Of the 5, I think the entitlement mentality is the most significant because indeed most people one talks to believe that the federal government should be everywhere, doing everything, saving everybody. This explains why people don't really consider the debt issue (#1). Yes, it's abstract but more importantly combatting the debt means reducing the role of a federal govt that they want to sustain.

Part of the entitlement mentality is the attitude that "I pay taxes, therefore I should try to get as much back as possible." I am part of that category. I would prefer to be taxed at a lower rate and eliminate that expensive government middleman, but that will never happen with the progressivecrats in power. So I milk the government teat dry. Viva la revolucion.

"Look at the string of broken promises. If you like your health care plan, you can keep it. Try telling that to the 20 million people who are projected to lose their health insurance if Obamacare goes through or the 7.4 million seniors who are going to lose it.

Or remember when he said this: I guarantee if you make less than $250,000, your taxes won’t go up. Of the 21 tax increases in Obamacare, 12 of them hit the middle class.

Or remember when he said health insurance premiums will go down $2,500 per family, per year?...
