  •  Also, Bob, entitlements. Same thing. Who they (6+ / 0-)

    are good for. Who are they bad for?

    Entitlements to the wealthy and to corporations. Mitt took out loans that went bad and the govt. had to pay for (through FDIC for Bain), with a loss there of $16 million to taxpayers. That is something he was entitled to get because he was already wealthy.

    Entitlements of $600 a year are too much --to him-- for a poor person to get? Money for food is too much for a poor child to have?

    But he's never said anything about the wonderful entitlements to the very wealthy Americans that enable them to pay less taxes, to get rich by taking huge risk guaranteed by the US government! I as a poor person do not have any such entitlements.
