Thats it speak without even knowing the meaning...

Everything should be cut EVERYTHING! Except ss, etc.

We can start with Illegals drinking from the trough.......
Than cut building stadiums, parks, bike paths and all that other crap that the Government should not be paying for if the areas have money!
Poverty stricken areas are the exception.

If those areas want parks and stadiums let them raise the money for it from the people who will actually benefit from it....

Social Security and Medicare is the most expensive entitlement out there. It shouldn't just be cut, it should be eliminated. Let the irresponsible old people live on welfare like they deserve.

This is about the most wasteful stupid post I have ever read.

SS is not an entitlement, they paid into and EARNED that money.

Entitlement are for losers who have not earned it, those old people worked their lives away paying into it, they deserve it back and then some.

No, the lazy bums on welfare for 4 and 5 generations should be working and paying those old people for them feeding and housing the bums for all those years.

You must be a democrat, only a democrat would think with a half brain dead mind.

Irresponsible my ass! The greatest generation of our time and you call them irresponsible.

Really? So, if it turns out that you're mistaken, then it'd be accurate to say that you must be exceptionally stupid for not seeing a sensible post?

entitlement definition |Dictionary.com #3.

In regard to them "earning" that money, that's not accurate either. If they "earned" it, they'd deserve it, right? However, the Supreme Court ruled in the 70's that the government doesn't owe it. Once you give it to them, they can do whatever they like and they're not obligated to any agreement.

Further, the money they stupidly trusted the politicians with was spent on projects. They, SS fans, trusted the government and the government blew it. I don't owe them because they're naive. Explain why my taxes should increase from 17% for SS to 25% to keep stupid old people, the beneficiary of the pyramid scheme, from taking responsibility for their actions? Why should I pay for them trusting politicians-- not to mention THEY VOTED IN THOSE POLITICIANS!!!

Trusting politicians and passing an oppressive program to future generations seems like the actions of losers to me.

The "Greatest Sense of Entitlement" generation! Nearly every generation prior to the WW2 generation had a big war without their posterity owing them anything except the obligation to do the same for future generations. I don't owe you *****. My countrymen don't owe you *****. You--or the old idiots you defend-- are parasites who accepted what the previous generation passed them and then burdened the next with their lifestyle.

Make some sense next time you post to me.

Thank God! You have no idea what a government run health care system looks like. Just take a gander at Canada, England and others who have it.

Based on the inefficiencies, waste and fraud inherent in the big-government systems we have now (medicare, medicaid) - WHY in the world do you think the government is capable of running a clean, efficient, well-oil machine like universal health care?

Why make the exception for social security? If you want to cut all entitlements, cut Medicare and Social Security. But you want to spare these two. Why? Let me guess: you are a Republican who loves to suck the government tit for Medicare and SS benefits.

See, this is the hypocrisy I'm talking about. These so called fiscal conservative Republicans want to cut everyone's entitlements as long as you don't cut theirs.
