2011 Medicare Trustee's Report

According to this, the unfunded liabilities for Medicare over the next 75 years are only 3.0 trillion for HI (Part A), and Parts B and D have no unfunded liabilities because they are covered by general revenue.

Anyways for a fair comparison, this is how it reads:
Unfunded liability over 75 years as of 2011:
Part A - 3.0 trillion
Part B - 13.9 trillion
Part D - 7.5 trillion

For parts B and D, those numbers are the amounts that are covered by general revenue.
