Yet all this is penny-ante stuff. The real money is in entitlements. And the real scandal of this budget is that Obama doesn’t touch them. Not Social Security. Not Medicaid. Not Medicare.

Charles Krauthammer, National Review Online

I don’t expect Democratic presidents to touch this stuff, though they should.  But it’s not like Republicans helped by explicitly campaigning against Democrats for cutting Medicare payments in the Affordable Care Act.

    Maybe you people (leaches) who suggest making cuts in Medicare and Social Security won’t feel the impact but we Honest, Hard Working everyday Americans need every dollar we can get (yes, I’ll say it – Entitled To) to survive. We invested dollars, blood, sweat and tears in this country during our generation and we are Entitled to get the investment back. The REAL sacred cow is the military. God forbid we would ever cut military spending. How much do we (over)spend on the military?? Isn’t our military budget something like more than the next 100 countries combined? What really galls me is that you and people like you are looked at as the experts to be believed and heeded. Actually all I can see of your freeloading existance is a self serving “Me First” attitude, that has turned into a “Me Only” attitude. Our country needs another bloody revolution and people like you should be the first to die for Your side.

    Chill. No one is saying we should eliminate the programs, only to reform them. But I am intrigued by your bloody revolution to preserve the status quo.
