...low-income entitlement spending has been falling. In the next decade, the Congressional Budget Office says it will return to the same level it's been for the last 40 years: a little more than 1 percent of our nation's income. If you exclude health care, where costs are rising for completely separate reasons, the CBO expects low-income entitlement spending to fall below its 40-year average in coming years.
The CBO is making these projections, of course, based on the Obama administration's budget. The president who is supposedly giving away free stuff, it turns out, is actually planning to reduce low-income entitlements.
