"Most of the nation’s political leaders show little concern or even awareness that the federal government’s net financial position has eroded rapidly in this century. They know about mounting public debt because regular budget reports highlight it and as do media outlets. Less well-known or understood is the growth of the government’s unfunded liabilities, which, if anything, should be more alarming..."Thus, with Social Security and Medicare included in the assessment, the federal government’s unfunded liabilities in 2021 are $93.1 trillion, or nearly 400 percent of annual GDP.
That compares with $11.1 trillion as calculated in the 2001 Treasury report, which was 105 percent of GDP... New procedures are needed to help policymakers steer a more sustainable course. It would help if more of them fully grasped the scale of the challenge."President George W. Bush pursues Social Security reform, May 2, 2001https://www.politico.com/story/2018/05/02/president-george-w-bush-pursues-social-security-reform-may-2-2001-559632
"The recently elected president told the group to follow six guiding principles: '(1) modernization must not change Social Security benefits for retirees or near-retirees; (2) the entire Social Security surplus must be dedicated only to Social Security; (3) Social Security payroll taxes must not be increased; (4) the government must not invest Social Security funds in the stock market; (5) modernization must preserve Social Security’s disability and survivors insurance programs; and (6) modernization must include individually controlled, voluntary personal retirement accounts, which will augment Social Security.'"President Trump insists both SS and Medicare will be fully financed by returning to our Energy Independence, thus fueling GROWTH in our economy. It is not a sin to know how to manage money.Personally, I have a different solution born out of human experience:
The Health Department usurps the greater half of our entire congressional budget and has NEVER produced one cure for disease since its inception. It is the biggest gravy-train for incompetent bureaucrats to slurp from.
Let our nation go bankrupt first, if the need be, to eliminate some 600+ unconstitutional USELESS government bureaucracies of unbridled arrogance. PRIVATIZE THEM, make Congress and the Courts consult them on an as-needed bases, least we all perish under the medicine of the 4th Reich. Under socialized medicine, it is cheaper to kill us than cure us. We already have laws promoting abortion, doctor assisted suicide, and euthanasia by government proxy.
Recall House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on 2,700 pages of Obamacare: "pass the bill first, then we can find out what is in it"? Heads up, all Yee Socialist Idiots.
Instead, let us shop across all 50 state borders for any health insurance policy we deem applicable to our needs.
Start with overthrowing the 1945 McCarran-Ferguson Act that redefined "insurance" as a "non-profit industry" to a "for profit industry" misapplying the purpose of the Interstate Commerce Clause's original purpose to foment commerce and prosperity, switched by the Democrats FDR and Truman to the opposite, quarantining citizens state by state, under national and state regulation. This is a deliberate economic segregation.
Let us open non-tax Health Savings Accounts to pay for most medical needs out of pocket and purchase low-cost catastrophic health insurance, thus returning price and quality control of the medical market to the consumer, not government or the insurance industry.
Our security is our freedom to choose, not a government nanny-state under the 4th Reich.
"The government does not belong in the bedroom," quote Senator Barry Goldwater.
Let me add: The government does not belong in the medicine cabinet. The government does not belong in the refrigerator. God help the Twinkie Police if they cross the threshold of my kitchen's doorstep.
