I disagree that the health of Americans is not essential and I'm pretty well versed in why we have a fiscal problem. I said it once and I will say it again. Fixing one problem isn't mutually exclusive to fixing any others.
I don't know why you think spending on defense should be static. If people who make these decisions had followed that philosophy, we'd still be fielding a horse cavalry and arming our soldiers with muskets. It costs money to modernize.

I don't know what the "5 times" thing meant so I guess I fail to see your point too.

The health of Americans isn't wrapped up in whether or not we spend a few $billion on brain research. We'll still have a top notch health care system if was spend zero federal dollars on that research. That's why it's not essential.
