When did “entitlement” become a dirty word?
When we buy health, auto and life insurance, aren’t we “entitled” to payment when we are sick, in an accident or die?
Why is it then that after a lifetime of paying into Social Security and other employment taxes that we become blood-sucking commies in the eyes of conservative Republicans when we retire, become ill and need to draw upon our contributions?
Could it be that the “privatized” insurance and investment companies don’t make any profits on us otherwise?
