After instituting a $1.5 trillion tax cut and signing off on a $675 billion budget for the Department of Defense, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday that the only way to lower the record-high federal deficit would be to cut entitlement programs like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.
Medicare and social security are NOT entitlement programs. Medicaid is partially funded by Medicare. These programs are separately funded by earned wages and self-employment. If anything, we should increase the FICA and Medicare tax by .5% to ensure the funds continuity for the next 100 years.
You see. Republicans borrowed from Social Security to fund unpaid for wars etc. They want to cut these programs so they don't have to pay it back.
And once again they are pushing a ****over of average Americans to benefit rich Americans.
In 2016, Clinton's underlying (and sometimes overlying) message was something like this: Trump is awful and you will never vote for him. And I am the only other person running for president.
