All that money that they plan to spend "punishing" Syria would be better off spent fixing Detroit...

Just saying, you know.

3. the problem is not lack of money

it's getting support to use the money for particular things.

4. I understand that

It's always easy to find money to blow things up with. Not so easy to find money to help people and places that are down on their luck :sigh:

5. How come there was not enough money or political will to bring a single-payer health care system to

the U.S.?

Every year well over 45,000 die from lack of access to medical care in our country. Where are the politicians taking the bully pulpit to defend these lives at all costs?

This is too much hypocrisy for me.

6. it's not just the politicians, many people don't want it which is why they vote for people like the

congress members who keep voting to even get rid of things like obamacare . and they would never support single payer or anything else which would help people.

7. One answer is that universal health care would not reward politicians who became stockholders in

 

health insurance companies, nor family members and friends who became stockholders in health insurance companies.

It is corruption done in the open.

8. K&R. Probably will be the best post of the day.

 

Where are the Congressmen from Detroit? And why aren't they asking to have Detroit fixed instead?

Where are the Senators for Michigan? And, likewise, why aren't they asking to have Detroit fixed instead?
