This post could be subtitled "Why I don't have any faith in the GOP as led by John Boehner." On 09/15, the Congressional Budget Office released an estimate of the economic impact of eliminating the penalty for not having health insurance. The result? It would reduce the deficit by about $305 billion between now and 2025. This is not the first time the CBO has written such an opinion. Indeed, they've been fairly consistent with that message for the past 5 years. So why isn't the GOP braying this from the debate stage? According to the CBO, repealing the penalty would mean more uninsured people and less subsidies to the insurance industry. So there's the answer. Pork - the other Red meat. Continue reading

This just hit my email: The 2014 Long-Term Budget Outlook Between 2009 and 2012, the federal government recorded the largest budget deficits relative to the size of the economy since 1946, causing its debt to soar. The total amount of federal debt held by the public is now equivalent to about 74 percent of the economy’s annual output, or gross domestic product (GDP)—a higher percentage than at any point in U.S. history except a brief period around World War II and almost twice the percentage at the end of 2008. If current laws remained generally unchanged in the future, federal debt held by the public would decline slightly relative to GDP over the next few years, CBO projects. After that, however, growing budget deficits would push debt back to and above its current high level. Twenty-five years from now, in 2039, federal debt held by the public would exceed 100 percent of GDP, CBO projects. Moreover, debt would be on an upward path relative to the size of the economy, a trend that could not be sustained indefinitely. The entire report is here. But we've all seen what happens when Congress tries to cut anything. The media help the Democrats portray the fiscal conservatives as cruel heartless monsters because they want Big Bird to pay for his own cushy nest. Oh well, I guess as long as the printing presses still work, we'll be ok. RIght? ******* Related articles Gallup: Deficit fears jump National Debt Peterson/CBO Beat for Austerity Goes On!

Just so you know, while this was at the Penn State game, the ship they sank was flying the University of Michigan flag. Arguably the biggest rivalry in American college football.
