3. Entitlement implies ownership.

Entitled = granted title.

You are entitled to Social Security and Medicare because you paid into the system during your working life.

TANF and Food Stamps, by contrast, are not entitlements.

We are allowing the Republicans to twist the meaning of a good word, just like we did with the word "liberal".
