Great way to do it, exempt entitlements (including Medicaid, Social Security, Food Stamps, TANF, Section 8 housing) but cause tremendous harm to a Constitutional enterprise - the military.
Perhaps the Republican party deserves the internal split that it is about to endure. Good thing it is embracing amnesty for illegals. Now, there's something we can afford. As it alienates the military permanently, it will need new constituencies. Somehow though, I think the illegals will still vote for Democrats.
Out of curiosity, why is this viewed as the GOPs fault? Not being sarcastic.
Social Security is not an Entitlement. It is a paid-into system. It is just that not enough people are working today to keep it solvent in the future.
It is law and until it is changed, we are stuck with it, but I also can eat because of it though I’m still working at 68, but only parttime because there isn’t enough money to fund me fulltime.
