Obama Administration Pays $245 Billion for Doctors Votes……

Democrats and the Obama administration argue that the $245 billion included for doctors doesn’t have to be counted in the total cost of the bill because they decided it doesn’t have to be paid for.

This is what $245 Billion pay-off to Doctors will get you....

This is what $245 Billion pay-off to Doctors will get you....

Right, well I am deciding that my $30,000 car does not need to be paid for, that my $60,000+ in student loans do not need to be paid for or any other debt I rack up needs to be paid for-well, because decided it does not need to be paid for. Now, how many of you are rolling your eyes at this? I thought so, therefore how about we not let the thieves in Washington and in the White House get away with not paying for a $245 Billion dollar vote by paying off doctors?!?!?!?!?!

You see…….THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GIVE A JOB TO AN INEXPERIENCED AND UNQUALIFIED INDIVIDUAL! “Their only-in-Washington reasoning is that they already decided to exempt it from congressional “pay-as-you-go” rules that require new programs to be paid for. In other words, it doesn’t have to be paid for because they decided it doesn’t have to be paid for.”

WASHINGTON — House Democrats want to give doctors a $245 billion sweetener that helps ensure their critical support for a health care overhaul bill. Next up: Trying to explain how they could do it without breaking President Barack Obama’s promise that health legislation won’t increase the federal deficit.

Obama reiterated the pledge in a “CBS Evening News” interview Tuesday, saying: “It’s got to be deficit neutral. It can’t add to our deficits.”

So what of the Congressional Budget Office’s conclusion that the House bill does add to the deficit?

Democrats and the Obama administration argue that the $245 billion included for doctors — the approximate 10-year cost of adjusting Medicare reimbursement rates so physicians don’t face big annual pay cuts — does not have to be counted in the overall cost of the health care bill.

Their only-in-Washington reasoning is that they already decided to exempt it from congressional “pay-as-you-go” rules that require new programs to be paid for. In other words, it doesn’t have to be paid for because they decided it doesn’t have to be paid for.
