Every time they trot out these articles, the mention Medicare. It’s not Medicare, it’s MEDICAID, WIC, TANF, Section 8 housing, Social Security Disability for “mental disorders” (referred to in urban areas as “crazy money”), Obamaphones, Pell Grants and the like. Not to mention the gigantic, bloated federal and state bureaucracies that “administer” these programs (which I refer to as “employed welfare”).
Don’t pare them back, ELIMINATE them. And while you’re at it, eliminate minimum wage laws. Then you will find plenty of Americans willing to do the jobs “Americans aren’t willing to do.”
Any you’ll have a balanced budget, too.
This solution to our problems is so obvious as to be self-evident. And it has absolutely no chance of ever happening in our current political and social climate.
Do your homework.
EVERY Federal program is in trouble.
They all spend too much.
Medicare is the biggest driver of our debt. It will consume every federal dollar if not reformed.
Apparently the biggest reasons for our debt are: the Military (going back to the 1930s, and I'm not kidding), the Republicans, and the vast number of super wealthy; entertainers and athletes who wear $100K watches.
Yes folks, these people are American citizens who actually believe this crap.
