Sheesh Dope, a couple of (minor) tweaks to SS, cut back on payments to Doctors and hospitals (they won't mind), cut some of the fraud, problem solved.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
So if SS and medicare aren't causing the deficit, what is? Is it the wars which cost $100bil/yr or the tax cuts on the top rate which cost $70bil/yr? Or is it both? Lets see thats $170bil/yr. What's the deficit again?

PS 'problem solved' was funny
