Thanks for the heads up. You're right on. Problem is, somebody called them "entitlements," and that's exactly how those uninitiated to the ways of sweat see them.
Hence the easy way out - they scour the servicemembers' and veterans' benefits for cuts, and never will be serious about cutting the social programs, and their nefarious (actually, vicious) overseers:
Obama thinks he can play the medicare-and-SSA-cutting card, and still raise taxes. I seriously hope Boehner isn't on board with that.
Let's keep firing politicians. Spoiled punks.
