Out of Control Entitlement Spending

Losing Benefits Isn’t Prodding Unemployed Back to Work

No kidding

Where is the incentive to work when you have:

1. rising welfare benefits
2. social security
3. medicare
4. free emergency room healthcare

Entitlement spending is out of control


Entitlement spending per capita has increased as the percentage of not filing income taxes has risen

Does left secretly want another recession to extend unemployment benefits? Probably. A good bi-partisan compromise would be to raise the sales tax and enact some sort of entitlement reform, like delayed social security, increased means testing for welfare or chained-CPI benefits.
