    Well over half of the long-term care needs of old people are paid through MediCare and Medicaid. Medicare basically pays only 100 days of skilled-level care, post-hospital, and provides for some home health care.

    The nursing home care for over 1.0 mil . people is paid through Medicaid. So in the face of an upcoming increase of people over age 65, called, "The Boomers:" What do the Republican Conservatives come up with: "Block Grants" for Medicaid, to the states!?

    Some one even wrote it down:

    "Medicaid would be sharply cut and awarded to states as a flexible block grant as would food stamps and housing assistance."

    Jews famously wrote down their own stories, even in the Old Testament(?). It is not clear how the New Testament writers, came up with their stuff--probably from some Jewish document, most closely reflected in Mark. Those may have been just famous sayings, only.

    Pilate, however, is widely conceded to have washed his own hands of the whole affair of the trial of Jesus Ben Joseph, Son of Mary. The laws of Rome were not involved in any execution that might occur. The local religion would be left to take care of its own, on its own. "Jesus comments unfavorably, on the The Laws of Moses:" Would become the Crucifix Art, clearly shown outcome. Jesus had been critical of the Law of Moses, even before.

    The Pontius Pilate model, then anyone sees, is clearly not a way to model Medicaid. The Conservative Religious Right Plan is to actually wash their hands of the entire program itself, turn money over to the states, and let them deal with the increase of population: Likely to become the victims, on their own.

    That is why even Senator, "Stoke and Toke" Santorum can't win in most of the States. Like Obama, Santorum is for refundable tax credit plans. Unlike Obama, he then allows payers to cross state lines, to buy from unadmitted insurers in other states. That probably makes sense to the newer Napa-Sonoma-Mendocino growers of Northern California. The plans are available, even on Venice Beach, in CA.

    Money gets sent, and nothing regulated comes from it. There is no planning, even for legitimate, inrease of costs. There are no cost-controls for the illegitimate ones,(?) however, created under the Santorum plan(?). . . .apparently like Rush Limbaugh. . . .claims to support(?). . . .unless he doesn't support any of them at all(?)!

    I love his budget because: it at least attempts to cut spending, it makes realistic changes to the tax code, it grandfathers all persons currently on Medicare, it moves Medicare administration to the States where it should be, and just because it is a budget. The Democrats have failed to putforth a budget instead following the Reid Plan of funding Departments and Programs through individual Bills and or following Obama who does nothing but BORROW.

    Rep. Ryan has sent out fantasies before, in the guise of plans. He is actually a chairman of a commitee: And not always of the like-minded.

    The Obama Administration, economic lubrication money, got sent to the states. They themselves mainly kept it: In the name of "Saving Jobs." So no tax base spending was created, and so "Disappearing Jobs" become legendary--as in nowhere noted--as giant main drag on the economic recovery.

    Even Romney, now, is trying to suggest that, "economies recover on their own:" As though no recovery money, ever in history, had been sent to anyone, at any time. Even the Catholic Church knows better than that. The giant public works of Cathedral and other building: Helped to pry away the old Medieval economics into the more Rennaisance kind of economics.

    War machines became more sophisticated, creating those kinds of building jobs.

    Rep. Ryan has so far managed to accomplish nothing, and mainly contributes nothing: And probably to his own campaigns, most likely(?)!

    Conservatives have all kinds of ways, to get nothing done.

    The GOP has alienated just about every other demographic. It's about time they attacked the elderly.

    and you've been proven wrong in just about every other thread you've posted in. It's about time you got proven wrong in this one too.

    Welcome to USMB, dadsgm, and hope you enjoy the boards.

    I agree that it is a far better budget than we've seen since the last administration.

    The spectre of no budget is pushing infinity spending off the charts.

    At lease someone is trying very hard to control bad legislation and shed some public light on the need for a budget that is within reason.

    I'm sure some democrats have tried, but unfortunately, that temptation to spend government money on feel-good programs that serve more to re-elect than serve the people must be terrible. :(

    Medicated Family Values aside: Anyone notices that mostly the only thing the Tea Party was able to accomplish, while in office, was a downgrade of the Credit Rating of the entire United States Federal Government.

    As is usual, Rep. Ryan was probably in there pitching: But Probably more like Rush Limbaugh, who mainly sits while pitching. Rush, then every so often, sits down and apologizes for the whole thing(?).

    And nothing gets done.

    Despite the--and over their loud chorus of "Nose(?)," which they claim to understand--Obama-Biden-Pelosi-Reid got major changes done! The Ivy League, they have to work on(?)--which the Republicans claim to understand(?)!

    Mega-Intransigence has in fact not been able to happen, even as the rudder-less House GOP found out they could not get away with nothing(?), as anything(?). . . .,or something(?)!

    Black commentator-commedians--also when sitting--probably have a mor. . . .spirited. . . .way of explaining it, more concisely.
