Medicare Spared From Budget Cuts in 2018 (261 hits)

Medicare Spared From Budget Cuts in 2018

But this program and others essential to seniors still face threat of cuts
by Gary Strauss, AARP, December 22, 2017

Congress has acted to prevent mandatory funding cuts to Medicare and other programs vital to millions of older Americans that were set to occur as a result of the new tax overhaul legislation.

The Tax Cut and Jobs Act, which the president signed today, is projected to add $1.5 trillion to the deficit over the next decade. Under the 2010 pay-as-you-go law known as PAYGO, that increase to the deficit would have triggered automatic spending cuts to programs, including a $25 billion cut to Medicare in 2018 alone. But in an AARP-supported move, the House and Senate on Thursday waived the required cuts as part of a temporary spending bill to prevent a government shutdown. Thousands of AARP members contacted their legislators, urging them to act before the end of the year and prevent the Medicare cuts.

That is right Steve, Great news from a year ago but don't you see that those cuts was planned for 2018. Quick question Steve, what year is this?

Due to The Blue Wave that the voice of The American People was heard loud and clear, Trump will not be able to cut $25 billion cut from Medicate.



I know that you don't give a damn about cutting Medicate. What a Maroon.

Sorry Ron, it will be 2019 when that blue puddle gets sworn in.

Come to think of it, it's already 2019.

YOUR WORDS: Come to think of it, it's already 2019.

STOP LYING Steve, just look at you time stamp that says:

You sound like you supported that republican $25 billion cut to Medicate? Did you support that plan Steve?

The Federal government's Fiscal Year 2019 started on October 1. Do you understand that Ron?

MY QUESTION TO YOU WAS: "You sound like you supported that republican $25 billion cut to Medicate? Did you support that plan Steve?"

What fiscal year was that proposed cut Ron? How would I support it or not support it?

MY QUESTION TO YOU WAS: "You sound like you supported that republican $25 billion cut to Medicate at the end of this year? Did you support that plan Steve?"

I don't remember caring Ron, as long as the tax cut bill passed. That was the important thing, reducing the tax burden on America's business.

YOUR REPLY: I don't remember caring Ron, as long as the tax cut bill passed. That was the important thing, reducing the tax burden on America's business.

So, you support tax breaks for the rich on the backs of the elderly, sick and the poor in this country, since you say YOU DON'T REMEMBER, is that right Steve?

No Ron that's not right. Where did you get that idea?

From your last reply: I don't remember caring Ron, as long as the tax cut bill passed. That was the important thing, reducing the tax burden on America's business.

And this is the non sequitur you came up with Ron:

"So, you support tax breaks for the rich on the backs of the elderly, sick and the poor in this country, since you say YOU DON'T REMEMBER, is that right Steve?"

Thursday, November 22nd 2018 at 7:36AM
Steve Williams
THESE ARE YOUR WORDS ARE THEY NOT: I don't remember caring Ron, as long as the tax cut bill passed. That was the important thing, reducing the tax burden on America's business.

or

Are you going to run from that too?
