Everything you need to know in one phrase...

...about the demonization of entitlements. It's a bit old, but I just came across it and it still fits. From the Huffington Post:
Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security that are seen by most budget experts as long-term contributors to the nation's spiraling debt. The three programs will make up more than 40 percent of federal spending next year. If left unchecked, they will grow to more than 60 percent of federal spending by 2035, when baby boomers will be at least 70.
"Left unchecked?" "Left unchecked?" What are they, infectious diseases? A flea infestation? A toxic chemical spill? What the hell?
