Entitlements

What do you even mean by "tax reductions for the wealthy". They still pay taxes, and are not exempt due to their income. This is not an example of an entitlement.--MRellek 18:35, 25 July 2011 (EDT)

The ones that Bush enacted, which were extended last winter. People with a certain income level had their taxes reduced (I never said they were exempt). They are wealthy people. Why is it not an example of an entitlement? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Elbow (talk)

The definition of entitlements provided here is poor. It is most certainly not an entitlement as the traditional definition is the access to benefits or rights, and is generally used to refer to programs such as Medicare.--MRellek 18:42, 25 July 2011 (EDT)

An entitlement is a demand for a benefit from government despite a lack of productive work.--Andy Schlafly 19:19, 25 July 2011 (EDT)

Okay, write your own definition. Mine was accurate according to dictionary.com [1]. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Elbow (talk)
No, your version was not accurate at all. I checked your Dictionary.com source, and there is absolutely nothing about "tax reductions for the wealthy" being called an entitlement. So don't come here just to make things up. Karajou 22:59, 25 July 2011 (EDT)
It also doesn't say anything about poor people, disabled people, or veterans.--Elbow 7:11, 26 July 2011 (EDT)
Then you're making up more stuff. Last warning. Karajou 09:36, 26 July 2011 (EDT)
So maybe the entire second half of the article should be deleted? Elbow 10:06, 26 July 2011 (EDT)
Elbow, I see what you're trying to say, but, and as a poll sic major I feel somewhat qualified to say this, the program you mention really isn't considered an entitlement program. I think you've been overruled by enough users now that it's time to put the debate to rest.--IDuan 10:09, 26 July 2011 (EDT)
