With all the plans Obama has for new government programs, entitlement programs have been under a microscope lately. I believe this is a good thing. The folks at the Heritage Foundation have written a great article about the costs of these programs. It is completely out of control. Now, Obama and his liberal friends want to add more. To many Americans, the promises that they are making sound great. But one of the problems with all of these programs (and there are many programs and many problems) is that people don’t look at what it will really cost them. Here’s a great graphic that illustrates this beautifully. (Click to enlarge.)
We must start cutting entitlement programs. (And no, we shouldn’t just abandon the people that are on Social Security.) We simply cannot allow more government entitlement spending.
