But what will we do when the government runs out of everyone else's money?.
ODD that Dfiant keeps repeating same old dribble.
LOL there are those that can not fathom how this CBO report illuminates the success of Obama. Right Wing cries too fast, too fast, too fast, slooooow down..
“It Is All About The Economy Stupid”{Trivia;} who had that on his presidential desk?
Following inspired by the CBO report.
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. Republicans

………….. A Tale of two sovereignties; #1
It all has to do with your Health Care. Gov. John W. Hickenlooper {D}of Colorado has taken the initiative to embrace Obamacare. Splashing advertisements for their constituents. Air waves as well as mechanical printing agency advertisements. Educating their populace to how to shop for the various plans. Identifying the individual plan for one’s self is made easy. In addition there will be 400 worker aids to help guide those that require assistance.
“There’s politics everywhere these days,” Mr. Hickenlooper said in an interview,“but for the most part, we’ve really been focused on how to do this right, and trying to make sure that people have affordable health care.”
“Connect for Health will receive $180 million to grub stake this new adventure from the Fed’s… October first they will be up and running to begin accepting applications. Focus will be for a WEB portal to aid those constituents that do not receive health coverage through their employment.{ www.connectforhealthco.com ,} for those interested to visit the Colorado’s Health WEB page.
WEB page coupled with educational publicity, will help to facilitate the transactions required to add 760,000 of the uninsured Coloradans to the insured….
..Establishing the foundations for a knowledgeable viable marketplace has been designated to people like Ms. Jessica Dunbar. Market manager at Connect for Health. Getting the communication and education to all constituents’ is her priority. In her words “We’re trying to connect people to a healthier way of life through secure health insurance coverage,”
Positive action produced positive results. Doretta Tootle, 41, was appreciating the clearing up much of her confusion on the laws Health Care which Ms. Jessica Dunbar was able to clarify it for her. Now she is anxious to get the word out to many people that she knows of, in need of Health Insurance. Doretta stated “I totally understand now,” she said,“almost to the point where I want to go put this on Facebook and let everyone know,‘Hey, there’s something coming out.’”
.. Even State officials caught the bug to get the word out. Vincent Plymill spokesman for the Division of Insurance suggest promotional events for children and adults. Mr. Hickenlooper is all for it and is “nervous as a cat” trying to get the marketplace a success. Determination he exemplifies when he says “We’ll do whatever it takes,” he said.“I’ll ride around the state on a bicycle if I have to”!

…….Sovereignty # 2 The Misery Of Missouri
Missouri’s sovereignty and their constituents are in the dark with, no Health Care Marketplace to aid their constituents. Obamacare has been silenced with no presence nor any suggesting of its existence. Its more of a covert action by their sovereignty’s desires. Refusing to open insurance exchanges and forbidding all local and state officials to cooperate with the Federal exchange. Refuses to expand Medicaid and obstructing any who would educate their constituents on Obamacare. They want the Feds to do it all.
850,000 citizens of Missouri to remain in misery for as long as possible. Until the Feds can get in there and educate the populace on how to reduce the cost of Health Care to themselves as well as to all the citizens of Missouri. Gov. Jay Nixon has his hands tied by a 2/3 majority republicans seating in both legislative houses. His efforts to for any progression on Health Care issues are falling on deaf ears…..
Now the Feds will dust off their carpet bags to cater the education and build the infrastructure for Obamacare. Apparently such sovereignties lack the expertise. No doubt their Obamacare will cost them more. They do have to pay the catering service. Conservative Democrats’ will hand them the bill for collection.

Here we have it. Two distinct tactics to Obamacare. Will be interesting to observe their developments. Here in Florida we have a similar force of republican obstruction. We will be able to observe it here just as well. Does Obamacare reduce the cost of Health Care or does the Austerity system of the republicans have a more favorable result to the insured and non insured?
Many other sovereignties across the world have demonstrated their successful reduction in Health Cost to all of their populace. Debunking the measures of austerity from their right wing ideologues was one of their first steps to.
USA presently has a cost of 4 times to 10 times greater than their competing sovereignties have to offer. International Free Trade Markets does and will continue to do so, illuminate the winners of this Health Care issue.

I can honestly say that just because he won, he is not fit to lead our country. Scandals phony? Bengazi phony? IRS scandal? Fast and furious? Obama will go down as the worst , he doesnt even feel like an American President should. I just dont feel it. He says that lately " Washington" has dropped the ball. Thought obama was washington...hello! He never , ever admits he is wrong, racist, he should have never injected himself into the whole travon, zimmerman fiasco. He and his cronies never mentioned the shit hole of chicago they left behind, where blacks kill themselves by the hundreds every month. Weak! Weak!.
You can dislike Obama all you want but the facts as usual never support your hate.

Congress has the authority to engage military action. Remember when the republitards got their panties all bunched up when Obama used the military without their approval.....flip flop time....now you are crying because what...Obama DID NOT use military force without Congress.

When you republitards find a position you might want to stick with it.

Dislike and hate are two different things. While I do dislike Obama, I HATE TERRORIST, Muslim or any kind for that matter. I can settle for the fact that Obama will be out of office in three years, I can wait for that. Terrorist on the other hand need to be sought out and destroyed right now today. Drone strike, or a raid by Navy Seals it makes no difference. Search and destroy NOW!

Contrary to atypical right wing mindset I'm fairly confident that the left hates terrorists just as much. However where we differ is like it or not we are a nation of laws. If we allow ourselves to break our own laws and moral codes to attack the terrorists we are just creating the next wave of terrorists.

The Chasm Widens; 2014 cometh..
Governors across the nation voice their distaste for the Tea Party.
Republican Governors oppose the “Ideologues” of their party. Giving them stern warning not to pursue a shutdown of the government as it has been their custom to do so. Trying to block Obamacare by disrupting the financing of the Federal budget will backfire on them.
“I have made the case that Obamacare is not good for the economy, but I have some real concerns about potentially doing something that would have a negative impact on the economy just for the short term — I think there are other ways to pursue this,” said Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin !
Gov. Jack Dalrymple of North Dakota said “I’ve never felt that shutting down government function is a wise thing to do politically because I think, whoever is involved in it, it’s the Congress, regardless of what party they’re affiliated with, that will be blamed by the public,” And so, to me, I don’t see what it accomplishes.”
Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona agrees as do most all the republican governors.
Gov. Phil Bryant of Mississippi said “Many of the members of this party do not want to fund Obamacare, but what we have to do as governors who work with our legislators is realize the reality of being able to get something passed,”!
Senators Rand Paul {R }of Kentucky and Ted Cruz {R} of Texas two of the Tea Party disagree. Senator Tom Coburn {R} of Oklahoma believes the stop government ideology is doomed and will doom republicans come 2014.
Gov. Terry E. Branstad of Iowa, a Republican defines the art of negotiations and compromise is required and end all this callow bitter fighting of our extremist representatives.
New chairwoman of the National Governors Association, Ms. Fallen said “They need to buckle down, work hard, find consensus on things and certainly find ways of reducing our deficit,” said Ms. Fallin, who rejected the Medicaid expansion in Oklahoma and declined to set up a state health insurance marketplace.
Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, the head of the Republican Governors Association said “We absolutely should use whatever opportunity and tactic we can to repeal and replace Obamacare,” said Mr. Jindal, deeming the prospect of a shutdown nothing more than “a false threat” and “scare tactics” from Mr. Obama’s administration.
LOL if that is not an excellent example of how the right wing PROJECTS their erroneous ideologues’ onto their opponent. Scare tactics! False threats! Its Obama’s fault! Callow does not do justice in describing Bobby’s abilities for originality and leadership.
Gov. Jack Markell of Delaware {D} said “People are getting very tired of politicians who appear to only want to shut things down and not build things up, Far be it from me to give them advice, but it can’t be helpful to them.”
Republicans just wanted to let their constants know that they no longer favor the fragrance and or taste of Tea as it is being served by their bitter ideologues’. Will the Tea Party sober up enough to comprehend the warning of the growing chasm that will be swallowing them up?
Republicans are just now realizing that there constituents are deeply in favor of Obamacare and now they seek how to back pedal without anybody noticing. LOL!
