5 Reasons ObamaCare Will
Add Far More To Deficits

Investor´s Business Daily, by John Merline

Original Article

Posted By:RustMB, 2/27/2013 7:07:04 AM

On Tuesday, Sen. Jeff Sessions touted a government report that blew a $6.2 trillion hole in President Obama´s promise that his signature health reform wouldn´t add a dime to the deficit. According to the report by the Government Accountability Office, that promise rested entirely on several cost-control mechanisms in ObamaCare that almost no one thinks will work. [snip] Still, bad as this $6.2 trillion deficit boost is, the real figure is likely to be much higher, since the GAO is still being far too optimistic about the rest of ObamaCare. Here are five big assumptions the GAO makes...

It doesn´t add a single dime, it adds 62,000,000,000,000 dimes.

The coming revolution in HealthCare - whether you like it or not is: Instead of seeing a PA or Nurse practitioner - you will be diagnosed by a computer.

Blood, urine and saliva will be evaluated by special computer chips and the PC will give you a prescrition.

Is There An ObamaCar

Auto Safety: The Obama administration is pushing technology that will let cars "talk" to each other to avoid crashes. Sounds great. But do we really want the folks who built HealthCare.gov at the wheel of our automobiles? Earlier this week, the Department of Transportation announced plans to require all cars to come equipped with "vehicle to vehicle" communications technology it´s now developing. Once in place, these V2V devices would transmit information about car speeds and locations, warning drivers of danger. The system might even take control of a car to prevent a crash. Administration officials call it "game-changing" technology that could prevent 80%

   

 

  


 
Poll: Focus On Jobs, Not

President Obama says he wants to focus his administration´s efforts on closing the income gap between rich and poor, and Republicans in Congress have vowed to make immigration reform a top priority this year. Both are wildly out of touch with the American public, according to the latest IBD/TIPP Poll. When asked which should be a top priority of the president and Congress, 49% say the economy and jobs. Another 16% say it should be the national debt. Nine percent name national security. Just 6% list income inequality as a top priority, and the same minuscule share say it should

In late October 2013, the Obama administration sent $41.9 million to Minnesota for its state-built health exchange. It was the sixth ObamaCare grant awarded the state, and all told taxpayers ponied up $155 million to help build MNSure. But just 13 weeks after that last grant arrived, an independent consultant issued a damning report, saying Minnesota should consider scrapping MNSure entirely and starting over from scratch, citing systemic technical and management problems. A "large gap exists between required functionality and what has been delivered," the report stated . The state is now deciding what to do next. Minnesota isn´t alone in wasting federal

More bad news for Gov. Chris Christie: New Jersey is dead last in the nation in terms of its fiscal solvency, according to a new report. The study, released this week by the free-market Mercatus Center at George Mason University, ranked each state´s financial health based on a variety of measures, such as cash on hand to pay its current bills, budget surpluses or deficits, unfunded liabilities and ability to provide adequate public services. The Mercatus study used 2012 data. New Jersey came in last on two of those measures — budget and long-term solvency — and finished in the bottom 15 in

One in five Democrats now opposes ObamaCare, a record high, according to the latest IBD/TIPP Poll. And more than one in six Democrats now say they want it repealed, another new high. Overall, 55% of the public oppose the law, the highest since IBD/TIPP started asking this question in 2010. Just 37% support ObamaCare, matching a record low. And while support for outright repeal of the law inched down in January, that was because it fell among Republicans and independents. Among Democrats, support for repeal jumped 4 points. ObamaCare is also clearly driving down President Obama´s approval rating, which dropped to just 38%

ObamaCare´s Phony
Medicaid Promise Exposed

Failure: ObamaCare is driving millions of people into Medicaid, a program we now know does nothing to improve health and actually drives emergency-room use higher. A central premise of ObamaCare was that vastly expanding Medicaid would ultimately save health care dollars. The millions of uninsured gaining access to Medicaid would no longer crowd costly emergency rooms looking for care, the thinking went. And that improved access would keep them healthier. Turns out that neither of those claims is true. A study published late last week in the prestigious journal Science found that Medicaid actually increases emergency room use — by

With support for ObamaCare hitting all-time lows, the administration continues to cling to one bit of good news — the federal exchange website is working better than before. Healthcare.gov is "night and day compared to where we were back in October," Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told a House committee last week. And the insurance industry — which didn´t want to send people to a bug-filled website — is starting to unleash various ad campaigns. But getting people to enroll is just one of many problems facing ObamaCare. Several other land mines could cause further damage over the

ObamaCare Insurer Bailout

The public overwhelmingly opposes any ObamaCare bailout of the insurance industry, the latest IBD/TIPP Poll found, even as the Obama administration is paving the way to do just that. The survey found that 65% oppose a federal bailout of insurance companies that find their profits hit because not enough young, healthy people sign up for ObamaCare plans. Opposition is widespread, the poll of 907 adults found, with 51% of Democrats, 71% of Republicans and 76% of independents against it. It´s opposed by every age and demographic group as well. Although few people knew about it until recently, the health law contains a three-year

Millennials: Having failed to convince the public that ObamaCare is a good thing, President Obama on Wednesday tried selling his snake oil to young people. Turns out they aren´t buying it, either — nor should they. Despite the administration spending a fortune promoting ObamaCare, enlisting celebrities to endorse it, and telling moms to get their kids to sign up, most young people disapprove of the law. A Harvard University Institute of Politics survey of 18- to 29-year-olds found that 57% oppose ObamaCare. More than half think it will increase their costs, and a plurality (40%) believe it will hurt the quality of

Politics: We keep hearing about how the Republican Party is full of radical Tea Party crazies. But our latest IBD/TIPP Poll shows that it´s Democrats who are out of touch with reality and well outside the mainstream. The public overwhelmingly believes the country is headed in the wrong direction, that current economic policies aren´t working, that President Obama is doing a bad job, that government should be smaller and that ObamaCare should be repealed. But not Democrats. On issue after issue, in fact, Democrats are the outliers by wide margins, according to an analysis of the December IBD/TIPP survey.

Maybe the 10th time will be the charm for President Obama and his health care law. "The bottom line is this law is working, and will work into the future," Obama said Tuesday in a speech kicking off a month-long PR blitz for his signature legislation. "We´re not going back." Obama went on to highlight benefits he regularly touts, such as free preventive care, prescription drug savings for seniors, and the like. And he attacked the GOP for pushing for repeal. This is the 10th time the president has made public remarks defending ObamaCare since its disastrous launch on Oct.

Nearly four in 10 seniors worry ObamaCare will cause them to lose doctors they like, despite President Obama´s repeated promise to the contrary, according to the latest IBD/TIPP Poll. That translates into nearly 16 million people age 65 and over. Their concerns appear to be justified. Many seniors are, in fact, already losing access to their doc tors, and more than half a million are losing access to plans they liked this year, as $200 billion in ObamaCare-mandated cuts to the popular Medicare Advantage program start to take effect. Earlier this month, seniors learned that UnitedHealth (UNH) is dropping thousands

It is one of the most common - albeit, ineptly used - elements of the English language. Now, an American academic has suggested that the comma could be abolished as a punctuation mark. Professor John McWhorter claims removing commas from most modern U.S. texts would cause ´little loss of clarity´ - meaning they may now be in a state of obsolescence. He adds that internet users are becoming increasingly carefree in their use of the punctuation mark - with some professional writers following suit, according to The Times. ´[You] could take them out of a great deal of modern American

LONDON - Stronger winds which have cooled the surface of the Pacific Ocean could explain what is likely to be a temporary slowdown in the pace of global warming this century, researchers said.

SAN ANTONIO — We recommend incumbent John Cornyn for the GOP´s U.S. Senate nomination, based on unmatched experience and decades of service to Texas. The theme among a bevy of challengers seems to be that Cornyn is a CINO, a conservative in name only. This is not just counter-intuitive but counter-factual. Various ratings — liberal and conservative — have agreed on one thing, Cornyn´s conservative credentials are genuine. Not conservative? Cornyn is No. 2 in Senate leadership and diverged only slightly from the conservative playbook in a year in which he offered a measure that would further beef up security at the

Democrats from President Obama on down have been touting Obamacare´s sign-up numbers. Even after the system´s disastrous rollout, they like to point out, roughly three million people have signed up for private insurance, while 6.3 million have signed up for Medicaid. "Already, because of the Affordable Care Act, more than nine million Americans have signed up for private health insurance or Medicaid coverage," Obama said in the State of the Union speech. "Nine million." (Snip) But there is strong new evidence to suggest the administration's claims are grossly exaggerated and deeply misleading. Obamacare is not doing nearly as well as the

Incredible how Fox News Corp. talking head Bill O’Reilly—America’s biggest, television talking head who’s out there professing “Obama’s not a bad guy”—thinks he can get away with ‘pin-heading’ John Boehner for “pandering to radio talk show hosts” on amnesty. Guess bloviating Bill never takes the time to tune in to radio talk show hosts where John Boehner has been persona non grata for some time.

Count Polly Lower among those who quit their jobs because of the health-care law. It happened in September, when her boss abruptly changed her job description. She went from doing payroll, which she liked, to working on her boss’s schedule, which she loathed. At another time, she might have had to grit her teeth and accept the new position because she needed the health benefits. But with the health-care law soon to take effect, she simply resigned — and hasn’t looked back. “It was wonderful. It was very freeing,” said Lower, 56, of Bourbon, Ind., who is now babysitting her

On May 12, 1992, Stan Greenberg and Celinda Lake, top pollsters for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, issued a confidential memo. The memo’s subject was “Research on Hillary Clinton.” Voters admired the strength of the Arkansas first couple, the pollsters wrote. However, “they also fear that only someone too politically ambitious, too strong, and too ruthless could survive such controversy so well.” Their conclusion: “What voters find slick in Bill Clinton, they find ruthless in Hillary.” The full memo is one of many previously unpublished documents contained in the archive of one of Hillary Clinton’s best friends and advisers, documents that

Even nearly three years out, it’s become “common knowledge” which has been repeated by more folks than you can count. (Including yours truly) Hillary Clinton is going to run for President. How could she not? And assuming she does, she will most certainly win the Democrat nomination. On top of that, she will present a daunting challenge to the GOP candidate, no matter whether the nominee is “establishment” or “grassroots” or from the Planet Ork. But I’m seeing an increasing amount of speculation that perhaps the conventional wisdom is neither. Does she want to spend two more years on the

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin´s long fall in popularity back home has hit a new low, one that could spell an end to the buzz she´s considering a presidential bid in 2016. In a new poll, she would lose a head-to-head contest with Democrat Hillary Clinton, 44 percent to 43 percent. Worse, she doesn´t even lead among those considering a GOP primary bid. Sen. Rand Paul is tops among Alaska Republicans at 15 percent followed by Palin, who is tied with Sen. Ted Cruz at 13 percent; Jeb Bush at 12 percent, Mike Huckabee, 11 percent; New Jersey Gov. Chris

It was the perfect Christmas tableau at the Allen-Farrow household: There sat Mia and nine of her children around the dinner table. There were two turkeys, an abundance of side dishes, and in the middle, a carved angel. In came Woody Allen with a holiday greeting. “Pardon me while I puke,” he said, then went off to the kitchen to juice apples. Long before the scandals — Woody taking off with Mia’s adopted teen daughter Soon-Yi, Mia accusing Woody of molesting their 7-year-old daughter, Dylan — the Allen-Farrow family was regarded as the ultimate cosmopolitan clan, a multiracial brood of 11 children,
