Time for a reality check.

Entitlements have to go. Universal healthcare is a farce. If not; will Washington D.C. burn like Athens?

Off the top of my head, Just some Of Obama’s “accomplishments” :

Obama has massively increased government size and power.

Obama has piled a mountain of debt on U.S.( 5 trillion $ of Obama debt and that is now that it has less “flexibility”).

Obama has let in illegals.

Obama has given more welfare and disability to more Americans than ever before (the majority of Americans get foodstamps or some government check)

Sent our jobs to China.

Put 2 radical Marxists on the Supreme Court( more to come)

hundreds of Marxists judges on federal courts

We are worse off than Europe thanks to Obama the Kenyan Marxist

And committed many more crimes.

Current entitlements (Obamacare excluded) can be sustained for all those who deserve them. It's the failure to restrict the benefits to those who have a legitimate need that's bankrupting the country.

Even though I can agree with your point, it will take a catastrophe to get people to give up their free handouts.
