Besides. It's the government's job to take care of all that!
I'm just saying there is a shitload of money spent that there is no need to spend. $4 billion in corporate welfare to the oil companies? They are making $30-40 billion in profits every year.
I'm all for getting deadbeats off the government dime. I've always been for placing limits on how long and how much someone can be on the government dole.
But despite all the money that could be saved in cutting waste in the DOD and social programs they pale in comparison in what needs to happen in medicaid and medicare. Thats what is going to kill us in the long term.
