In Response to Re: Medicare Health Care Reform - Accountable Care Organizations:
[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Medicare Health Care Reform - Accountable Care Organizations : Do you think we should have the GSA oversee the expenditures of medical funds so they can control costs for us. We have a Congress that cannot pass a budget, a president who cannot admistrate his executive responsibilities, and a Supreme Court that wants to legislate rather than adjudicate. The government collected Social Security for years from me and now they suggest it may be undefunded in part because of mishandling and during the time of crisis a President advocates a tax cut by decreasing social securty taxe. Regarding Medicare the president plans on stealing 1/2 trillion dollars to support a bankrupt medical program which will colla[se the economy. Someone told me he will get the money by correcting abuses, but that is still medicare money not a bank at his disposal. His medical program should be found to be unconstitutional on individua, religious and states rights issues. Now tell me truthfully, were you joking?

Where do I begin? Congress can't pass a budget
Congress says no to penalizing companies for taking jobs overseas & rewarding the ones who stay. (sept 2010)
No to equal pays
No to students
No to high speed rail
No to end to oil subsidies ( even if we can't afford it. )
No to extending unemployment benefits for millions out of work
No to reversing Bush tax cuts for the 2%.
The Obama-democrats never had the 2/3 of senate 60 votes and the republicans used the fillibuster and silent holds for not getting things done.
Soc Security receipients are living longer. The truth is that, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, Social Security is fully funded until 2030, and the dates change according to the economy & participation..at which point, we have to assume this country will have no increase in productivity to really be in big trouble but I have more confidence in our country to excell beyond what we are enduring today.
Some shocking Obamacare facts Everyone in 2014 will be stunned once Obamacare kicks into full gear. Pass this around for the 2012 election. . Medicare's trust fund will be extended 12 years. Seniors have free preventive care and check ups. Lots of money have been saved through waste trimming and fraud recollecting.
While telling their diehards they're repealing Obamacare in full, the republicans are misleading the public and telling them they can keep the provisions that protect them from insurance company abuses. Many of the Obamacare provisions the Republicans say they'd like to keep are ones that are already in effect.
