Entitlements are bankrupting Massachusetts.
But I think Massachusetts is a good argument to what happens when you mandate something to millions of people who have no interest in taking care of themselves.
The do nothings either ignore it and you have to chase them down, which is a huge cost, or they wiggle their way onto it with the least cost to themselves.
thereby effectively becoming another social program that they stay on forever, unless...
you chase them down, therby creating huge cost. It's a merry go round to them.
like welfare, public housing, etc. etc.
