Tuesday Roundup: Final revision to 3Q GDP in: 2.2%, Lobbyists have record year, and Reid slips supermajority requirement into Medicare cost cutting panel…
Update: Darth Vadar just rang the opening bell, I kid you not. LucasFilm is there, I see Bobba Fett!
We started at 3.5%, and now at third and final revision we are down to 2.2% on 3Q GDP. I am still calling for a double dip, because yes the Obamanomic policies ARE that bad.
In other news as MiM has predicted lo these many months, the Reid Amendment has put a supermajority requirement on overriding the iMAB panel decisions. Harry actually asked ‘cant we all get along after this’ on the floor this morning after they passed round 2 of their partisan vote to GUT MEDICARE. ugh what a tool. He is feathering his next for his LOBBYING job post election defeat.
LOBBYISTS had their BEST YEAR EVAH under Obama’s HOPEY CHANGEY NEW politics, HA!
Some folks still think the Medicare cuts will not happen, THEY WILL. This Supermajority rule is how it will be accomplished. No calls to Congress will make an impact when a Supermajority is required to overturn iMAB rulings. Like an HMO with no right of appeal, that is what they are giving our Seniors (and by extension through the exchanges which will follow these roolz, we are ALL getting this shaft)
This is the Orszagist dream panel where non practicing physicians like the loons who just announced the mammogram revisions will GUT MEDICARE. IT WILL HAPPEN. TELL EVERY SENIOR YOU KNOW.
SS is next. Gird your savings GEN X, they are coming for us.
