Medicare's reserves "exhausted in 2017"? -but ENDLESS $$ for War????
WAR is very expensive. War ruins lives.
The Iraq and Afghanistan wars are illegal and immoral.
We went to war based on a lie.
The US borrows money from China, a communist country - to pay for these illegal wars.

Meanwhile, 1 out of 4 people under medicare age do not have health coverage,
and face bankruptcy if they incur an accident or serious illness.

Meanwhile, our businesses cannot compete with other industrialized countries who
have health care for all.

The lack of health care plus our illegal wars and borrowing from China are a serious threat to our country's economic security,

2. we aim to kill
not to heal.

Those at the top do not get it nor do they really care (yes, I am beginning to really believe this). Healthcare reform is just a carrot they throw at us to keep us docile.

3. Conflating Iraq and Afghanistan
is like conflating Iraq and al qaeda.

Otherwise everything you say is true.

4. Well, a country's gotta have its priorities.
And that's for the ruling class to rape the Treasury for all it's worth while it can.

6. "That country will be a base for terrorists who want to kill us." - Obama
We need to fight them over there so we don't have to fight them over here
