Let's re-define "entitlements"

Social Security, Medicare, and Unemployment are INSURANCE programs and while we are "entitled" to them, it's because we paid into them.

As I watched the American Soldiers forcing the local villagers to file past the heaps of dead Concentration Camp prisoners it gave me an uncomfortable feeling different than that I'd felt on the other hundred times I'd seen such footage. The local townspeople acted shocked and horrified with what they

DEMOCRATIC SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES--listen to the polls and listen to the most helpless among us!

The American people know what it is to slice the safety net that protects them. They vote overwhelmingly to support Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and raise taxes on the richest Americans, as well as cut taxes to support the military.

Ben Nelson and Blue Dogs -- this is aimed at you!

Reject the Republican plan to cut the safety net, as 70+ percent of Americans do. Have national health care plan, if this is what Americans want (and we do!) to reduce costs in the immediate and long run.
