Published: Sunday, January 27, 2013 at 08:37 AM.

We have a crisis of an ever-dependent, ever-growing entitlement state. With Obamacare, yet another entitlement, representing 18 percent of our economy, has been added. The government “safety net” has become a safety Barcalounger in front of a flat screen TV.

Washington, D.C.’s  finances are more messed up than Mike Tyson’s checkbook. Sadly, it looks like the GOP will miss another opportunity to enforce fiscal discipline and will give in to the Democrats without firing a shot. Maybe we really are becoming like France.
