    Default Washington Post: Romneys right: Obamacare cuts Medicare by $716 billion. Heres how.

    "The Romney campaign has gone on the offense on Medicare, charging that the Affordable Care Act cuts $716 billion from the entitlement program.
    That $716 billion figure is one youll probably be hearing a lot about during this election cycle. Its worth understanding where it comes from and what the spending reductions mean for the Medicare program.
    First, where it comes from. On July 24, the Congressional Budget Office sent a letter to House Speaker John Boehner, detailing the budget impact of repealing the Affordable Care Act. If Congress overturned the law, spending for Medicare would increase by an estimated $716 billion overthat 20132022 period.
    As to how the Affordable Care Act actually gets to $716 billion in Medicare savings, thats a bit more complicated.John McDonough did the best job explaining it in his 2011 book, Inside National Health Reform. There, he looked at all the various Medicare cuts Democrats made to pay for the Affordable Care Act.
    The majority of the cuts, as you can see in this chart below, come from reductions in how much Medicare reimburses hospitals and private health insurance companies."

    CVD, admit it. You're really a fan of Obama, huh.

    He gives you so much to talk about.

    I thought this was more about Medicare/Obamacare than the election. Mods pls merge the thread.

    At this point, I think anything that has a direct impact on the election is to go in to the stickied thread. Basically, my guess is if it mentions Romney, Biden, Obama or Ryan, put it there

    Also don't forget, if the thread has the words Incompetent windbag asshole, that should go in the election thread as well.

    The ACA cuts 700 billion by eliminating overpayments to private health companies in Medicare Advantage which is to produce better efficiency and to reduce fraud and abuse.... it does not affect people's benefits. I'm assuming RR are arguing this point because they believe the old system of overpaying insurers and putting inefficiency back into the program is the way to go.
