I saw something the other day that I thought was a good point. Social Security and Medicare shouldn't be lumped in with the rest of government. They're independent programs that are independently funded with the premise that people are merely getting back what they paid in (minus some social engineering).
It seems to me that we should have three sets of books for the federal government: social security, medicare/medicaid, and "the federal government".
