These type of questions perplex liberals, and they don't like the answers they'd have to give, so either:

A.) Try and ignore it

B.) Ignore what they know the questions about, and turn the subject to tax breaks for the rich
C.) Spew a bunch of name calling and hate for even asking it.

Choose which is the most enjoyable to stomach.

Are you saying that the middle class and rich don't also get entitlements? Or are you just trying to narrowly define it? I get to deduct my property taxes from my federal taxes. I am ENTITLED, by law, to this deduction; it is therefore an entitlement. Just as using the VA is, just as Tri-Care is, just as my retirement are. They are all entitlements. That is the definition of the word.

I think the subject is entitlements, regardless of social class.

When the OP says, "do entitlements make a class of people feel inferior", I think you know he is not talking about tax deductions. Why does this board have to spin everything? You all know exactly what he's referring too.
