Social Security and Medicare should not be in the budget! They are paid in advance by the recipients! And I should twice as much as I am making now.Neither are very likely to happen.SS has never been outside of the budget; there has never been a lock box. The only way to make such would the to significantly increase taxes or cut benefits to start building up such deposits.Medicare is insurance. It is not pre-paid medical care. If you want it to be pre-paid medical care, then the cost would need to significantly increase as most people consume more care than what they pay in.
