Not only did the Republican-controlled House just pass the Senates 4 Trillion Dollar budget paving the way for at least 1.5 trillion in new debt over the next ten years, but we also find out the Social Security Administration spent more than a Trillion dollars in 2017.
If you add the cost of Social Security and HHS together, they account for more than 50% of the 3.9 trillion in total government spending in 2017.
Does this bother anyone else? Anyone still think we have a revenue problem? If you do, you're crazy. Government is out of control, and the ridiculous promises our politicians have made can never be fulfilled.
If you still plan to rely on social security, Medicare or Medicaid as you age you need to start rethinking your options. The odds on those programs surviving the next 20 years are slim, and there's no way they stay the way they are now. Benefits are going to go down, and the age to start receiving payments is going to go up.
We're all responsible for ourselves, and the more government takes from us, the less capable we are of providing for our own future. Don't let a politician tell you he's going to help you as long as you agree to give up some of your hard-earned money. He's a snake, and he's going to bite you.
Lots of great stuff on the show today including an announcement about a training I'm going to be holding soon.
