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.
