“ObamaBucks” and “Entitlement Mentality”

Appearing on the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” on 3/19/12, Project 21 fellow Deneen Borelli and pollster Pat Caddell talk with host Sean Hannity about documentarian Alexandra Pelosi’s new film short of people in line at a New York City welfare office.  With able-bodied individuals eschewing entering the workforce in favor of getting free “Obama Bucks” (as one person called public assistance), Deneen calls the “entitlement mentality” of the people in the film “outrageous” because they are “happy to be on the government plantation.”
