Another myth Retardo is passing out.
The 716 billion in cuts for Medicare that Retardo and the scare tactic Republicans lie about comes from cuts from insurance companies that offer private Medicare plans. The government is making changes to provider payments, and correcting over payments to insurance companies.That projected savings will be used to close the prescription drug "doughnut hole'. Medicare patients will lose nothing. It's the governments job to protect the tax payer against over charges by greedy insurance companies.
Okay Barry Junior, I'm sure you got it right this time. LOL...

If you think your current plan allows you to see any physician in the plan, nothing will change. Health plans are already building bigger networks in anticipation of new patients, so choices could be even better. Many of these provisions are aimed at improving quality of care, including some that encourage more physicians to become primary care doctors. Of Retardo doesn't believe this because it doesn't fit into his hate of Obama.

Recardo, notice how the Buffoon who corrects others doesn't use the correct word? Here is a lesson TV BUFFOON:When to use then, and when to use than:(oh there are no bonds or investments quoted here, so don't get excited)

A pair of words that is misused far more often than not is "than" and "then". As with the words "affect" and "effect", than and then are so commonly misused that I suspect that more than mere carelessness is involved. I now believe that many people are either unaware that they are two separate words, or if they are aware of the two words, they have no idea of which is which, which is the case of the TV BUFFOON.

The word than is not related to time. Than is used in comparative statements.
EXAMPLES:

~A pair of words that I see misused far more often than not is than and then.
~He is taller than I am.
~Other than the interest on a small inheritance, he had no income.
(That should interest TV BAFFOON it mentioned income).
~Despite their lack of flavor, the hothouse tomatoes cost far more than those from the farmers' market.

THEN :Then is used either as a time marker or with a sequence of events. EXAMPLES would be:

~I took all of the exams in the morning, and then I spent the rest of the day catching up on sleep.
~Back then we knew what was expected of us.
~I bought apples from this orchard last summer, but I seem to remember paying more for them then.
~Look over the study guide first, and then if you still have questions bring them up in class.

I would suggest that TV BAFFOON check out the Religious, Waco,
Website, although you do not (as usual) give the website.
Maybe you should take my advice and stay on the Financial webistes and leave the politics to patriotic Americans, not greedy, soulless Pagans that worship $$$$$$. I hope you do TV Thing, you may learn something, and save your own soul at the bargain.
If you weren't so antagonistic with people I would not have said anything, but I believe most posters here would agree that You
deserve it.
I guess when Romney wins, the stock market will go crazy on the upside, and your junk will turn in to just that.
Pray to GOD, not your bankbook, and bonds.

Really! I never claimed to be an English teacher. In fact I made a C in English. However, I seem to communicate without a problem. Never really wanted to be a teacher anyway, the pay was much to low. One more thing, if Romney wins my bonds will love it. Why don't you study up on how bonds work, and get back to me. Don't be so concerned about me and God, we've got a plan, more then I can say Romney.

What a terrible football weekend, at least for me.

First the Irish kicked the Sooners butt, Notre Dame's interior line on both sides of the ball mauled the Sooners' front, completely dominated the Sooners in the second half and especially in the fourth quarter.

Then I went to Dallas and saw the worst football ever played by a team in the first 20 minutes of the first half, the Cowboys trailed the Giants 23-0. If it weren't for Cowboys outstanding defensive effort, the Giants would have led by more than 35 points. The Cowboy offense and special teams gave away the ball four times in the first half, a total of six in the entire game.

Yet the Cowboys nearly pulled it out in the last 16 seconds. An apparent Dez Bryant touchdown catch was nullified by instant replay showing Bryants' fingers just beyond the back of the end zone, out of bounds, as he came down after making the catch.

I've been a Cowboys fan all my life, but next week the Cowboys play the unbeaten Falcons in the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, where I live in its metro.

Who do I root for? I won't be disappointed if a Falcons' victory takes the Falcons to 8-0. But I won't be able to help myself. I'll still be pulling for the Cowboys.

Better luck next time, it was a good sports weekend for me, besides my college team winning, the Giants sweep!

Who Is The Smallest Government Spender Since Eisenhower? Would You Believe It's Barack Obama?
It’s enough to make even the most ardent Obama cynic scratch his head in confusion.

Amidst all the cries of Barack Obama being the most prolific big government spender the nation has ever suffered, Marketwatch is reporting that our president has actually been tighter with a buck than any United States president since Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Courtesy of Marketwatch-

In fiscal 2010 (the first Obama budget) spending fell 1.8% to $3.46 trillion.
In fiscal 2011, spending rose 4.3% to $3.60 trillion.
In fiscal 2012, spending is set to rise 0.7% to $3.63 trillion, according to the Congressional Budget Office’s estimate of the budget that was agreed to last August.
Finally in fiscal 2013 — the final budget of Obama’s term — spending is scheduled to fall 1.3% to $3.58 trillion. Read the CBO’s latest budget outlook.

So, how have the Republicans managed to persuade Americans to buy into the whole “Obama as big spender” narrative?

It might have something to do with the first year of the Obama presidency where the federal budget increased a whopping 17.9%—going from $2.98 trillion to $3.52 trillion. I’ll bet you think that this is the result of the Obama sponsored stimulus plan that is so frequently vilified by the conservatives…but you would be wrong.

The first year of any incoming president term is saddled—for better or for worse—with the budget set by the president whom immediately precedes the new occupant of the White House. Indeed, not only was the 2009 budget the property of George W. Bush—and passed by the 2008 Congress—it was in effect four months before Barack Obama took the oath of office.

Accordingly, the first budget that can be blamed on our current president began in 2010 with the budgets running through and including including fiscal year 2013 standing as charges on the Obama account, even if a President Willard M. Romney takes over the office on January 20, 2013

We need Obama's healthcare reform!
I have been helping people save Money on their health insurance for over 20 years and I actually read the Health care reform bill before it became law. Quite frankly there is so much west of money in the law I don’t know where to start. If the government is so good at running a health care program why not just open Medicare to everyone? After all it’s already in place no need for a new one.

His vacation allowance has to be bigger than an Eisenhower budget. He and his family have been behaving like lottery winners.

the information you linked to is also about spending rates. It is not about total spending. There is a difference between a rate value and a total value. This is a simple math concept that you don’t seem to understand. I am not even raising a political point–this is simply a mathematical idea that you are dismissing. A rate of change value is not the same as a total aggregate value. On aggregate, no president has spent more dollars than Obama. However, no president since Eisenhower has spent at a slower rate than Obama. There is a difference.
