Looks can be deceiving,

The entitlement mentality has been common in America for a long time. People feel entitled to health care, housing,...Etc. (some even feel entitled to cell phone services!) I've often mentioned on this blog how FDR's New Deal set into motion the welfare state we now have. But in my opinion the single most responsible thing for the entitlement mentality, is the illusion of free. Many people don't consider that every product and service has a cost to be paid. If free health care was truly "free", I would be all for it. But it's not free at all. Not when we as tax payers are paying the tab for others. Others who sometimes cheat the system to get unneeded health services.
