And this directly leads to my point. The government is going to print or borrow rather than receive funds from the people expecting to receive a benefit. This Administration is decoupling how we pay for those two programs. Can means testing be far behind? Once that happens we have two more welfare programs.SS and Medicare aren't long term obligations for the govt? They are an expense and cutting their funding means those IOU's have to be repaid with borrowed or printed dollars.
Then maybe we can reform them out of existence.
