Rand is a bit wrong on entitlement spending

If you remove the entitlements that are paid for, social security and medicare, the Defense budget takes up 2 thirds of the entire US budget.

Not entirely wrong in his statement, but a bit misleading.

Dipping into social security to prop up the fat and unaudited defense budget would not be a good idea.
