of Ukraine, which Russia hints it may yet invade.
That, Obama & Co. keep reminding us, is 19th century behavior.
As the president told young Europeans Wednesday,“Russia’s leadership is challenging truths that only a few weeks ago seemed self-evident, that in the 21st century the borders of Europe cannot be redrawn with force.”
Question is, how does a 21st century sophisticate answer a 19th century brute? So far the answer seems to be, mainly by Obama wagging a finger or talking about red lines he has no intention of really dealing with. He's like the parent who tells the kids "if you do that one more time, you're gonna get it." And the kids know he's all talk and no action. Obama like an ineffective parent, is a non-leader.
Obama rescinded Putin’s invitation to the Hague summit. He threatened Russia with more sanctions (if, that is, Putin crosses the next red line). On Thursday, the UN General Assembly is expected to pass a non-binding resolution that declares the Russian annexation of Crimea null and void.
But mostly, Obama OPINES that Putin is yesterday’s man living in today’s world.
But Putin is who he is, and he’s playing his weak hand quite well, thank you very much. He just annexed Crimea without firing a shot, and he’s yet to feel any downside for it (other than not getting a tablet to play at The Hague, that is).
And while Putin maximizes Russia’s assets (or, rather, those of his oligarch cronies), our president models, simulates and theorizes.
As our economy recovers, albeit too slowly, Obama’s poll numbers are in the low 40s. As Russia’s economy sinks, Putin’s popularity soars at home — polls up to the 80s.
Maybe Putin’s 21st century model isn’t all that new — but since Obama, late to the game, has yet to respond adequately, Russia’s weak hand is beating America’s strong one.
But oh that Bammy is SO "FLEXIBLE," as he promised the Russians for, "AFTER THE ELECTION"
If you're going to copy and paste an entire article you should at least say where it came from. In this case it came from an opinion piece published by the New York Post, another one of Rupert Murdoch's right wing propaganda outlets.
