    Medicare up to 489 billion from 451 billion, about 8%
    Medicaid up 8% 245 to 264, with another 25 added by Obama
    Social Security up 3% 756 to 779

    so, of 3.8 trillion, 1.557 trillion for soc sec, medicare, medicaid, this was the amount of the entire fed budget ten years ago

    defense 530 to 548
    693 to 708 with Iraq and Afghanistan

    so 2.265 trillion defense, soc sec, medicare, medicaid

    I recommend adding more big government programs so America will go bankrupt even quicker.

    fastest growing item is one of the most productive government programs ever - interest

    budgeted at just 250 billion, but doubles in 3 years to 510 billion due to higher expected rates, this is why administration's attempted spin is "balanced excluding interest", this is net by the way, so it adds back interest received by the gov't

    medicare grows over 10% per year in the future, to 629 billion in 2014

    this is a disgrace, easy to blame liberal pols, but I don't see Republicans talking about medicare cuts

    I broke down and cried. If I think about my Grandson I may have a mental health break down.
