Default We are screwed

Stories about how our politicians are screwing us. Feel free to post some and or comment.






On the subject of Money the big dogs want for defense and are mentioning paying for with cuts...SS and Medicare have been mentioned in leaks which are like trial balloons.
If medicare and social security are financed by payroll but we have a budgetary amount that is tagged for these programs also, Social Security should not get cut nor medicare. but I will bet not only will they get cut but the payroll amount will increase.

So while congress owes us money they stole, they are now going to make us pay back money THEY borrowed.

... "Medicare is funded primarily from three sources: general revenues (41%), payroll taxes (38%), and beneficiary premiums (13%) (Figure 6). Part A is financed primarily through a 2.9% tax on earnings paid by employers and employees (1.45% each) (accounting for 87% of Part A revenue).Jul 24, 20"

Medicare and SS funding are non-discretionary spending, they get what they need before all other programs including defense. Trump has repeatedly stated he will not change Medicare or SS. Of course that doesn't account for the super secret memo with the hidden plot to push grandma off the cliff or some other nonsense.

The comment is completely detached from the facts. You do understand non discretionary spending is guaranteed funding, don't you? You do understand Medicare and SS funding is non discretionary, don't you?

You do understand there is no evidence whatsoever of increased defense spending being funded by cuts to Medicare and SS.

Over $3 trillion in equity value since the election. It took him eight years but finally some can say that Obama did a good job.
