Does the United States have $128 trillion in unfunded liabilities?

The US Debt and unfunded liabilities is derived from the Web site, usdebtclock.org, which lists a figure of just over $126 trillion in unfunded liabilities for three programs — Social Security, Medicare and the Medicare prescription drug program.
The biggest share of the total — more than $87 trillion — belongs to the Medicare program.
The source apparently is the Federal Reserve.
