ROBERT REICH ON FACEBOOK: I keep hearing Republicans in Congress blame Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid for the growing federal deficit. Rubbish. Our new video explains the truth about the deficit that Trump and Republicans don't want you to know.
Reich said it is not social spending that is causing the deficit to soar, it is Republican tax cuts.
"If the rich and corporations paid their fair share and we rein in defense spending, America can afford what we need," he said.
