The House Fiscal Year 2019 Budget and Its Effect on Seniors

Leave a comment

 

 

The House Budget Resolution for Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 would make cuts to the Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security programs and repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA), actions which would be harmful to millions of Americans.

The House Budget Resolution for FY 2019, introduced by House Budget Committee Chairman Steve Womack (R-AR), was approved by the House of Representatives Budget Committee on June 21, 2018.  This budget proposes drastic cuts in federal spending for programs of importance to most low- and middle-income Americans while protecting nearly $2 trillion in tax cuts, which mainly benefit the very wealthy and large profitable corporations and dramatically increase our deficits and debt.  This paper summarizes some of the key proposals in the House Republican FY 2019 budget resolution that would affect seniors and people with disabilities who rely on Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.

Medicare

The budget resolution proposes $537 billion in cuts to Medicare which would be achieved by ending traditional Medicare and increasing health care costs for beneficiaries.  Chairman Womack’s plan assumes savings for the federal government by privatizing Medicare and shifting costs to Medicare beneficiaries.

Privatizing Medicare with Vouchers/Premium Support Payments

Under premium support, when people become eligible for Medicare they would not enroll in the current traditional Medicare program which provides guaranteed benefits.  Rather they would receive a voucher, also referred to as a premium support payment, to be used to purchase private health insurance or traditional Medicare through a Medicare Exchange.  The amount of the voucher would be determined each year when private health insurance plans and traditional Medicare participate in a competitive bidding process.  Seniors choosing a plan costing more than the average amount determined through competitive bidding would be required to pay the difference between the voucher and the plan’s premium.  In some geographic areas, traditional Medicare could be more expensive.  This would make it harder for seniors, particularly lower-income beneficiaries, to choose their own doctors if their only affordable options are private plans that have limited provider networks.  Wealthier Medicare beneficiaries would be required to pay a greater share of their premiums than lower-income seniors.

800000 Non Essential Employees?

This was just too good~~

 By Anna Von Reitz

If they are “non-essential” why are we paying for their services?

Just  sayin’.

If we don’t need them….what are they doing on our payroll?

Also bear in mind that we have the better part of a million “non-essential” employees on our payroll at the same time that those responsible for this situation are poor-mouthing about their “National Debt”?

Well, if they have an insurmountable National Debt and 800,000 employees we don’t really need, the answer to the problem seems obvious enough to me as an Employer.

First, make the Pink Slips permanent.

Second, deport the two million or so Bar Attorneys, confiscate their ill-gotten assets, give their homes and retirement accounts to the 800,000 unemployed federal workers, use the rest of the gross largess to pay down the “National Debt” and everyone (except the Bar Attorneys) will go home happy.

Very happy.

Talking about humanitarian crisis and borders and forced immigration — what will the Lord Mayor and the Queen do with two million or so unemployed British Merchant Marine Shipping Clerks when they all come home to roost?

You think Europe has trouble with Muslims? And we have trouble with Mexicans and Hondurans? Just think about two million angry disinherited lawyers hitting the streets and unemployment lines in London?

Makes me smile.

Tune in tomorrow for “As the World Turns (and I Vomit)”.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“What difference does an increase in the National Debt make? We owe it to ourselves.” our typical congress-critter has declared. Such a paraphrased statement, reflecting on the exoskeleton structure of the Federal Reserve, ignores the inner historic mechanisms of Rothschild banking, the intense subterfuge and arm-twisting of the Fed’s creation, and the proven destructive forces inherent but hidden therein. 1

The medieval Rothschild Banks established a line of credit for the King provided the King issued a written promise to pay gold, with interest, to the bank at a time in the future. The book-entry Rothschild credit was used to pay for obligations incurred by the king and the credit continued to be circulated in the kingdom between merchants. The bankers sold the king’s interest bearing promise of gold to investors. The promise was renewed on its maturing date and was perpetually rolled-over. 2

VOILA !!! The king made the suppliers of services happy with Rothschild credit; the bankers had the gold; the public had a promise that the king would eventually pay them in gold—which would never happen. 3 Everything went smoothly as long as the bank could sell the promise and the people did not demand the gold. 4 As Benjamin Ginsburg has lamented in FATAL EMBRACE; (bankers) AND THE STATE 5, eventually the schemes, which stole the wealth from the people, would come to a catastrophic climax. 6 More

Monopoly Money Ship Runs Aground in Greece

4 Comments

Opinion new-logo25By W. R. McAfee, Sr. ______________________________________________ Italy, Ireland, Spain, Portugal are marked —one at a time—for financial mop-ups like Greece ; the idea being they and the world could watch in ‘horror’ while The City siphons the remainder of their financial lives,

bank accounts, savings; this without smugness  from the U.S. whose taxes fall, oh, about a trillion short of interest payments annually on the $18 trillion these financial jackals have run up with America’s corrupt politicians and ‘officials’.

Only difference in U.S. and Greece is the scale.

Curiously, communist Russia (alleged fall was crafted) was not among the marked. Not so curious when a brief scan of history reveals The City’s bankers bankrolled communism through their Bolshevik takeover of the Russian revolution at a cost of some 60 million mostly white Russian Christian lives.

Hear about that in your history classes?

I didn’t either.

Then Gore invented the Internet.

The bankers slip front men into key financial positions in financially teetering countries.

Read somewhere Greece’s finance minister resigned. Didn’t Goldman Sachs work a profit deal with him to spiff up his books?

Wonder if Goldman has any advisors in the White House ?

Foreclosure processes on nations’ resources (collateral for the bankers) kick-in when countries can’t pay interest on tipping-point loans that banks steered them to by shoveling generous paper “loans” at corrupt government officials and politicians. When a nation tips, its resources are commandeered or sold off to front companies and corporations controlled by the same bankers that lent them the money. They’re already pick at Greece’s bones. It’s an age-old high stakes financial scam begun by a small handful of banking family patriarchs several centuries ago that’s updated each century as technologies enable new methods of theft.

The current crop of not-so-bright but enormously greedy and corrupt politicians and government officials around the globe who drank deeply from central bank troughs, and who counted on not being around (or alive) when it came time to pay their financial fiddlers, suddenly found themselves in the banker’s noose while they were still in office and around and there was nowhere for these bilge rats to run—unintended justice, perhaps, as the financial chaos begins to unfold. Investors and speculators (not connected to The City’s  cabal) holding financial instruments in marked countries have haircuts coming.

But, there’s this troubling aspect of Iceland who told these monopoly money masters—who’re use to running around the globe with handfuls of fiat cash after deliberately indebting nations through corrupt government officials and politicians; buying up gold, silver (real value, real money) and other hard assets (prime land)—what they could do with their debt; even threw a few in prison.

And now comes these pesky Greeks with their 2650 year old drachma who’ve said “no mas. . . we’ll try it without your foot on our necks.”.

Financial speak this all you want, but in the end it’s about control of ourselves, or the bankers controlling us. Which is why the founders drew the road map for America’s financial journey the way they did; that congress was the only body authorized by the Constitution to coin [print] the nation’s currency.

For a reason.

They’d observed these thieves at work in Europe and England and had them foremost in mind as they wrote the Constitution—still valid and the greatest governing document ever written regardless of pimp blather fed the public by the banker-owned media and sycophants in Washington. Obama—like B-II, Clinton, B-I, the peanut farmer, et al—are simply vetted front-man for these bankers’ who’ve kept their global financial agenda afloat in America for the last century; assassinating three presidents (Kennedy, Garfield, Lincoln) and a Congressman (McFadden) along the way who opposed a central bank by these bankers.

They also attempted to assassinate a sitting President (Andrew Jackson) who threw the central bank out of America during the early 1830’s, and an ex-president who was running for the office again (T. Roosevelt) on an in dependent ticket in the early 1900’s, and who was on record as saying “. . . America should handle its own money and financial affairs.”

Congressman Louis T. McFadden , the most knowledgeable congressman about the central bank in Washington last century, brought formal charges against the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Bank system, The Comptroller of the Currency, and the Secretary of United States Treasury on May 23, 1933, for criminal acts that included conspiracy, fraud, unlawful conversion, and treason.

The bankers began trying to assassinate McFadden. The first attempt came when two shots were fired at him from ambush when he stepped from a cab in front of a Capital hotel. Both missed. Then he was poisoned after eating food at a political banquet in Washington. A physician friend at the banquet saved his life. Finally, , on Oct. 3, 1936, he “. . .died suddenly of heart after a ‘dose’ of ‘intestinal flu.’”

It was Woodrow Wilson and a handful of corrupt congressmen, though, who doomed America financially when they sold their souls and country to these financial demons in 1913 and allowed them a 100-year charter to set up a central bank (The Fed) to print America’s money for the cost of paper, ink and press time; then sell it to the nation at face value and perpetual interest; this, in Wilson’s case, in exchange for the bankers financing his run for—and guaranteeing—him the presidency.

America’s government-controlled resources were put up as collateral for these loans. Ft. Knox is empty. Gold transfers to England for “debt” payments in the billions floated by the bankers’ European central banks back through America’s Fed for payment in gold, began the first part of last century once the Fed was established.

Variations of the central bank scam ‘model’ have been duplicated worldwide by the bankers in some 150 other nations; all “legitimized” by government officials and politicians and inside confederates; nations that now find themselves in similar financial boats hemorrhaging red ink.

You go, Iceland.

God speed, Greece

Buy your own printing presses, print your own money, put it in your independent treasuries, keep it under lock and key, turn away foreign bankers, and use the fruits of your own labors like God intended.

The government incurs a trillion dollar increase in the National Debt annually to spend money it does not have so congress-critters can fund pork barrel projects back home and get reelected. Is theft from the public by inflation for the “freebies” the end of the scam?? Not hardly.

06b0e53c-d69d-11e3-bfaa-12313d1c3a13-mediumFor congress to get the book entry money created on the government’s bank account, the Treasury Department must send a Treasury security to the FRBNY. Then the FR will honor checks on the account and the fiat money is added to the economic system (inflation occurs).

But what happens to the security received by the FRBNY (as collateral for a loan) ?? Why, the bank auctions it off to the Primary Dealers and pretends it has been done by the Treasury Department. The funds go to the FRBNY.

Dear congress-critter,

TRUTHOUT website documents the control Goldman Sachs has acquired over European nations by financial indebtedness using various scams resulting in imposed austerity: Infiltration of the U.S. government is also presented. Austerity  measures in the U.S. are already being discussed.
A link to an article identifying the IMF and the World Bank (operatives of Wall Street) as the largest sources of world poverty should be of interest. The IMF and World Bank rely upon the CIA to impose their exploitation upon indigenous citizens. Ref. KILLING HOPE by William Blum; CONFESSION OF an      ECONOMIC HIT MAN by John Perkins.

That the CIA is the operating arm of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) should be obvious. The     government has no financial gain from the above mentioned exploitation.  Numerous nefarious acts of the CIA operating against the best interests of  the U.S. including war-mongering and assassination have been alleged. The U.S. military is used to squelch any resistance. More
