Supplying those under the poverty level government-paid health care will actually save everybody money. It'll insure that medical bills are (finally) paid off, hospitals will start operating in the black and it'll be a much more fluid system, IMHO.
It would only work (IMO) if insurance paid 100 percent of the medical bill. I know of no insurance that pays 100 percent. Thus, John Q. Taxpayer will be stuck paying premiums, and the tab that insurance doesn't pay.

Since when is using official statistics from the Congressional Budget Office, which is a non-partisan federal agency, nothing more than “insight[ing]”[sic] panic? Really, that’s your rebuttal? Are they lying? Do you know better than they? Did they teach you all about the federal budget in your I’m sure very rigorous weekend class to become a real estate agent, such that you know more than they know, lol? You obviously can’t rebut what I have said. So you just say I’m “insight[ing]”[sic] panic.
Those of us without their head in the clouds would call it using official government statistics and facts.
What about this … this is a clip of Geithner from CSPAN using Obama’s own numbers and it unequivocally shows starting in 2021 we are f’d big time:
http://www.youtube.com/watch...
You’d earn more credibility I think with the group if you acknowledged that we have serious debt problems and need to do something about them instead of just shrugging them off as if what I am saying has no merit. I can even get on board with folks saying that right now, we need to hold off on drastic spending cuts because of the state of the economy, but need to get on them very soon. I can’t get on board with someone such as you pretending there is no problem and pretending I’m just making stuff up....EDITED FOR LENGTH
You okay, dude? I've read some of your priors and you didn't seem to be quite this bummed before and I'd also not seen a lot of personal attacks from you on posters with different POVs on other issues.

What's changed, bud? You voted for Obama and he hasn't managed to contain the overspending, the inefficiency, the ineffectiveness and expansion that's been baked into the U. S. budget since Reagan.

So where have you been the last 40+ years? I applaud your recent awakening / realization that our government and representatives are not necessarily trying much to represent any of us. Shame on them!

I've also noticed you seem unaware of the impact that the decisions to carry 2 wars off-book, while passing Medicare Part D and cutting everyone's taxes, while pandering to the DOD has had on our deficit.

I've always thought it ironic that the guy who used the term "fuzzy math", made the intellectually and morally dishonest decision to use what can only be called "fuzzy math" by carrying 2 wars off-book.

How could we expect a good result after using questionable accounting practices and our refusal, for the first time in our history, to not raise taxes at a time of war, as a "shared sacrifice" for all of us?

The ensuing backlash, had President McCain immediately bailed on Iraq and Afghanistan and cancelled Part D would have been interesting to observe. Do you actually think he would would have done that? LOL

If you believe President Romney would have made these bold political moves, you have a much higher opinion of him than I do. Is he a bad guy? No, but he doesn't strike me as being a political free-thinker.

I'm always entertained by folks who must blame the POTUS for all the dysfunction, all the out-of-control spending and all the current deficits, without blaming the prior POTUS and prior representatives.

By all appearances, you seem to be a guy with buyer's remorse (since, after all, you voted for Obama at least once) and seem to now be bordering on clinical depression. There's help for that out there!

The answer to the thread topic is everybody's to blame! The DEMS, REPs, INDIEs, the POTUS and every prior POTUS. Am I comfortable with the political system? NO! Do I just blame BO? Are you kidding me?

<quoted text> What constitutes poor, there are the working poor.
Like I said I talk to a guy from England who said they have the same thing and it works well for them...
England has socialized medicine. It's completely different. A big problem with socialized medicine is long waits for specialists and lower quality of care. It’s well known:

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/08/12/opinion/12s...

So, while many folks argue for a single payer system, where the government pays all the costs, which would be socialized medicine, it would certainly reduce costs of healthcare, but overall quality of care would go down. WE have the highest quality of care for those who have insurance and we have higher survival rates for many diseases, but we pay A LOT for a high quality of care

The big draw back to our system is that not all adults (most kids are covered by welfare programs, however) have insurance, and many folks feel it is unjust. If we wanted to make caring for them a priority there are two ways we could address this. We could have a single payer system, where everyone is covered, but then everyone who already has insurance would receive a lower standard of care, which is a known problem with socialized medicine. Sorry, if my wife has cancer, I don’t want her to wait to see a specialist just so someone can get free healthcare. Why should the quality of the healthcare that I currently work for and earn for me and my family go down just so that someone who doesn’t earn and work for theirs can have better quality healthcare? Even leaving to one side who’s paying for it,(not them) is their life worth more than mine? I don’t think so.

So many folks who currently have insurance do not want a single payer system, even though it would reduce costs and provide greater access. I am one of these folks for the reasons I mentioned above.

So what Obamacare does instead is it simply keeps the current system in place, which is very costly, and simply has other people pay for these folks to have insurance. If you have a flex spending account, like me, and would have put more than 2.5k into it this year, you essentially had a tax increase to pay for other people to get medical insurance. That hits a lot of middle class folks. There were also some taxes on the wealthy, which I think they can afford, but there is also a 3.9 percent tax on medical devices, which will simply be passed off onto everyone and thus make the cost of healthcare more expensive for everyone. On top of that, there were huge premium increases for a lot of folks, simply due to the law.

So, that’s what has happened. Regardless of how folks feel about it, it’s kinda silly to call that act the “Affordable Care Act,”(as I have said it really should be called the “having other people pay for other people’s insurance act”) given that it does almost nothing to make healthcare more affordable, except for the folks who are getting healthcare welfare under it. For everyone else, we will be paying more … much more as time goes on. And when Amnesty for illegals eventually happens, there are going to be a lot more folks getting free healthcare because of it and costs are going to go through the roof.

The thing we have to consider is that we already promise the elderly and the disabled healthcare and SS. Those programs are not on a sustainable course. As it stands now, medicare will be completely exhausted by 2024, I believe. To the extent we provide Obamacare welfare to working age adults (I have no problem providing Medicaid to children … there is almost nothing I won’t do for children in need), we will have to make even bigger cuts to SS and Medicare. In a lot of ways, Obamacare was like making another slice in the pizza pie at the expense of making all the other slices smaller. It won’t be good for seniors, who IMO are far more vulnerable than working age folks.

Taxes will be going up for sure, but make no mistake, cuts are coming … it’s just a question of where. So those getting free healthcare, should realize their gain is the loss of so many other needy people and the loss of many other families who are just struggling to get by themselves.

In terms of personal attacks, when someone repeatedly calls me Fox News, they kind of open themselves up to being given a virtual smack down. I know all too well how that term is brandished about. So don’t play dumb, cause I won’t.

If you had read my posts you'd know that of the 6 trillion dollars in debt Obama incurred, only 600 billion is attributable to Bush's wars. So 10% of Obama’s debt is on Bush, fine, okay.

Also, if Obama wanted to correct Bush’s mistake of not paying for the Part D, maybe he should have used the revenues raised to pay for Obamacare to pay for that instead. He doesn’t get to complain that Bush did all these things that he didn’t pay for, then increases taxes and not use them to pay for things that already weren’t being paid for, but instead uses them for another massive entitlement program. That’s not very Presidential to say, well the other guy did this and I’m not going to fix it. That doesn’t help us. That’s not good for the country.

BO is a big part of the problem. Poor leadership … stupid decisions … blame Bush ... refusal to fix what ails us (including the stuff he said Bush did and were bad for our country)… kick the can down the road and let someone else deal with it. That’s his leadership style.

I noticed that you didn't specifically reply to most, if not all of the points in my prior. Instead, your reply contains generalities, for the most part. I understand from your priors you work hard and believe others take advantage of the taxes that you pay. Please tell us what field you now work in and what fields have you studied in?

I believe that we need to retool the budget process, gain increased efficiency, achieve higher effectiveness and get less duplication of services. Our government needs to do much better than it has to live within its means. So to earn my extra 4%, I expect DEMS and REPs to make adult, just, measured and thoughtful cuts to our expenditures.

If the POTUS and our representatives can't do that, I'll vote against each one that is up for reelection in 2014, 2016... I get it, as a former, fallen Obama supporter, you're angry. You helped elect the POTUS and you feel he let you down. So tell us: what did you expect him to do that he hasn't done and are your expectations reality-based?

A final note: while you probably don't care, in the adults' eyes here, you lose credibility as an honest broker when you call your POTUS juvenile names like O'Bummer. Adults have grownup discussions about things every day. The first guy who loses his cool, name-calls or otherwise confirms his emotions are ruling him loses the argument.

[QUOTE who="Chilli J"]<quoted text>I understand from your priors you work hard and believe others take advantage of the taxes that you pay.
It doesn’t really matter what I feel on a personal level about folks who have allowed themselves to become wards of the state. The main point you should take away from my posts is that we can’t afford all the handouts. The numbers don’t lie. Absent significant spending cuts, the whole ship goes down starting in 2021. Even with tax increases (and I’m not talking about the ones they just passed … those are nothing compared to what is needed) unless you want to double everyone’s taxes.

You say ^^^ this and you accuse me of generalities in the same post? That’s f’ing awesome. Thanks for the laugh.

We’ve already gotten a lot of the low hanging fruit when it comes to savings. So as nice as it sounds, you’re not going to get to a balanced budget with this. Any economist who isn’t a partisan hack acknowledges that unless we become China and our economy suddenly starts growing at 6-9 percent annually (don’t hold your breath) we need some rather significant spending increases AND significant spending cuts. The level of debt cannot rise any faster than growth or else we go backwards and every year we have less and less to spend on programs and more to spend on interest.
Chilli J wrote:

I agree. I would be willing to pay thousands of more in taxes every year, but that doesn’t get us out of our fiscal mess, without spending cuts. And when you look at the fact that 60% of our budget is on non-discretionary spending (i.e. entitlements), you really can’t get there without cuts to those programs.

You may wonder why I despise obamacare so much … it’s because I know that program will simply lead to more cuts to these other programs. You simply cannot get out of our debt problem without reforming them. Increased efficiency won’t get us there.

As I said, I really felt I had no choice but to vote for him, especially after Palin was named VP and started doing stupid talk on talk shows about how she’s an expert on foreign policy because Putin flies over Alaska on his way to DC. She is dumber than a doorknob, and regardless of my views, someone such as her being that close to the Presidency would be a threat to our nation.

I can’t call the POTUS O’dummy, but your buddy Ferrerman can use terms such as Rmoney and teabaggers?

What points would you like me to specifically address? My post contained generalities? Oh really? And your post about how everyone is a bad guy and not only Obama and it’s been that way for along time, wasn’t speaking to generalities.
