Listen illiterate dupe-
I said "CHOICE"...as in NO, there was NO tax increase.
Meaning..some CHOOSE to purchase the part D extra coverage, while some do Not (and pay out of pocket then).
UNlike the UNConstitutional commie-MORE robbinghoodieTic TAX and FINE of the american communist act.
And I KNOW the percentages of the TAXES for BOTH Medicare AND Medicaide-being Already PAID every paycheck off of the WORKING class sector backs.
So--GIVE US OUR CREDIT for the TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY (drained dry) Payments-irresponsible, GREEDY big brotha grubber.
DUHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHmy.
You act as though the premiums of Part D fund the bill. They do not.

74% of the funding forPart D comes from the General fund ( I.e. not funded at all & piles onto the debt.

Choose it or not, you are paying for it.

Even by GOP standards, this was a rather extraordinary moment. A member of the Senate Republican leadership – indeed, the chair of the Senate Republican Policy Committee – went on national television to accuse the White House of perpetrating a fraud based on nothing but his own hopes.

It’s hard to overstate how difficult it is to take Barrasso’s complaints seriously. For one thing, note the extent to which the far-right senator wants to have it both ways. When enrollment totals were low, Barrasso said the figures were very important. When enrollment totals surged, Barrasso said the figures don’t mean anything. At least some form of intellectual consistency would be a welcome change of pace, but it’s apparently in short supply.

For another, there’s literally no evidence to suggest the enrollment totals are illegitimate or have been “cooked” for political purposes. For a Senate leader to make such a reckless accusation out of frustration – a U.S. senator is apparently annoyed by American consumers gaining access to affordable medical care – is deeply irresponsible.

To be sure, there are reasons to keep the champagne on ice. The political world is understandably invested in knowing just how many folks sign up for coverage, but we don’t yet know how many of these new consumers will pay their premiums and keep their coverage. Also, as Kaiser’s Drew Altman explained last week, watching the enrollment thresholds shouldn’t obscure related questions about cost, quality, and duration, the answers to which will come in time.

My advice was to you. You seem like a gun nut that would piss himself firing your gun erratically. You pull your gun and fire, killing an innocent kid, and you open yourself to a whole other world of problems. But hey you just missed killing the bad guy. Kudos.
Dumbass, I could field strip an M-1 Garand at 12 years old. Hit an innocent kid? What do you think it was, a drive by?

The handful of reasonably intelligent democrats know this is just more contrived crap by the regime.

No different than the unemployment number's miraculous recovery just prior to the '12 election.

Or how many of the over 5 million who had insurance but whose policies were cancelled signed up on the exchanges. They can't count those who were already insured twice.
All I know is this administration should make all of us feel a little stupid. They tell us lies and then expect us to believe everything they say just because they say it without any data or proof that what they say is true.

you folks who've lost the right wing narrative on the ACA are a real hoot. you need to just face the fact that it worked and that it's not ever going away.
funny thing is...if it had been a republican who phased it in you'd be all for it. but when was the last time a major republican program actually worked? so, it had to be a democrat who got the job done.
Because you say so?

How Is Medicare Financed?
Medicare is funded primarily from three sources: general revenues (40%), payroll tax contributions (38%), and beneficiary premiums (13%)(Figure 3):
Figure 3. Estimated Sources of Medicare Revenue, 2012
Figure 3. Estimated Sources of Medicare Revenue, 2012
Part A is financed primarily through a 2.9% tax on earnings paid by employers and employees (1.45% each)(accounting for 86% of Part A revenue). For higher-income taxpayers (more than $200,000/individual and $250,000/couple), the payroll tax on earnings increases by 0.9 percentage points, from 1.45% to 2.35%, in 2013.
Part B is financed through general revenues (72%), beneficiary premiums (25%), and interest and other sources (3%). Beneficiaries with annual incomes over $85,000/individual or $170,000/couple pay a higher, income-related Part B premium reflecting a larger share of total Part B spending, ranging from 35% to 80%; the ACA froze the income thresholds through 2019, which is expected to increase the share of beneficiaries paying the higher Part B premium.
Part D is financed through general revenues (74%), beneficiary premiums (13%), and state payments for dual eligibles (13%). Similar to Part B, enrollees with higher incomes pay a larger share of the cost of Part D coverage.
i.e. 74% of part D was never funded but just taken from the general fund.

Kerry runs to Israel again--for the 12th time: "The U.S. is trying to force Israel to release Arab terrorist murderers including Israeli Arab terrorists from its prisons in order to maintain a peace process whose phoniness is exposed by the very request.
Let's hope Kerry allows the terrorists to go to Santa Barbara, California. Joan never met a terrorist she didn't like: so I suggest she sponsors a few.
It's more like israel is trying to force the United States to release convicted spy Jonathan Pollard in return for any israeli concessions in the peace talks with the Palestinians. I'm sure you'll make room for him in your home.

"If the Netanyahu government could win Pollards release, which many Israeli leaders have failed to do over the years, it could insulate him from political blow back if the prisoners are released and the Palestinian talks fall through." Anyone who believes israel won't renege on their promises the minute Pollard is released is living in a fantasy world.
