    Do people realize just what a low move this is? Obama destroys medicare advantage that millions of seniors count on and is postponing it under the guise of an "experiment" till after the election. Because he knows his re-election would be in dire straights if it is not hidden from these poor seniors. Just an FYI to all concerned, Obamacare will halt destroying your medicare advantage till after he is re-elected. There you have it

    What a low move :mad:

    This is our President, and many wonder why many of us loathe this administration.


    Congress should immediately launch an investigation into this unprecedented misuse of taxpayer money and violation of the public trust, which certainly presses the boundaries of legality and very well may breach them.

    If he’s not stopped, Obama will spend $8 billion in taxpayer funds for a scheme to mask the debilitating effects on seniors of his signature piece of legislation just long enough to get himself re-elected.

    Now that is some serious audacity.

    A comment at the link

    By now, nobody (including Obamacare supporters) should be surprised by yet another destructive/failed component of this legislation. Everybody over 65 and those nearing it should be outraged at this duplicitous, insidious, devious attempt to manipulate them to vote for Obama, who will turn around and stab them in the back after the election. Another new low achieved by the White House and HHS.

    They are waiting to receive their daily talking points. Soon, they'll come and all say the same exact thing, which will probably be attacking Ryan. Just a prediction.

    There is no talking point around the fact that Obama unilaterally created his own "doc fix" in order to prevent the first Medicare Advantage cuts from taking place this year, as they were supposed to under the ACA passed by Congress.

    The reimbursement cuts would have been activated just three weeks before the election and there would have been a shit ton of pissed off seniors in a heavy swing state like Florida.

    In order to pay for ObamaCare, the MA reimbursement cuts had to happen. Since he has shelled out $8 billion to avoid the cuts in the first year, ObamaCare is officially running in the read. Already.

    Obama circumvented the act with a sham "demonstration project" which the CBO has smoked him out on.

    So much for his "not one dime" promise about not allowing any plan which would cause ObamaCare to add to our national debt. That was 80 billion dimes of lies. So far. And we're barely out of the gate!

    Anything to get re-elected. So much for Change. So much for transparency.

    This is one scam which the Obama fans have no excuse for. They are going to have to hope no one notices this one.

    Hell, it is probably unnoticed to most of his supporters, too.

    Mushrooms.
