Health Entitlements & the Deficit

By Nancy Chockley PhD

Congress is poised to pass a budget plan that will raise funding levels for the next two years. While these changes are paid for, the plan does not include structural changes to the health entitlement programs that are a leading driver of our budget deficits and mounting debt.

The GOP presidential candidates are likely to discuss a variety of proposals for structural reforms to these programs during tonight’s debate.

As a primer to this important conversation, this chart story presents essential facts about spending for Medicare, Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act and the impact of these programs on the deficit.

  1. Why investors should hope a Democrat is the next president?

    One of the best political outcomes for the stock market would be for a Democrat to win the presidential election next year while Congress remains in Republican control.
