Believe that "forced participtation" is an "entitlement"?
Tough question. Depend on your definition of "entitlement."
Welfare is generally accepted as entitlements, but so is Social Security. One is a hand out and the other is not. One is forced participation and one is not. Health Care is an entirely different animal.
Forced participation requires a law to be passed.
Yes AND No.
I say "forced participation" is not an entitlement.
You mean like "car insurance"?
Or the "draft"?
Well, I'm for both.
Ok, I'll keep playing..., PIG!
I agree with you when it comes to Health care. That is certainly no entitlement to me. Just leave me and my policy alone. I don't see where in the consitutionit says I have to pay for a policy for someone who doesn't want one.
But people are morally "entitled" to Social Security because they paid into it with their own money. And legally they are forced to participate because of law.
Both are burdens on the tax payer in different ways.
