Ok we all know Obama is on the campaign trail now. Here he is giving seniors who had medicare advantage a big break. Most will be able to keep their plans until 2015. He is looking for votes and it looks like he will be buying America this go round.
What I want to know is, with all of these favors tied to Obama care, how is he going to have the money to pay for this? Raising money was the reason his spending part would not fully come into effect till 2014. The CBO scored one thing and now Obama is shredding that. How do they think they will make up the money or that they will not come up short?

Was any of this in the original health care reform bill? (let's be real though, it really only reforms insurance, not actual care).
I thought the bill was to be carried out as written and couldn't be changed otherwise it made the whole bill null and void?

Yes, that is a good point QuinnMae. Let's not forget that he has said many things and then he has changed his mind on just about everything that he has said, so he can change his mind about this also...
