    I wish the powers that be (i.e. the Media and Politicians) would quit using the word "ENTITLEMENTS" to describe "INSURANCE PROGRAMS."

    Really, really irks me.  Change the narrative, don't use a Frank Luntz approved term to make these social protections sound like people feel like they deserve them.

    How about all those tax breaks the ultra wealthy have managed to get?  Now THOSE ARE TAX ENTITLEMENTS, not insurance.
