Entitlement Spending

In 1996, Republican-led welfare reforms marked a revolution in the government’s approach to poverty. They changed the standard for policy success from the amount of income transferred to the poor to the number of poor who moved from welfare to economic independence. President Obama changed that though. Obama’s entitlement programs do not incentivize work and ultimately hurt our nation and American's who genuinely need our help. Republicans believe in welfare reform and helping Americans move out of poverty, not the expansion of people's dependency on government.

Democrat Family Feud

- September 30, 2013

Today, Senate Democrats Are Expected To Again Threaten A Government Shutdown By Rejecting Any Delay Or Change To ObamaCare. "The bill now moves back to the Senate, where Reid is expected to scrap the two healthcare amendments with a single vote on Monday, when the Senate returns, and return the "clean" CR, yet again, to Boehner and House Republicans. 'To be absolutely clear, the Senate will reject both the one-year delay of the Affordable Care Act and the repeal of the medical device tax,' Reid said in a statement." ... Continue Reading »

CBO Confirms: Obama’s Current Debt Path Is Unsustainable, Entitlements Must Be Reformed

- September 17, 2013

On The Current Fiscal Path, The U.S. National Debt Would Reach 100 Percent Of GDP By 2038, “More Than In Any Year Except 1945 And 1946.” “The gap between federal spending and revenues would widen steadily after 2015 under the assumptions of the extended baseline, CBO projects. By 2038, the deficit would be 6½ percent of GDP, larger than in any year between 1947 and 2008, and federal debt held by the public would reach 100 percent of GDP, more than in any year except 1945 and 1946. With such large deficits, federal debt would be growing faster than GDP, a path that would ultimately be unsustainable.” ... Continue Reading »

Another Year Of Kicking The Social Security “Can Down The Road”

- May 31, 2013

NOW: Like Last Year, Social Security Is Expected To Dry Up In 2033. “Meanwhile, the trustees kept their projections for Social Security programs unchanged. They continue to estimate that the Social Security Disability Insurance trust fund will exhaust its reserves in 2016 and the other Social Security trust fund that pays benefits for retirees will pay full benefits until 2035. If the two Social Security trust funds were combined by Congress, the trust funds would continue to pay benefits until 2033.” (Damian Paletta and Louise Radnofsky, “Medicare Trustees Dial Back Funding Concerns,” The Wall Street Journal, 5/31/13)...

Putting The Pedal To The Metal

- November 28, 2012

FLASHBACK: Obama Said "If We Want To Get Serious About Fiscal Discipline … We Will Also Have To Get Serious About Entitlement Reform." OBAMA: "Along with defense and interest on the national debt, the biggest cost drivers in our budget are entitlement programs like Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security -- all of which get more and more expensive every year. So if we want to get serious about fiscal discipline, and I do, then we're going to not only have to trim waste out of our discretionary budget -- which we've already begun -- we will also have to get serious about entitlement reform."...
