What surprises me, is that politicians are still defending Medicare. David Goldhill, CEO of the Game Show Network, author of "How American Health Care Killed My Father" and life long Democrat, writes: "So even with the government paying almost all of their bills, today's seniors pay a higher share of their income for health care than seniors did before Medicare." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/david-goldhill/a-democrats-case-for-no_b_502229.html This suggests that ending Medicare would reduce senior's health costs even for those on Medicare. It proves whenever government meddles in the markets, it raises prices for consumers. As PJ O'Rourke said, "If you think health care is expensive now, just wait until it's free".

Let's expose presidential prevarication. Earlier this year, President Barack Obama warned that Social Security checks will be delayed if Congress fails to increase the government's borrowing authority by raising the debt ceiling. However, there's an issue with this warning. According to the 2012 Social Security trustees report, assets in Social Security's trust funds totaled $2.7 trillion, and Social Security expenditures totaled $773 billion. Therefore, regardless of what Congress does about the debt limit, Social Security recipients are guaranteed their checks. Just take the money from the $2.7 trillion assets held in trust.

Which is the lie, Social Security checks must be...
