Why do Republicons want to kill Medicare and Social security?

If Democrats insist on not reforming it then both programs will end all by themselves.

Absolutely. They would rather have their Wall Street fat-cats get richer while Grandma dies due to rationing.

Its going bankrupt and raising tax rates on the rich doesnt bring in more tax revenue. Its things like this why people dont take liberals seriously.

If you are referring to the Ryan plan, I should inform you that it will not kill Medicare and the Social Security plan in the senate won't kill social security. These are lies created by their political enemies.
