Some questions I have that hopefully can be answered relatively simply. OK, so social security, medicare, medicaid, and welfare all go under the category of "Entitlements". I got that. What percent of these "Entitlements" does welfare make up? And why do people put these things in the same category? Welfare seems to me to be in a fairly different category from social security. And Medicare. Medicaid, that's a different story, but a smaller story. Yes you know what I'm getting at. Racist assholes enjoy painting this "Entitlement" category, which includes social security and medicare, with the word "WELFARE" at the beginning of it. Seems pretty deceptive to me.
