The fundamental issue with Social Security and other entitlement programs is the narrative that must be changed in our public discourse: we can all pay collectively to assist the weakest among us, or we can continue to give benefits to everybody, needy or not, at the expense of our children's future.

The unintended consequence of entitlement programs is more control of our lives by the Federal Government. This will eventually lead to socialism, the very system that we have been fighting for over 60 years. However, by reframing the narrative and making these programs a social contract between generations rather than entitlements, this problem can be resolved over the long run.
