<quoted text> Senate Republican Policy Committee
Scathing CBO Scorecard on Obamacare, Economy
Fewer People in Jobs, Higher Debt
February 11, 2014
Last week the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office released its 2014 Budget and Economic Outlook. From Obamacare to the unrestrained national debt, this report serves as a warning of the damage the President’s policies are doing to our country.
CBO Confirms Obamacare Discourages Work
Before the President signed his health care bill into law, Democrats claimed the proposal would create jobs. Then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi infamously declared:“So this bill is not only about the health security of America, it’s about jobs. In its life it will create four million jobs – 400,000 jobs almost immediately.”
In this latest report, CBO confirmed that Obamacare’s flawed policy disincentives are expected to drive 2.5 million people out of the workforce by 2024. That is nearly triple the impact CBO had estimated in 2010. Democrats’ health care law forces Americans to make a perverse choice between whether they want to work more, earn higher wages, but potentially lose generous government subsidies; or work less, earn lower salaries, and retain government benefits.
While Obamacare’s impact on the labor force garnered significant news attention, the CBO report contains more bad news:
1 percent: The amount CBO predicts the health care law will reduce aggregate labor compensation – hitting lower wage workers hardest.
1.5 million: The number of people, of the roughly five million whose health insurance plans have been cancelled in the individual and small group markets, who are expected to renew their non-Obamacare compliant policies in 2014.
7 million: The number of people who will lose their employer-sponsored health insurance by 2024.
13 million: The number of people who will be locked into a broken and failing Medicaid program by 2024.
31 million: The number of people who will remain uninsured in 2024. CBO projects Obamacare will not reduce the number of uninsured below 30 million people over the next decade.
$52 billion: The total amount, over 10 years, that Obamacare taxes the uninsured, through the individual mandate tax.
$151 billion: The total, over 10 years, that Obamacare taxes employers that do not offer health insurance to their workers, through the employer mandate tax.
Return of Trillion Dollar Deficits
CBO projects that deficits will decrease in 2014 (to $514 billion) and 2015 (to $478 billion)– still larger deficits than any previous Administration – before increasing every year after 2015. The report estimates that deficits in 2022, 2023, and 2024 will all be greater than $1 trillion. In comparison, last year’s estimate did not expect any deficits over $1 trillion.
Deficits Over $1 Trillion Again
Deficits Over $1 Trillion Again
By the end of his second term, President Obama will have seen the national debt increase by about $8.5 trillion. It will be nearly $27.2 trillion by 2024. Publicly held debt as a percentage of GDP at its lowest point over the next 10 years – 72.3 percent in 2017 – is still higher than any other year since 1950.
.....us the 2014 estimated level -- including a 78 percent increase in Social Security outlays; an 80 percent increase in Medicare; and a 93 percent increase in Medicaid.
The biggest increase in spending is net interest – the cost of servicing our debt. CBO assumes that the interest rate on treasuries will rise eventually to near the historical average. Interest spending is estimated to go up by 278 percent over the next decade -- from $233 billion in 2014 to $880 billion in 2024. By 2021, interest costs will exceed the entire national defense budget

It's well past the time to stop worrying about what Bush did (or didn't do) and start worrying about what the current Jackass-in-Chief is doing.
Ok the current Chief is still sorting out the messes left behind by the last Jackass in chief.

<quoted text>Medicare Part D leverages the power of market competition to deliver prescription drug coverage to seniors. Private insurance plans compete with one another for seniors’ business, offering different premiums, deductibles, and levels of drug coverage. Seniors can pick the plan that best suits their needs and budget, and the feds subsidize their premiums.
Today, the more than 27 million seniors enrolled in Part D can choose from about a thousand plans nationwide. Nearly 11 million people covered by Part D did not previously have prescription drug coverage. Ninety percent are satisfied with the program, according to KRC Research.
The competitive forces built into Part D have kept costs down. At an average of just $38 a month, premiums are 27 percent below where the government expected them to be. They’ve been essentially flat since 2009, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.
Low premium costs, in turn, mean less taxpayer money for subsidies. In fact, Part D costs are 40 percent below where the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) initially predicted. Over the past six years, the CBO has lowered its long-term cost projections for Part D by hundreds of billions of dollars.
Try to name one other federal program that can boast such results. Certainly not the rest of Medicare. At the dawn of the program in 1965, Medicare’s Part A hospital insurance program was projected to cost just $9 billion by 1990. The actual cost was more than seven times that —$67 billion.
Despite Part D’s success at increasing prescription drug coverage at lower-than-expected cost, President Obama and his allies want to fundamentally change the nature of the program.
From an article in Forbes.
IT WAS NEVER FULLY FINDED.

What part of that don't you get?

It just proves you are so full of sh*t when you come here & try to preach smaller government & lowering the debt.

Sure Galt, as if there is any proof in this world that would change your mind. Kinda like the Republicans on Benghazi, nothing would change their mind because it's not the truth that they are looking for.
