    Tuesday, April 5, The Republican-controlled House Budget Committee has posted the Wall Street Journal Report of the new budget plan, at the website. MediCaid becomes block grants, deliberately intended to restrict the services offered--especially in a downturn. MediCare becomes like (unsconstitutional(?)) ObamaCare. A mandatory pool of subsidized payers is created, with the important difference that no gurantees are offered that any benefits be offered in the plans at all.

    This is touted as being like the federal employees plan. That is the plan for people widely known to shoot to kill.

    Directly quoted is the welfare reform below, complete with the lack of assistance "incentive" in the event of economic downturn. As things get worse, then nobody gets any relief(?). Apparently, that is what public assistance is for(?):

    "Welfare reform: This budget will build upon the historic welfare reforms of the late 1990s by converting the federal share of Medicaid spending into a block grant that lets states create a range of options and gives Medicaid patients access to better care. It proposes similar reforms to the food-stamp program, ending the flawed incentive structure that rewards states for adding to the rolls. Finally, this budget recognizes that the best welfare program is one that ends with a job—it consolidates dozens of duplicative job-training programs into more accessible, accountable career scholarships that will better serve people looking for work."

    Middle Class mortgage assistance is ended. Subsidized energy is ended. Financial Stability is ended(?):

    "As we strengthen and improve welfare programs for those who need them, we eliminate welfare for those who don't. Our budget targets corporate welfare, starting by ending the conservatorship of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that is costing taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars. It gets rid of the permanent Wall Street bailout authority that Congress created last year. And it rolls back expensive handouts for uncompetitive sources of energy, calling instead for a free and open marketplace for energy development, innovation and exploration."

    Instead of MediCare, ObamaCare is put at the top of the Constitutional Health Care program, already in place since last year:

    "Health and retirement security: This budget's reforms will protect health and retirement security. This starts with saving Medicare. The open-ended, blank-check nature of the Medicare subsidy threatens the solvency of this critical program and creates inexcusable levels of waste. This budget takes action where others have ducked. But because government should not force people to reorganize their lives, its reforms will not affect those in or near retirement in any way."

    "Starting in 2022, new Medicare beneficiaries will be enrolled in the same kind of health-care program that members of Congress enjoy. Future Medicare recipients will be able to choose a plan that works best for them from a list of guaranteed coverage options. This is not a voucher program but rather a premium-support model. A Medicare premium-support payment would be paid, by Medicare, to the plan chosen by the beneficiary, subsidizing its cost."

    That paragraph above was in fact GOP-thought unconstitutional, only six months ago.

    "In addition, Medicare will provide increased assistance for lower- income beneficiaries and those with greater health risks. Reform that empowers individuals—with more help for the poor and the sick—will guarantee that Medicare can fulfill the promise of health security for America's seniors."

    Congress will force the poor to purchase a subsidized product: Which doesn't necessarily need to have anything in it(?)!

    So below, Budget Reform is reduced to the formation of another committee(?):

    "We must also reform Social Security to prevent severe cuts to future benefits. This budget forces policy makers to work together to enact common-sense reforms. The goal of this proposal is to save Social Security for current retirees and strengthen it for future generations by building upon ideas offered by the president's bipartisan fiscal commission."

    The new committee is intended to be just like the Obama Committee.

    Since ObamaCare is now widely in the public consciousness, then the significant departure of the Old, Fat, White People--Cavorting about naked on other people's yachts, dumping substance and other treasure into the sea--is that the health plans that will be offered to not necessarily have to really be health plans at all.

    Rock music they can be, or "Chant and Be Happy," Hare Krishna they can be!

    U. S. Mortgage Debt is elsewhere posted at $14.0 tril. That is paper on worthless real estate, owned by people clearly unable to keep up the value of their property: Being the kinds of folks they are.

    These people send their children to schools, where people who have no doctorates, allege that they are qualified to teach.

    The Schools themselves are running out of money, seeming to validate that really, these people: Are not very smart, at all.

    The House Budget Committee even wants you to know that Wall Street itself, so recently the target of the bail-outs money: Already knows what it is doing.

    Anyone notices: That even both sides in Lybia know far more about what they are doing, than the Republicans and Wall Street know what they are doing, just on their side.

    If the federal dbet-level activity ceases: On "All stop" will likely be the engine of economies worldwide.
