    Two of those are, indeed, entitlements, as the baby boomers who have paid into them for years are now starting to retire, and are entitled to the money they've put in. Medicaid is another problem, as it is a part of the trillion dollar means tested welfare that Congress passed.

    Still, doesn't mention Obama, and the three programs pre date his presidency by quite a few years.



    Now, finally, we read about a program actually supported and passed by the Obama Administration.

    and if we look at what is actually driving the increased spending lumped together under "entitlements", we see that it is really health care spending. Of the four, Medicare, Social Security, Medicaid, and "Obamacare", only the first two are actually entitlements. Three of the four are health care spending.

    Health care spending is taking a huge toll on the private sector as well.

    In fact, health care spending over all is more than all of federal spending on everything else, quite a lot more in fact.

    Which means that we seriously need real medical care reform, one that will cut costs.
    BHO has resisted all proposals to address entitlement spending. The deficits are his. By the time he leaves office he will bear responsibility for more of the national debt than all other Presidents combined.

    You must the last American in existence who believes the war in Iraq was not about oil.

    It was never about oil and there is no evidence whatsoever that it was. The US held absolute power in Iraq for years, and took no oil.
