Nope folks you are entitled to ****E! Get a frigging job! Or 2 or 3.
Since I'm a taxpayer and have also received SS Statements my entire working life as well as having paid into Medicare I have a very different POV.
I'm entitled to safe drugs and food, secure markets without inside trading, national defense from foreign and domestic enemies, protection from predatory companies, clean water and air, a social safety net for those who aren't able, I'm paying into unemployment, a Justice system that enforces the contracts I make with companies for all kinds of services, etc., etc., etc.
I have a frigging job and a pay an enormous amount in taxes and I'm entitled to get what I voted and paid for.
This is our government voted for and paid for by us. Stop calling it entitlements since we have either directly paid for the services through taxes or through inflation.
