How will Congress Change Entitlement Programs and rebuild an infrastructure. 


YOUR #MEDICARE & #SOCIALSECURITY WILL END AS YOU KNOW IT! Who will tell your mother? 
#PresidentTrump has a plan to replace the #AffordableCareAct to a block grant to providing health care to low-income people on Medicaid terms set by the States. ” I found the following in MotherJones and other places on the internet it must be true. (SeeMother Jones KEVIN DRUM JAN. 19, 2017 1:39 PM)
Did you know The GOP has long sought the destruction of the Affordable Care Act and privatization of Medicare and Social Security. 
To pay for their proposed new infrastructure the Trump Team Wants to Slash your Social Security, your Medicare, your Medicaid, and your health care. 
@realdonaldtrump is ready as @POTUS to take an ax to government spending. 
Trump’s team would reduce federal spending by $10.5 trillion over 10 years.
“This is terrifying, of course, but it’s also puzzling. $10.5 trillion over ten years? That’s a trillion dollars a year. If you eliminated the domestic discretionary budget entirely, you’d only save half a trillion bucks. So how do they do it?”

The answer, of course, is that the only way to cut that kind of money is to take a meat axe to everything, including Social Security and Medicare.

Medicaid: No details. There will be a spending cap, and all mandatory spending will somehow be cut to fit.
Medicare: Increase eligibility age, add a “temporary” premium for Part A, increase premiums for Parts B and D, phase out subsidies for seniors with “significant” income, “reform” cost-sharing arrangements, transition to vouchers premium support starting in 2021.
Domestic Discretionary: Magic spending cap.
Social Security: Increase retirement age, index retirement age so it keeps going up, reduce benefits by adopting chained CPI for inflation adjustments, and “transition the payment to a flat, anti-poverty benefit focused on individuals who need it most,” whatever that means.
#trump team proposing cuts to over a hundred programs. Many small These include catfish programs, the Ex-Im bank, climate programs, Amtrak, the National Endowment for the Arts, etc. etc. 

About 80 percent of the savings come from a small number of programs:
Energy subsidies: $28 billion

Land and Water Conservation Fund: $20 billion

Various HHS/HUD jobs program: $10 billion

Davis-Bacon: $9 billion

Federal Transit Administration: $4 billion

Nine climate programs: $4 billion

Military health care: $4 billion

Slash a bunch of hippy-dippy stuff (clean energy, water conservation, transit, climate); some employment stuff (jobs programs, Davis-Bacon); and military health care spending. 
Then take a meat axe to Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and everything else, ( source Mother Jones and Heritage Foundation.)

For those that wanted change we’ll here it is. @terrybankert
