I’m tired of seeing our leaders in Congress saying the big problem to our national debt is Social Security and Medicare and that this is an entitlement. If you look at your paycheck, these programs are 100 percent funded by FICA and are zero is on the national debt. It’s time to raise taxes on millionaires and billionaires. The problem with our debt is 58 percent of the federal budget is defense and out of the defense budget 52 percent is benefits (entitlements). Maybe they need to cut entitlements out of the defense budget.

Were her parents members of the Communist Party?
