Skip to comments.Another $17 trillion surprise found in Obamacare

Senate Republican staffers continue to look though the 2010 health care reform law to see whats in it, and their latest discovery is a massive $17 trillion funding gap.
The more we learn about the bill, the more we learn it is even more unaffordable than was suspected, said Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, the Republicans budget chief in the Senate.
The bill has to be removed from the books because we dont have the money, he said.
The hidden shortfall between new spending and new taxes was revealed just after Supreme Court justices grilled the laws supporters about its compliance with the Constitutions limits on government activity. If the court doesnt strike down the law, it will force taxpayers find another $17 trillion to pay for the increased spending.
The $17 trillion in extra promises was revealed by an analysis of the laws long-term requirements. The additional obligations, when combined with existing Medicare and Medicaid funding shortfalls, leaves taxpayers on the hook for an extra $82 trillion in health care obligations over the next 75 years.

They do too.
And we’re still supposed to believe we aren’t footing the bill for him and all his friends to vacation around the world or that we’re not paying for Moochelle’s wardrobe. Every time he writes a check, a good portion of it is sliding over to his personal bank account. He knows his way around a kickback just like he did when he was a young unknown junior senator who just happened to be getting the biggest kickbacks of all congresscritters from FannyMac.
Sure, and he just scribbled the whole thing out one night before turning out the light. This thing has been in the works for years. We know Hillary was pushing it back during her admin, so who else was in on it?
Here are two quotes from voting age white adults in Texas:
"But he's blaaaaack and he caaaaares about people. We don't need anymore old white men as president."
"Obama deserves another term."
Is that another name for the Nov. election?
What's the thickness of xerox paper? Isn't that what they're printing money on now days?
“Plan “B” is for Obama to run against a “rogue” Supreme Court, while pushing for what he and his pals have wanted all along: a single-payer, government run health care system.
It does sound like a scheme hatched from the minds of Cloward and Piven, doesn’t it?
But here’s another possibility: let’s say that the Democrats had an alternate plan [Plan B above] in case ObamaCare was ruled unconstitutional. Okay - let us stipulate that they in fact have such a plan because they always do. “
“THEY ALWAYS DO” -— Yes, they do!
Remember that they also
1) capitalize on events with which to CREATE crisis.
2) ALWAYS try to kill two or more birds with one stone-—always.
Your Plan B is as good as any reasoned guess (except for, perhaps, one or two caveats).
Finally, The Obama Adm was the one who pushed the timing of this case to SCOTUS. Mark Levin verified this. They could have easily delayed til closer to or after the election, so that no decision was issued until after the election.
I found that move very suspicious from the beginning. We may know more about their intentions by who of their appointed minions (including the MSM) says what and when. Already, the issuing of designated talking points and focus-group trial balloons has commenced to determine what “pig” will fly.
Here we go. Very hostile/threatening statement from the czar-in-chief:
President Barack Obama voiced confidence Monday that the Supreme Court will uphold his health care law in his first public remarks on the issue since the three days of oral arguments last week.
Obama suggested that the high court would be guilty of judicial activism if it overturned the law, and stressed that he believed the justices would see the individual mandate as an integral part of the law.
We are confident that this will be upheld because it should be upheld, Obama said at a joint news conference with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Mexican President Felipe Calderon.
Barack Obama: Supreme Court wont overturn health care law
DRUDGE Headline linking the same article: Obama dares court to overturn healthcare law...
President Obama preemptively slammed the Supreme Court as a bunch of "unelected group of people" who will have turned to "judicial activism or a lack of judicial restraint" if they decide to strike down his signature legislative achievement, the healthcare reform act.
Obama was speaking at a trilateral event with the Prime Minister of Canada and President of Mexico.
