I used to favor cuts in social programs, including Medicare. But then I was told it was ok to spend unlimited taxpayers dollars on wars and nation-building — including health care and social benefits — in Iraq, Afghanistan and other Middle East counties. In total, we’ve spent $12 trillion over there since Bush first launched our invasions and nation-buildings.
I no longer have a problem with spending money on American seniors and struggling middle and lower class Americans, since we are forced to pay health care, education, infrastructure and security in so many foreign countries.
Wars are profitable for the taxpayer.
You want us to lose money .. why?
Yeah! bad things pay well.
IDK. Just don’t be so simplistic.
