I am so sick and tired of hearing that entitlements are what is breaking this country. The fact of the matter is when Washington isn't playing games with tax payer money we would be fine. They keep starting all these big government agancies using 9/11 as their excuse because they have all the Americans scared of terrorists, but our government is the biggest terror to effect our lives. If our government would use our tax money where it is supposed to be used there would be plenty of money to keep our Social Security, and Medicare. They are steeling our tax money, and letting the wealthy get wealthier, and covering their bet losses for taking risky chances on Wall Street. Our government is nothing but a legal way of robbing the American people of everything they have worked for, including our dreams. The reason for the incline for the request of entitlements is because our government keeps making it easier for our businesses to move to other countries, and let them sell their product here for top dollar.. I don't know what else to say, our government should be stomped out like a bad cigarette. That would end 1/2 our problems.
