Over $600 billion in cuts to Medicaid 

ToidBoid --- 4 years ago -

I believe he said MediCARE - Obama took $700B out of MediCARE to fund Obamacare. 

fuzz81 --- 4 years ago -

Here's exactly what he said

"I'm not going to cut Social Security like every other Republican and I'm not going to cut Medicare or Medicaid." 

Jepperd --- 4 years ago -

Trump breaks campaign promises everyday. Shoot, during the campaign he backtracked to tons of stuff he said. He says what is popular at the time and his blind follows eat it up

His tweet

If you like your Doctor you can keep your doctor. A nuclear armed Iran is a game changer. If they use chemical weapons then they've crossed a line in the sand.

So your defense of him is "the other guy did it too!"? 

Dorothy Parker --- 4 years ago -

That's their go-to to defend Trump. "But Obama, But Hillary, But Democrats..."

The man can't stand on his own merits because he has none to stand on. Being "not Hillary" is enough for the KU Konservatives. 

DatBoyHooD --- 4 years ago -

lol dp yetvtgr left blamed and brought up bush for eight years

But Bush!!!!!!

We heard that for 4+ years. 

JustWatching --- 4 years ago -

I guess the KU liberals don't understand the art of negotiating anything. The budget he proposed will not be what is passed but he has to start somewhere in his negotiations.

Since you liberals don't know what his thoughts are then how can you talk. Why don't you wait and see what is passed before you start complaining? 

Joe Blow --- 4 years ago -

Obama took $700B out of MediCARE to fund Obamacare


FALSE. Untrue. A lie.

This claim -- that the Affordable Care Act is funded by plundering the health care program of seniors -- is an old Republican talking point, dating back to the 2010 midterm elections. We?ve checked out many versions of this claim, which contains some truth but is misleading.

Obamacare doesn?t literally "rob" Medicare. But the Affordable Care Act does include provisions that reduce future increases in Medicare spending. In other words, the law slows down the rising costs of Medicare.

It?s also important to note that the savings come at the expense of insurers and hospitals, not beneficiaries. (The $700 billion figure is also old, from a 2012 report by the Congressional Budget Office. It?s now updated to about $800 billion.) 

Joe Blow --- 4 years ago -

BTW:

LMFAO 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 4 years ago -

Doesn't matter.

Obamacare FAILED miserably on it's own.

Just like the conservatives said it would. 

JustWatching --- 4 years ago -

That's true. Get around that liberals. 

Prolix Raconteur --- 4 years ago -

FALSE. Untrue. A lie.

Then why in the first paragraph you so stealthily copied/pasted does it say "contains some truth but is misleading". By Politifact standards, the claim is spot on. LMFAO.... 

Karras --- 4 years ago -

Where did you get your copy of the budget? I mean it was released today. Did you read it or are your just parroting democrat losers.

I can't recall any president's budget being approved without adjustment.

However, as Jack Kemp said we shouldn't measure our compassion by how much we are spending on people, but by how many people who don not need assistance. 

JustWatching --- 4 years ago -

Well said! 

AMDG --- 4 years ago -

but by how many people who don not need assistance.

well in the proposed plan ( what I have read of it ) and with the Saudi deal - seems like the major defense contractors should be ok. 

Karras --- 4 years ago -

[i]major defense contractors should be ok[/

Don't be a hater 

Joe Blow --- 4 years ago -

the Saudi deal


How about that! Dealing with those that killed 3,000 of our citizens by selling them arms. The art of the deal!

LMFAO 

dkeller --- 4 years ago -

I wasn't happy when he broke the promise to repeal the ACA. To listen to him; he doesn't even seem to remember that's what he initially promised.

But, I am happy he broke this promise though and is going to cut back on Medicaid.

IMO it was time. 

Dorothy Parker --- 4 years ago -

Why do you feel that way, Dkeller? 

dkeller --- 4 years ago -

Hi Dorothy Parker; enjoy your contributions by the way :)

I have seen many first hand incidents where parents buy many things before they buy insurance for their children; loads of Christmas decorations, new TVs, a newer car... you name it.

As a former teacher I have seen it all. I think if they cut Medicaid it will force a closer look at all the fraud being perpetuated and not just in the Children's Insurance division.

I think it is high time for the funds to be cut so that they can choose more "tightly" who they help. But, I would recommend that for all these types of programs.

The Food Stamp program is full of people that I see with loads of junk in their baskets but not enough money for food.

Yes, we should help the poor but not the wasteful and negligent who can say, "Look.. see.. not enough money to take care of my kids". When anyone that knows them knows what cr** they have spent their money on.

So why not advocate for reform in different ways? Cutting it by $600 Billion with a B is going to have serious impact on those who genuinely need it.

What do you say to those who genuinely need it? 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 4 years ago -

That's their go-to to defend Trump. "But Obama, But Hillary, But Democrats..."

The painfully obvious point is that all politicians do that. 

dkeller --- 4 years ago -

The simple truth is because that calm reform wouldn't have had the impact that Trump seeks when making decisions.

He used a sledgehammer when a scalpel would have been the better instrument but I would prefer the drastic cuts and then the work in the field by the social workers of who gets what versus that the cuts never happen.

Let's face it; Democrats are very reluctant to cut a big chunk out of Medicaid and I feel this may be our only chance to rollback the amount of monies going into entitlement programs.

I understand many people don't feel this way but for me I am glad this happened.

And, thanks for presenting the other side. Sometimes I think you have good points that the others just immediately ridicule so it reduces your credibility and it shouldn't.

How , exactly , do you know that? Are you familiar with running the program or is that just your opinion? You don't have a clue as to what a cut like that would do. BTW...a cut like that may just take the program back to where it was a few years ago before it got bloated.

What I think is real funny is that when the dumbocrats cut military spending where was the uproar about our defense? The liberal left are always for giveaway programs to help them get elected. Yet they are not interested in defending our country. 

Dorothy Parker --- 4 years ago -

Dkeller, thanks for responding.

I agree with having foodstamps structured in a way that mitigates fraud and having it limited to healthy choices, the problem is, ramen is a lot cheaper than fresh produce.

Cutting money to provide healthcare to children is something I strongly disagree with. We don't choose who we're born to or have control over the choices they make as parents. I believe healthcare is a right, not a privilege. 

sdanielmcev --- 4 years ago -

Future spending does not cut current spending. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 4 years ago -

I believe healthcare is a right,

you have the right to all the health care you can buy. 

JustWatching --- 4 years ago -

Actually, the dumbocraps consider it a cut in spending if you keep the amount of money spent on a program the same as last year.

Bla bla bla. @ bob. 2 items of questionable activity in 8 years. And that was an effort in favor of All Americans. Trump is every day. And cutting health care for all those old and sick folks sure isn't going to benefit anyone.
With this president, democrats are not the only ones that lost the election.

Speaker Ryan gave a good definition on how states must have "risk" precautions should they opt out of pre-existing conditions.
Here come the death panels.

Trump at NATO. No surprise...
Stick em up! Pay your fair share, it would be a shame if something were to happen.

are we great yet?

Still waiting on that $2500 annual health insurance savings check he promised me too.

Pay your fair share

This is a foreign concept to someone who has always relied on others to get them through life.

Do you ever have any clue what you are talking about?

There is something wrong with getting them to do what they said they would do? I don't see anything wrong with it. The US can't solve all the problems of the world.

NATO says it will pay its dues when Trump proves he pays his taxes.

LMFAO

Be a shame to have to close Landstuhl.
