You expect this attitude from a child - "Me, Me, Me" without any concern as to cost. But adults need to be tuned in to reality. Unfortunately too many adults today think like that child - "Me, Me, Me", and expect the gov't to be mommy & daddy and pick up the cost.
I don't disagree that there are some like that but it is not the great numbers that it is often made out to be. Strangely, some people like
to believe that there are people sitting around living the good life on their
dime rather than work for a living... they get satisfaction in themselves somehow by perpetuating this thought. That is why Romney's 47% statement was so repugnant, because it shows he is willfully ignorant of the actual numbers.
