"entitlements"? - stupid dems parroting republican propaganda even though they won. [View all]

SS & medicare are not entitlements.

they are earned benefits.

People have spent their entire working careers paying into various funding mechanisms to provide SS and medicare, either through general taxes or specifically targeted payroll deductions. Yet here are the stupid dems acting and talking like the worst of the republicans by using the same republican negative framing.

negotiating using the enemy's talking points is useless. Better to wait til January 1 and set up entirely new framework using correct language
