Put in my opinion, which I respect.

Somewhere along the way, at some unknown point in time, our political leaders perhaps supported by many in the press have vilified the word “entitlement.” They have lumped, grouped, placed or any other term you may like any payment by the government to any person.

This of course when examined by anyone who has an IQ that makes it to double digits is an unfair use of all of the non-entitlement programs. When I think of entitlement programs I think of the ones that the recipients are indeed entitled to. In other words programs that people or businesses have paid into themselves. Programs like Social Security, Medicare, unemployment compensation, workers compensation to name a few.
