Is this supposed to be a joke?
43% (and exponentially increasing with population) of our debt in America is caused by socialistic entitlement programs
such as Medicare and Social Security.
I mean, thats just fact.
NO, this is false.
Budget for 2011
$2.627 trillion (estimated) 
Total expenditures $3.729 trillion
There is a 1.101 trillion dollar deficit.
So, lets say we look at the numbers:
$553.0 billion (+0.7%) - Department of Defense
$118.0 billion (-26.0%) - Overseas Contingency Operations
Right there, you have 671 Billion. That is more than half of the deficit. All that military entitlement spending.
Medicare and Medicaid combined is like 754 Billion.
So, like most Rebuplicans, you want to keep the army and spend more money on it, but strip people of already inadequate health care.
SSI brings in $925 billion - Social Security and other payroll tax
It spends $761 billion
Looks to be like SSI pays for itself pretty damn well. Nothing socialist there.
The simplest thing to do, to pay for the whole thing is redistribute some wealth from the %1. Yes, raise taxes of rich people, since they are not creating an goddamned job and are just bloodsuckers, capitalist leeches.
