Please don't propagate lies. And if you don't believe it is, then educate yourself on the subject. But then, you just might be one of those self-labeling conservatives who hates reduction in wasteful spending.

And I'm not going to repeat myself ad infinitum on this subject.

Take a pill. Get over it.
I didn't see any mention of the $50 billion they will be cutting from Medicare every year for that 10 year span. Have you or any of the left leaners ever stopped to think that to get at the $50 billion that is stolen each year in the Medicare usage only one year is needed and yet, they plan to take that same amount each year for 10 and although CBO has told them that you just can't take it and spend it on another entitlement, which is what they are planning, but for some reason nobody seems to be understanding that.

How much is spent on Medicare each year? Is it enough that the total $500 billion won't about finish Medicare by year 10? Seemingly you know the answers to these questions so I would appreciate seeing them.

Hey Eintstein! There is no CBO estimate yet. The "amendments" are still not in writing and have not been submitted to the CBO.

The James "I'm giddy over the score" Clyborne press conference was a dog & pony show of smoke and mirrors.

Whose lying?

I see that you think those doctors are liars. Do you have any proof that they are? I won't accept the words of Obama as proof of anything.

This bill creates dozens of new bureaucracies and administrations - employing hundreds if not thousands of new government workers - each likely getting paid $100k or more per year - all with lifetime government pensions. All paid for by you and me. HOW ON EARTH DOES THIS POSSIBLY SAVE MONEY?

I don't know what you said here so I don't think you need to repeat yourself.

Do you have something that shows they don't plan to take $500 billion from Medicare in the next 10 years.

It creates good jobs - but you're mentioning it prematurely.
