>>Ditto for big entitlement programs such as Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, whose "mandatory" funding does not have to be renewed annually by Congress. The Affordable Care Act is the newest addition to that club of budget heavyweights. <<

I despise the alphabet news.

Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid are funded by their so-called trust funds; that is an entirely different situation from Obamacare.

As a guest on Mark Levin's show explained a few nights ago, the rats wrote checks to spend on Obamacare, but there has to be money in the bank, i.e. an appropriation by congress.
