Chris Christie comments on entitlement society.
I have to say. I agree with him.

Here he goes again. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says the United
States is in danger of becoming a nation of "people sitting on a couch
waiting for their next government check."

The refreshingly blunt Republican lawmaker says this is the least optimistic period he's ever seen for this country.

He goes on - boy, doesn't he - saying, "It's because government's now
telling people, stop dreaming, stop striving, we'll take care of you.
We're turning into a paternalistic entitlement society. That will not
just bankrupt us financially, it will bankrupt us morally."

Christie says that when Americans stop believing that hard work and
integrity will bring them success, they'll turn into a bunch of couch
potatoes waiting for the next government handout.

He didn't mention President Obama, but he has previously said
lawmakers need to stop tip-toeing around the need to reform entitlement
spending. Christie has even called for raising the retirement age for
Social Security.

This is why people like Chris Christie, and why a lot of them were
disappointed when he decided not to run for president. A brand new poll
in New Jersey shows Christie with his highest approval rating yet: 59%.

The man has a point here. Entitlement spending consumes an ever growing portion of the federal budget.

We recently reported in the Cafferty File that nearly half of Americans live in a household that receives government assistance.
Another study shows the public's dependence on the federal government
jumped 23% during President Obama's first two years in office.

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it's time to pause and reflect.”

-Mark Twain
