Yes, the issue is the failure to invest in this country. Money should not be wasted on stuff we can’t support anymore when people are dying.
And now Trump is trying to ramp the DoD budget above $750 billion. The reason the nation is poor is the fat cat pockets being filled from defense at 3/4 of trillion dollars. Who the hell are we spending that money to defend against? Russia? That’s a joke. Russia is poor. China is ramping up their Navy because of the South China Sea development that they want to defend but they are still only a little over $200 billion. And they are the next richest nation on the planet and the 4th biggest. How does this make any sense?
