    What a cheap trick he is playing on seniors. Well, not cheap to tax payers, but I hope word of this gets out so they know they are still heading toward that cliff after the election.

    Is he counting on people being stupid and easy to fool or is he counting on the liberal media to help keep this from the people?

    HUH? tha money is bonus money paid to private providers of Medicare part C.

    Medicare advantage costs the govt 14% more than traditional medicare.
    This whole thing is corporate welfare for privatized medicare.


    Yes it sucks and Obama sucks for doing it but you have the entire story/concept wrong.
    Do some googling and reading and find out the truth.

    Yea. I saw this article. I only didn't post it b/c it was a bit of an equation and I didn't want to have to spend a lot of time explaining it to nimrods who won't accept the truth afterwards anyways.

    Basically he's using $8.3 billion of taxpayer dollars to hold their votes and then bam in 2013 they wake up to a kick in the ass.

    Good try. Only real problem with that position is the GAO is calling him on it.

    Yes the GAO is calling him on it it is corporate welfare.
    It IS bonus money for Medicaid Advantage private insurance outfits already funded more than standard medicare providers are.

    No not really Obama is shifting money to win an election so how many people think Obama care is going to actually save us money without rationing? Republicans have plans to save these programs where are the Democrats plans? Putting off the pain to win an election while using demagoguery on Paul Ryan who wants to reform and save these programs is pathetic

    Ok what part of that is untrue?

    yes Obama is selling corporate welfare as helping seniors. But that does not in any way make my statement untrue.
    It IS bonus money for Medicare Advantage corporations.
    And Medicare Advantage DOES cost 14% more on average than traditional Medicare.

    T initially get the Medicare Advantage passed in 97 (i think) they made the Advantage companys get 5% less than traditional Medicare.
    That has however been changed over the years. As I predicted at the time that it would. The govt now pays 14% more for medicare Advantage customers.
