All government payments are either entitlements or subsidies.
"Eliminating all subsidies" would eliminate all infrastructure repair, like roads, bridges, dams, power plants, sewer and water plants. It would also eliminate all military expenditures, all police protection, all fire protection, all school systems, and all government expenditures except entitlements.
All those endeavors are subsidized.
The only payments left would be entitlelments, like social security, medicare, and government and military payroll. Those are entitlements.
