Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) says the national debt should be blamed on the "three big entitlement programs that are very popular: Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid."

The loss of government revenue from the cuts has been a larger proportional loss than what was caused by the Great Recession, according to the New York Times.

What is wrong with the man and his cohorts? Why do they continue to lie to the American people?

McConnell is not crazy.

The plan always has been to cut government income (aka taxes) and then blame Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid for the deficit. The only crazy people are the ones who do not see this for what it is.
