What happened to $634B Obama put in Omnibus as "down payment" on health care?
Washington Post ^ | 8/11/09 | timeout

Posted on 08/11/2009 2:37:49 PM PDT by Timeout

In March Obama proposed $634 Billion in his budget as a "down payment" or "reserve" for health care reform.

I don't recall if it made it to the final bill. I do know Congress rejected his proposal to offset it by eliminating charitable deductions for high earners. So maybe it got tossed altogether.

If it's in the Omnibus Budget, how does that work? Is that money included in the spending side of the health care bill?

OK, I admit I spent it. I threw a party in Las Vegas and you weren’t invited.

Oh, I’m sure that was walking around money, and will be used to buy Democrat votes for this bill and in the 2010 elections.

As I recall, it was in the final bill. That’s why the spending was $3.6 trillion, and the deficit $1.2 trillion for 2010...

I never heard it was taken out.

So how does that work? Is it being used somehow to reduce the reported spending in this monster health bill?

You were at the birthday celebration and dining on $240 a la carte wagyu beef with x42, et al?

Consider this and then add the billions of dollars in the “Stimulus” bill that will be used to convert all of our medical records to electronic filing. Would love to see the media add all of these components together and tell the truth about what will actually be spent on health care in the future. Oh yeah, be sure you include our out-of-pocket expenses - you know, the ones that Congress refuses to acknowledge in the “true cost” of any of their bills.

Remember this morning we were discussing the "Omnibus" Bill. I was wondering if it was the same one we were hearing about a few months ago. I did a FR search for Ominibus and this thread came up.

I’ll try to top it up.

Maybe someone knows the answer.
If my suspicions are correct, this money shd be added to the cost of their ridiculous “reform” bill.
