Mjjcap has not read the CBO report no doubt. After all Fox forbade their herd to seek intelligence.
Consider Obama knows how to get the deficit down, Where as republicans have no idea on how to do that. Give Obama room to invest and get the deficit going down faster than it already is. Republicans cry to fast, to fat slooooow down… I’ll go with Obama on this one. After all who created the debt in the first place. Republicans 1929 Great Depression and their 2008 Great Recession….
The Congressional Budget Office said the 2013 fiscal deficit would fall to about $642 billion, or 4 percent of G.D.P., about $200 billion less than it estimated just three months ago.
WASHINGTON — Since the recession ended four years ago, the federal budget deficit has topped $1 trillion every year. But now the government’s annual deficit is shrinking far faster than anyone in Washington expected, and perhaps even faster than many economists think is advisable for the health of the economy.
The agency forecast that the deficit, which topped 10 percent of gross domestic product in 2009, could shrink to as little as 2.1 percent of gross domestic product by 2015 — a level that most analysts say would be easily sustainable over the long run — before beginning to climb gradually through the rest of the decade.
"Revenues have been strong as the economy has outperformed a bit," said Joel Prakken, a founder of Macroeconomic Advisers, a forecasting firm based in St. Louis.
Over all, the figures demonstrate how the economic recovery has begun to refill the government’s coffers. At the same time, Washington, despite its republican political paralysis.
Republicans say perhaps too successful. Given that the economy continues to perform well below its potential and that unemployment has so far failed to fall below 7.5 percent, many economists are cautioning that the deficit is coming down too fast, too soon.
“It’s good news for the budget deficit and bad news for the jobs deficit,” said Jared Bernstein of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.{R}
“I’m more worried about the latter.” OOOHHH scary..
Now Obama is showing his democratic colors of success in financials. With the government running a hefty $113 billion surplus in the tax payment month of April, according to the Treasury, analysts now do not expect the country to run out of room under its debt ceiling.
The $200 billion reduction to the estimated deficit comes not from the $85 billion in mandatory cuts known as sequestration, nor from the package of tax increases that Congress passed this winter to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. The office had already incorporated those policy changes in its February forecast.
Republicans want Congress to agree for this year to serving as a partial brake on the recovery, cutting government jobs and preventing growth from accelerating to a more robust pace, many economists have warned. The International Monetary Fund has called the country’s pace of deficit reduction “overly strong,” arguing that Washington should delay some of its budget cuts while adopting a longer-term strategy to hold down future deficits.{R} Typical, small minds for small growth..
CBO is revising its estimates for the current year, the budget office also cut its projections of the 10-year cumulative deficit by $618 billion. Those longer-term adjustments are mostly a result of smaller projected outlays for the entitlement programs of Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare, as well as smaller interest payments on the debt. The C.B.O. has quietly erased hundreds of billions of dollars in projected government health spending over the last few years.
It did so again on Tuesday. In February, the budget office projected that the United States would spend about $8.1 trillion on Medicare and $4.4 trillion on Medicaid over the next 10 fiscal years. It now projects it will spend $7.9 trillion on Medicare and $4.3 trillion on Medicaid.

“I’m concerned about the fact there seems to be a war on the poor,” he said, sitting at the head of a burnished table as members of his cabinet lingered after a meeting.“That if you’re poor, somehow you’re shiftless and lazy.”
“You know what?” he said.“The very people who complain ought to ask their grandparents if they worked at the W.P.A.”
So speaketh the Apostle Gov. John R. Kasich of Ohio.
John then goes on to preach on the virtues of Medicaid expansion and Obamacare. Increases support to the Mentally Handicap literally giving a helping hand to his brother.
Fragrances of the 2014 election drifts by.
Once a leader in rebel rousing with Newt Gingrich for shutting down the government and now a reformed Christian for the empathy of his constituents. Has he not defied the preaching’s of the “Ideoloques”! Crying out in the wilderness for stronger safety nets. Was he not the one who supported the Democratic Cleveland mayor Frank Jackson to raise taxes to repair their infrastructure to the schools?
Have we not forgiven him for his transgressions against the Unions so long ago in 2011? Are we going to hold him responsible for his cutting revenue to local governments? Is his chauvinistic attack on our womenfolk to go unnoticed? Are Ohioans to forgive his hypocrisy by supporting polices for the past 3 years to cut $ 6,000.00 in taxes to the 1 % all the while increasing taxes on the impoverished?
Judgment day of 2014 approaches. Our Apostle Kasich repents his past failures. Does he not have the Christian empathy for a simple lady employed in this doughnut shop when he criticizes the widespread propaganda of his fellow republicans, when they accuse this fine lady, if she requires any social programs to get her children fed, of being of “A Culture Of Dependency” What is she to do when she can not afford simple primary care insurance for herself or her children due to the very low wages bestowed upon her by the Austerity polices of the vile republicans greed for their 1%. See how he has repented.
Does he not accept the $2.5 Billion federal funds for Medicaid for his 250,000 constituents that are in the same predicament as the doughnut lady? Was it not the pleading of the state hospitals and Ohio businesses and now in deep remorse agrees with their pleading on expanding Medicaid.
And yet his dark hypocoristic side remains. How are his believers to obtain this miracle insurance promised? Refusing to open the doors to admit applications for it?
Crying out it is poison and will cripple you. You will not be able to work and it will destroy our wealth…..
Bah Humbug.. Let us reduce the surplus populace and be done with them. That is how we balance the budget. Serenity for all will follow for all those that remain. So speaketh an Apostle of the republican reformed committee for republican elections.
LOL how the weak shall follow once again to their ignorance. LOL

Not only are technical problems effecting the roll out of Obamacare, whether it be as a faulty soft ware issue or an induced error from an external source is yet to be determined. In the end it will be investigated for years to come no doubt.
Another feature will be the present infrastructures of Insurance companies that seek to hold their monopoly on various sectors of our nations populace. That as well will be addressed and rectified.
Where there is competition amongst 4 or more insurance companies in a sector produces lower premium cost as those such as in rural areas have 2 or less cost is higher. Sharp difference which exposes the erroneous previous insurance infrastructure that promoted continuous higher cost of Health Care with a national average of 7 % per year to premiums and accelerating. Once this abnormality is dealt with estimates for premium increases will average approximately 3.3% per year. In ratio with the rate of living income index
Presently many of the poor are being offered the highest-priced plans in the 34 states. Of the 2,500 counties, 58% have only one or two insurance companies. Driving a higher cost to insurance. Their obstructions as well as some hospitals to have competition brought in , will delay the full benefits of Obamacare to be realized by those citizens for some time to come.
Example; Wyoming with only two insurers are significantly higher than their neighbor Montana with three insurers. Even across county lines differences can be substantial. Monroe County Fl. with two insurers, suffer greater cost compared to their neighbor Miami-Dade County, with seven companies in competition.
Rural Baker County Ga. With one insurer a 50 year old would pay on silver plan $644.05 where as his counterpart in Atlanta Ga. Pays $320.06.
Most of these low competition one insurer states are in the southern belt of our USA. In the North, Main, West Virginia, North Carolina, Alaska and N.H.
“The consumer wants some level of choice,” said Alexander K. Feldvebel, the deputy insurance commissioner for New Hampshire, where one carrier, Anthem Blue Cross, owned by WellPoint, now offers plans.“You don’t have that when you have a single carrier offering all the products.”
Well people have to run now, hope this helps you and your associates in comprehending what is effecting Health Cost.
LOL may Texas have a god to pray to. Dictating governor will stifle any info on Obamacare for it illuminates the republican ignorance they have been shoving down the throats of their women folks and their constituents. Further slip sliding the lone star state into the bowels of despair and failure.

Hyped up propaganda of the Foxy shepherd, for his naïveté herd, is not acceptable to the enlighten.
On the front lines of Obamacare we can examine the benefits of its expansion. Far from full steam ahead and yet the consequences to the republicans is deactivating their strengths of unity.
Observe the republican Tea stronghold of Kentucky. Here under the intelligent leadership of their democratic governor, Steven L. Beshear already over 34,000 have applied for Obamacare with 11,000 secured knowing they can now have Health Care Insurance that they can AFFORD that the fear mongering tactics of the republicans are nothing more than dust in the wind. This since Oct. First ! Now imagine they still have until March 31st to sign up!
Looks like the voters are not as red as their false republican leaders want us to believe. Governor Beshear is an example of a strong fortified leader of integrity. Unlike his republican associates such as Rand Paul or Mitch McConnell to name a couple. Two who have sought to divide and destroy this nation unless we pay their ransom.
Here is how Governor Beshear sums it up as a true leader of his constituents;
.“You don’t have to like the president; you don’t have to like me. Because this isn’t about him, and it’s not about me. It’s about you, your family and your children. So do yourself a favor. Find what you can get for yourself. You’re going to like what you find” Notice the difference? Republicans are all about ME, ME, ME, Give Me, Give Me, blah, blah, blah.
Kentucky is the proud Southern state to say they are the FIRST to expand Medicaid to their constituents. The rest of the southern states are as usual in their quagmire of ill leadership. Lacking intelligence and integrity. Betting that they can keep their constituents ignorant of Obamacare long enough to get their vote one more time before they are exposed for the frauds that they are.
Jessie Benton, campaign manager for Mitch McConnell, is an excellent example of this hyped up fear mongering tactics of the RED’s. Observe his callow take on the wave of people that are not buying his fear mongering ways as he takes it a step up when he says; “Kentuckians are suspicious and deeply concerned about Obamacare, Any Democrat running in Kentucky in 2014 is going to be in a box: stand against your base, or endorse a policy that’s very unpopular and not working well.”
LOL when he knows there is that hurdle of the last showdown that the republicans failed at with a disapproval ratings by 74% of the nation holding them directly responsible for juvenile leadership with damaging consequences to our nation. Last estimated cost of damage is another $24 Billion increase to the national debt. AND they are so worried about the debt. Yeah Sure !
“To me this was a moral decision,” he said.“We’ve got 640,000 Kentuckians who don’t have access to any kind of affordable health care. The last ranking I saw, we’re 44th out of 50 in health status. You take any chronic disease or condition — heart disease, cancer, smoking, obesity, you name it — and we’re either the worst or close to the worst.” Here is a leader that is truly concerned for the failing state of affaires that the RED’s have infested his state with.
A State Commissioned Study on Governor Beshear expanded Medicaid financial strategy will reap $15.6 Billion and ad over 17,000 new jobs.
Of course republicans will demonize it, for after all, they are for the increasing wealth to their 1% lords and masters.
Governor foresees what lays in store for the weak democrats and republicans; “Most of these critics are going to end up with egg on their face,” the governor predicted.“People are finding that I can get health insurance for the first time in my life that I can afford. They’re going to look back at these folks after all the dust settles and say,‘You misled us.’”
