It's too bad that even Democrats are benefitting financially from the Trump stock market, isn't it?

you do realize medicare and medicaid are paid for don't you? if not you better wise up. you'll be so worried about what account does payouts you will miss the part where they are having us pay in more, get back less, and there is no crises except they need to steal more defense funds from the main loan company-the tax payers.

Gee, I point out that Medicare funding is non discretionary but you ask if I realize that it is paid for. President Trump has promised to leave it intact despite the massive unfunded liability pending in the future.

There is no evidence Medicare will be cut to pay for increased military spending. If you have credible evidence please present it.

Of course you supported Obamacare despite its provisions for a 22% cut in provider reimbursement rates and restrictions on doctor's medical decisions.

it is covered by payroll tax no matter if it comes out of a box with "digressionary spending" written on the outside. the people who put money in the box are having it deducted hourly from their wages.

but if you're stuck on this subject bring up another one. for this thread

According to the CBO payroll taxes cover about 35% of Medicare costs. The rest is provided by premiums and general revenue. If you have a problem with that then you have a problem with reality.
Payroll Taxes Cover About a Third of Medicare Costs | Tax Policy Center

Still waiting for evidence Trump's proposed increase in defense spending will be financed with cuts to Medicare. Oh wait, you don't have any.

because they steal it?
if 41% is set aside to pay outs and we pay more in every day, then why were we solvent under clinton and it was wiped out after the war with iraq?
yeah think about the reality, O.K.?
