It may seem counterintuitive at first, but to "small-government" types, this is a dream come true. The increased national debt gives the perfect political cover for cutting social programs. And this reform won't be limited to traditional welfare programs for struggling parents, which in 2016 amounted to less than half a percent of the total federal budget. Instead, lawmakers will take direct aim at the social programs where the most money is spent*, and upon which the most Americans rely: Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.

* Agelbert NOTE: Said lawmakers will, of course, NOT take aim at the Military Industrial Complex WELFARE QUEEN(S) HANDOUT programs, where FAR MORE MONEY IS SPENT than on  Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.
