So Now What’s Going On At The CBO? (Updated)

15 May

Update: 2 More E-Mails

I’ve been monitoring the activity at the CBO (Congressional Budget Office) for a little over two years now.  It’s a great way to know what legislation is coming down the pike in Congress.  I highly recommend that you sign up for their e-mail list.

CBO - 01

Yesterday was a banner day.  I received four six different e-mails from the CBO with a total of twenty-four thirty-two different documents (four twelve were duplicates).  I’ve never received that many documents from the CBO let alone four six different e-mails.  Were we not buried in an avalanche of Obama scandals, I would likely ignore the avalanche of e-mails.  But, in the current environment, it got my attention.

A couple of items stood out (links are below):

  • The Budget Baseline
  • The Supplemental Security Income
  • Medicare Baseline
  • Medicaid Baseline

Scariest is the Budget Baseline which shows that by the 2023, our gross Federal Debt will be over $25,000,000,000,000… …another $9 Trillion in Federal Debt.  This cannot be allowed to happen!

It’s been said that “Disability” is the fastest growing employment sector under the Obama administration.  This expenditure stays static at about a $1 Trillion per year over the next 10 years.  Yes, we will be spending $10 Trillion of our General Tax Revenues to help ‘Disabled’ people… …some who need it… …and (I suspect) most like the ones I saw dancing and smoking pot in Illinois a few months ago.

For Medicare, the next 10 years sees mandatory outlays doubling from $549 Billion to $1062 Billion ($1.062 Trillion) per year.  Yes, I know you’ve paid for Medicare; so have I.  But, have you paid into Medicare the same amount that you’ve taken out?!?  For both SSOAI and Medicare, receivers should first be provided with the balance of their account… …the amount they paid in less expenses.

And finally, for Medicaid, the next 10 years sees outlays double from $251 Billion to $554 Billion per year.  The DSH (Disproportionate Share Hospital) amount goes from $10 Billion to $13 Billion… …you know that horrible thing where people go to hospitals when they don’t have insurance and the government has to pay for them so we need to have the government fix the $10 Billion problem by taking over the entire healthcare system to the tune of $2 Trillion… …that DSH.

BOY! That’s a big document dump on the same day the IRS, Benghazi, Kermit Gosnell, Fast and Furious, and AP scandals hit a fever pitch.  I’m glad I’m not a conspiracy theorist, or the black helicopters would be circling…

SQUIRREL!!
