That's what's happening. Republicans should keep drumming that drum until it sinks in and until it hits home. Otherwise, we're going to be taken off-guard and not see it coming.

Dave, Obamacare only pays for two years of the expanded Medicaid then it becomes state funded.
You have no clue what the law says and what it costs.
Now I have to agree with the other posters. You are dumber than dirt.

"CBO estimates show that the federal government will bear nearly 93 percent of the costs of the Medicaid expansion over its first nine years (2014-2022). The federal government will pick up 100 percent of the cost of covering people made newly eligible for Medicaid for the first three years (2014-2016) and no less than 90 percent on a permanent basis."

As much as I hate to take Whatever's side in anything, I had to go back and check her post to see why she was so insistent that she was right when it appeared to all of us she was clearly wrong. We stand corrected. The problem is...she used "their" twice in that sentence.
"When I came here this evening their (sic) was a motley lot of progressive bitter and angry feasting on their own guts."
She was correcting the first "their", not the second one which is the one to which everyone was referring.
It was a idiotic "got cha" argument by dumb Dave aka Leo-really wasn't worth your time to sit the record straight. But, yes you are correct

The prophecies were pretty specific and have either come to pass or are now in the process or are still yet to come.
But most of them have already happened.
You might be surprised. Maybe not. Daniel did prophesy that the wicked will not understand...not that I'm saying you're wicked or anything ...just telling you what he said.
sure, cultie, sure..which prophecies have come true now?

Dem lawmaker says Vermont’s single-payer health care plan has already flatlined

In 2011, while the rest of America argued the merits of the president's Affordable Care Act, Vermont jumped the progressive curve, promising to launch the nation's first health single-payer system, in which state government pays providers to care for all residents.

Now, even Democrats say that plan, called Green Mountain Care, isn't ready for its proposed 2017 rollout, and Rep. Jim Condon told Vermont Watchdog it's time for Gov. Peter Shumlin to shelve the ambitious plan immediately.

"The deadlines for proposing financing have been missed two years in a row now, so to me that's very disappointing. It's becoming clearer and clearer that there is no financing plan," Condon told Vermont Watchdog.

As Vermont Watchdog reported, an independent report by the Washington, D.C.-based consulting firm Avalere Health concluded that the costs of Green Mountain Care would require Vermont to raise tax revenue roughly equal to the state's tax collections from all sources today.

Condon, a Democrat from Colchester, said he thinks a single-payer system in Vermont would "cost more" than a couple of previous estimates. Those estimates pegged the cost for single-payer at anywhere from $1.6 billion to $2.2 billion annually.

"It's a government program [so] I think it's going to cost more than that. Given that, I think it would be in the best interest of Vermonters to redirect our energies away from single-payer health care to trying to improve the system we're in now," Condon added.

Condon was one of three "Blue Dog Democrats" to vote against Act 48, the legislation establishing the transition to a single-payer health care system. According to Act 48, Green Mountain Care cannot have any negative implications for Vermont's economy. But Condon said he's not aware of any other way to pay for it outside of federal funding or raising taxes. And for that reason, Condon said he's urging Gov. Shumlin not to seek a waiver from Obamacare, which the state must obtain from the federal government in order for single-payer to be implemented.

Notice it says: As Vermont Watchdog reported, an independent report by the Washington, D.C.-based consulting firm Avalere Health concluded that the costs of Green Mountain Care would require Vermont to raise tax revenue roughly equal to the state's tax collections from all sources today.

Well, that's what Harry Reid said in a PBS interview last year...that ObamaCare was just the first step towards single-payer. Didn't you read about it?

You might have to go directly to the source - PBS. You won't find it on your usual talking points networks.

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

Just watch the movie. It's called "The Daniel Project". You can get it on Netflix.

It will explain it much better than I could on a forum like this.

Unless they decide not to pay the bill. We are broke you know. There is nothing to stop them from cutting funding.

Oh successful like the example of the guy who owned a $5 million dollar home being told by Obamacarebots that his only option was getting on Medicaid?

hahahahaha

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."

http://economix.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/11/19/...

Meicare part D - UNFUNDED. ADDS TO THE DEFICIT.

This from the exact same people running in circles screaming " OMG OMG the debt the debt"

Right whiners stupidity at its best.
