Entitlements

This year, more than two-thirds of all federal spending will go toward automatic, mandatory programs and interest payments that are non-negotiable in the federal budget.

Three of these programs—Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security—are on a path to bankruptcy and will consume a greater share of the federal budget with each passing year.

Without reform, these automatic spending programs—the main drivers of runaway federal debt—represent the greatest threat to the economic future of our country.

Something must be done now.

There are many places to start. For instance, auditors identified $125 billion in improper overpayments within entitlement programs in 2014 alone. Congress must eliminate this waste.

But that’s just a start. Politicians must find other places to act, and fast. Failure to do so will hamstring the economy—and harm the American people—for generations to come.
