    This will play out over the next 3 years....and once Trump is fully vindicated and proved innocent (through legal loopholes and technicalities) he will be re-elected in 2020.

    Republicans Will Cut Social Security And Medicare After Tax Plan Passes, Says Marco Rubio

    Florida Senator Marco Rubio admits that the Republican tax cut plan to aid corporations and the wealthy will require cuts to Social Security and Medicare to pay for it.

    Rubio told reporters this week that in order to address the federal deficit, which will grow by at least $1 trillion if the tax plan passes, Congress will need to cut entitlement programs such as Social Security. Advocates for the elderly and the poor have warned that entitlement programs would be on the chopping block, but this is the first time a prominent Republican has backed their claims.

    Republicans Will Cut Social Security And Medicare After Tax Plan Passes, Says Marco Rubio
    Florida Senator Marco Rubio admits that the Republican tax cut plan to aid corporations and the wealthy will require cuts to Social Security and Medicare to pay for it.

    Rubio told reporters this week that in order to address the federal deficit, which will grow by at least $1 trillion if the tax plan passes, Congress will need to cut entitlement programs such as Social Security. Advocates for the elderly and the poor have warned that entitlement programs would be on the chopping block, but this is the first time a prominent Republican has backed their claims.

    “We have to do two things. We have to generate economic growth which generates revenue, while reducing spending. That will mean instituting structural changes to Social Security and Medicare for the future,” Rubio told a crowd at a Politico conference. Rubio's talk of structural change is vague, but will likely include changing the rate and age of Social Security and Medicare payouts.

    Republicans have long said that the growth generated from slashing corporate tax rates from 35 percent to 20 percent would make their tax cuts "revenue neutral," but there's no evidence they're right. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that the Senate tax plan would increase the U.S. deficit by $1.4 trillion over the next decade, and the nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation has said the plan will only boost economic growth by 0.8 percent over the next decade, leaving $1 billion in cuts unpaid for.

    So where does that money come from?

    The simple answer is Social Security and Medicare, which together comprise 38 percent of the total federal budget, second only to military spending.

    “The driver of our debt is the structure of Social Security and Medicare for future beneficiaries,” said Rubio.

    Other key Republicans have hinted that after the tax bill passes they’ll take on welfare and entitlement programs. House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) said that he wants Republicans to reduce spending on government programs in 2018, and last month President Donald Trump said that welfare reform will, "take place right after taxes, very soon, very shortly after taxes."

    Senate Finance Committee Chair Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) said Thursday that “liberal programs” for the poor were wasting Americans’ money.

    "What's coming next is all too predictable: The deficit hawks will come flying back after this bill becomes law," said Senator Ron Wyden, (D-Ore.) "Republicans are already saying 'entitlement reform' and 'welfare reform' are next up on the docket. But nobody should be fooled—that's just code for attacks on Medicaid, on Medicare, on Social Security, on anti-hunger programs."

    Republican senators say their bill helps the middle class, but most analysis of the plan shows that it increases taxes on low-income Americans, and significantly aids wealthy business owners. Cuts to welfare and safety net programs would directly impact the poorest and most vulnerable Americans.

    The Republican view on entitlement spending is reminiscent of President Ronald Reagan's, who also defunded a number of welfare programs to pay for his tax cuts.

    In order to remain solvent, changes do need to be made to entitlement programs. Both Social Security and Medicare programs are on a fiscally unsustainable path—Medicare’s hospital insurance trust fund will be exhausted by 2029 and Social Security’s trust fund will be exhausted by 2034.
