Mugato: The Obama Administration is having pretty much the worst week everYou misspelled republican douchebagstrying to make scandals out of bullshiat. It's getting embarrassing.
Popcorn Johnny: Lol liberals are goddamn insane.
In addition, the CBO notes that the growth in healthcare spending has slowed in recent years. For instance, spending on Medicare and Medicaid in 2012 was 5% below what the CBO predicted it would be in 2010. In a response to this slowdown, the CBO has reduced its estimates for the growth of such spending, projecting that those programs will cost $225 billion less than previously thought over the next ten years.
Isitoveryet: Do you know how pissed GOP'ers are going to be if this is accurate?
dookdookdook: But Michele Bachmann told me the IRS and DOJ 'scandals' are just to distract from Benghazi! Who should I believe?!?!
Captain Dan: Isitoveryet: Do you know how pissed GOP'ers are going to be if this is accurate?They'll chalk it up to the sequester, until the economy slows down, at which point they'll blame tax increases the sequester.

Yakk: The week has been (Caddyshack II + New Coke) x Season Five of 24 for Obama.
flamingboar: I've been trying to keep up with the scandals but it makes my head hurt, especially the Benghazi talking points. Why do they matter so damn much?
gozar_the_destroyer: At the end of the article, it says that eventually cuts in social programs combined with tax raises will be needed to manage the budget. Why not just reduce military spending and/or government spending by working on efficientcy instead? It would be easier and would maintain the health of the economy.
Dimensio: The spending cuts of the sequester, which was the idea of the Republicans, are responsible for any economic growth. Any economic downturn is a result of the sequester, which was entirely Obama's idea.
hawcian: I thought the standard response to any unwanted CBO numbers is that they are based on faulty inputs.

Popcorn Johnny: My side is always right and your side is always wrong. You wonder why us Independents sit back and laugh our asses off at both sides.
Curious: we don't let the grown ups govern. we let the people who have a vested interest in a particular project like the A1M1 decide their constituents jobs are more important than what a few hundred million other people want.cuz it's all about the jobs.no not on infrastructure silly, weapons. those are good high tech union jo -- wait those are union jobs? maybe it's time to rethink this.
Popcorn Johnny: Can anybody in this thread admit that their guy, Obama, might have done something wrong?
Pick: Obama can't win, because Obama isn't doing anything.
