  •  the word doesn't matter (0+ / 0-)

    whatever word you choose, the Republicans will slime it up and wipe it all over you.

    Where do you think the word "entitlements" came from?  Republicans didn't make it up.  It was coined to capture the essence of these programs, that they provide what their beneficiaries are owed.

    So you change it to "earned benefits" and the Republicans will twist that around to make it sound scummy.  And they'll use the same exact imagery.
