Social Security and Medic(are/aid) is more than double that number at about 45%.

Social Security is self sufficient and will be for another 20 or 30 years with not modifications.... they only reason the GOP want to tinker with it is so they can continue to rob the cookie jar!

Medicare will need modification sooner probably within the next 3 or 4 years but should not be part of a deficit reduction or budget negotiation, medicare should continue to support itself.

Medicaid will have to be put on the table in any budget negotiation but any idiot that does not understand that the future of the country is enhanced by supporting programs like CHIPs should go to the wizard and ask for a brain....
