Until we figure out how to get the jobs back from overseas this problem with entitlements will continue to grow. People still need to provide for their families and the government has become the only reliable game in town. The longer this goes on the more dependent people become and the harder it will be to get people off the government dime. People will not change till they are forced; it will take pain and suffering to make people change and politician’s loose votes when people hurt. So don’t expect any change any time soon, till we all rich and poor are forced to honestly change this mess we have created.
