How soon will you go bankrupt under the new GOP budget?

Here’s the bottom line:

Within 10 years of the new Republican Medicare budget taking effect, most Americans would be spending all of their Social Security income just to pay for their health care or go without coverage.

How quickly would that happen? According to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), seniors entering the program in 2030 can expect to pay $20,000 out of their own pocket for health care.

If Social Security payments continue to be adjusted at the same rate they were over the last decade, the average person on Social Security will receive a little over $21,000 that year.
