CNN's O'Brien Corrects Right-Wing Media Medicare Falsehood

O'Brien pointed out that Sununu's talking point has been debunked by the Congressional Budget Office, which found that the Medicare savings in the ACA are not cuts, but rather a reduction in the expected rate of growth of the program.

O'Brien also noted that independent fact-checkers have found that the Affordable Care Act does not cut Medicare benefits. These fact-checkers also determined that the claim that hundreds of billions of dollars have been cut from Medicare is outright false.

I can say you have "no clue" also. Proving it is another matter. BTW, Temecula isn't near me, stupid. I have attorneys in my family, they use Word Perfect. What I can't believe is that a so called "centrists" would be arguing over something like this. you fool no one. You went way off topic...sorry I hurt your feeling...not really.
"Why Lawyers Love WordPerfect"
http://www.microcounsel.com/nextgen.htm
BS...as expected. My sister is a lawyer; 38; doesn't use WordPerfect. Many offices still may, to some degree, but that's because they've had the same stingy old lawyers and creaky old secretaries since the Stone Age. "At the height of its popularity in the 1980s it was a dominant player in the word processor market, but has long since been eclipsed in number of users by Microsoft Word. While best known in its DOS and Microsoft Windows versions, its popularity was based in part on the fact that it was available for a wide variety of computers and operating systems, including Mac OS, Linux, the Apple IIe, a separate version for the Apple IIgs, most popular versions of Unix, VMS, Data General, System/370, AmigaOS, Atari ST, OS/2, and NeXTSTEP." What do the phrases "in the 1980's" and "long since been eclipsed" mean to the bounced Czech? Dude, indeed, lol.

Closing out his fourth year in office, President Obama has an 8.3 percent unemployment rate. He also boasts the lowest rate of participation in the labor force in 30 years (63.7 percent). More Americans are out of work than at any time in the preceding 30 years. There are 7 million more persons in poverty than when he took office, a jump from 39.8 million to 47 million. When pressed to explain these figures, the president points his finger at the state of the economy when he took office. That’s his excuse.

But the reasons for the 2008 economic calamity were set forth at least eight years before its onset by colleagues of mine at the American Enterprise Institute, led by the prescient, intrepid, and persistent Peter Wallison.

Wallison and the others did their best to strip the disguises off the darling ideas about housing held by Democrats Barney Frank in the House and Christopher Dodd in the Senate. Through Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, those two and other Democrats (with a minority of Republicans) were force-feeding government-guaranteed mortgages to borrowers who had no reasonable chance to keep up with monthly payments. Such borrowers would never before have been approved for mortgages. These empty-headed, thoughtless (albeit well-intentioned) approvals undermined the whole U.S.(and world) financial sector.

You pompous ass. You've been chewing on this bone all week. From someone who spends her day spreading falsehoods most of em straight from the mouth of Bill O'Reilly, your post is priceless......
Hart makes clear that she remains a supporter of the president, saying, "It takes a long time [to turn the economy around], especially when you only have four years, and I want him to have eight, so he can truly advance the agenda he’s thinking about."
Any port in a storm, eh?

Who cares what the Fact Checkers are saying on this topic?
When you remove $714 billion from Medicare to pay for ObamaTax & Care (as vouched for by the CBO) you have removed the money from Medicare. The fact that you attempt to argue with this obvious and common sense knowledge shows you are way too much of LEFT shill.
Now that the issue is ObamaTax & Care is paying for its' funding by taking monies out of Medicare is a settled issue (except for the Left deniers). The claim is that they will attempt to make up for the missing money taken from Medicare by limiting waste, fraud and abuse, mostly in Medicare Advantage, and are budgeted to help subsidize insurance for people under the ACA. To ensure this 'savings" will be protected to pay for ObamaTax & Care there is a panel who will slash Medicare payments to keep the 714 billion secure for the new program.
It was subtle but not so careful slight of hand Fact Checker pulled.

Boehner Calls Opponents To TARP "Knuckledraggers"

VAN SUSTEREN, FOX News: People think of him as hawkish on the budget, on expenses, but he voted for TARP. He voted for the auto bailout, voted for two stimulus in '08, voted against the '09 -- February '09 President Obama stimulus. How does -- I mean, how does he explain those, or I mean, how does -- politically, how does he sell that?

BOEHNER: I mean, I think that he's a practical conservative. He's got a very conservative voting record, but he's not a knuckle-dragger, all right? He understood that TARP, while none of us wanted to do it, if we were going to save -- save our economy, save the world economy, it had to happen. I wish we didn't have to do it, either, but he understood that.

still the same wrote:
Unless you’re Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.
Then it’s whispering a sweet £2.5million – the amount the couple have dropped on their fledgling relationship in just FOUR months.
The ego-stroking spendaholics have become so obsessed with flashing their cash at each other that they’ve forked out £1.25million each on cars, holidays and other pressies.
Only dating officially since April, their romantic gifts to each other have included:
A £478,000 black Lamborghini which Kim bought Kanye for his 35th birthday in June;
A £21,000 white sapphire-encrusted gold skull statue which Kanye gave Kim in July (um, thanks?);
Plus they’ve spent £446,000 on just getting to their many holidays in London, Paris, Cannes and Mexico by private jet or first class.
My source said:“As much as they adore each other, they’re both very strong-willed and there is a bit of a power struggle in the relationship.
"Both Kim and Kanye want to show they have their own money and fame outside of them getting together.
“But they’re so besotted with each other that although they’re spending so much, they barely bat an eyelid when they see the price tag or bill.
“After all, they’re both multi-millionaires at the start of a big love affair.”
And there’s no signs of it slowing down either.
As Kim, 31, says:“When I’m in love, you can’t tell me anything. I’m in love with love!”
Hmm. Her bank manager might have something to say about that.
My insider continues:“It’s coming up to their six-month anniversary and they’ve got a lavish weekend planned.
“Both Kim and Kanye have told friends that they want to get each other the most extravagant gifts.”
HE SURE DOES ALOT FOR HIS PEOPLE lololoohahahaha
James Patterson, author and pretty good earner, broke the bank in 2011 with a whopping $94 million. That's not an every year occurrence but the old boy has been near the top lately__just for telling stories that make sense__unlike you you and your mopey friends who work ten times as hard to say 100 times less, Oh My!.

For her twatty little part, Kim K earns more than all the posters and readers on this thread combined. And works both smarter and harder for it.

Now you blame market conditions on the loss of our manufacturing jobs???
I don't totally blame Bush & the Republicans. If you recall,my post was in response from one of your right wing buddies having the typical right wing tissy fit about manufacturing contracting in the last jobs report.
Evidently it is OK to blame Obama for that & not blame Bush for flushing 1/3 of those jobs down the toilet.
I blame people like Mitt Romney & the Wall Street Crowd. Someday I'll explain it.
I blame those who decided to delay corp income tax collection until the foreign profits come back.
And I will Blame Pail Ryan & Mitt Romney & the Republicans if they pass their idea that foreign earned corporate profits are tax free. If you vote for them,. I will blame you too for being so stupid.

The ACA reduces the growth of Medicare.

It does not reduce benefits.

It adds benefits.

It saves 700 billion dollars.

Period.

I guess the Romney/Ryan plan doesn't save any money? Is that it?

Or are are they "stealing" from Medicare?

Joe Biden's "Chains" of Slavery: Who Would Have Guessed That Mitt Romney is a Closet Black Nationalist?

Sometimes a person has no choice but to yield to the absurd in order to protect their sanity. As such, I will take Mitt Romney's obsession with the chains of racism and Joe Biden as an opportunity to have a cathartic laugh, and to turn matters on their ear, in order to expose the foolishness and insincerity which colors the Right's most recent discovery of anti-black racism.
