4. Entitlement is correct. "Democrat politician" is incorrect. So perfect fail achieved.

6. Entitlement is INCORRECT

These are benefits that were EARNED... Every paycheck I see how much I contributed to both medicare and social security.. When I turn 65 I am getting something that I earned over the years.. it would help a great deal in the battle of the Republicans if we did not use their words..
