GWB proposed a plan to slow the growth of Social Security, and Congress rejected it while failing to produce a plan of their own. In the past 2 years, Paul Ryan has proposed a plan to slow the growth of Medicare, and Democrats not only rejected it, but they distorted the plan and used it as political fodder in the 2012 Campaign. We have reached a point where we can see Uncle Sam is approaching a complete financial collapse. We can see funds for Medicare and Social Security are being depleted. In recent days, BHO clearly said we do not have a spending problem. That may be the most stupid thing he ever said, and he has made thousands of really stupid remarks.

We need to look at other money sucking programs other then Social Security and Medicare, this is a government scare tactic, If we drop Medicade, which no one wants to talk about, and add it's money to Medicare we could pay for that program. Social Security has income intended just for it, welfare has none, the welfare program gets bigger and bigger every day. Drop welfare and Medicade make those people re qualify only legal Americans and truly needy people and most of our problem would be fixed. Stop sending money to country's that hate us and start producing our own energy resources, that would put lots of people back to work. Close government departments that are duplicates of each other and departments that have proven to be dormant .

Okay, it’s official. According to the Treasury Department, the U.S. debt jumped to $16.1 trillion in 2012 from $14.8 trillion in 2011. That’s a $1.3 trillion deficit for the last year. Remarkable. During President Obama’s first term, the federal debt rose by roughly $6 trillion.
 
Now, if they are bold, House Republicans will take advantage of these dismal numbers. Bold means bold spending cuts, as in cut spending like there’s no tomorrow. Bold means implementing the $1.2 trillion spending sequester. Bold means an absolute rock-solid commitment to spending cuts. A new Rasmussen survey shows that 62 percent of Americans favor across-the-board...
