  •  I never said they were in the trigger (0+ / 0-)

    If the trigger is enacted is only discretionary spending that will be cut.  That automatically excludes entitlements i.e. the big three SS, Medicaid, and Medicare.  Programs for the poor like unemployment insurance are also carved out.

    My original point was that should the trigger be enacted Medicare will not be touched.
