    Military budget + bloated healthcare cost = dysfinction. Killing and healing is a disproportionate bunch of GDP.


    oh and BTW

    So we, as a society, are running around in a circle of disaster.

    This isn't new -- it's why a number of major corps have at various points tried to nudge health care -- and public option healthcare -- overhaul ahead, even to the point of dropping out of their own lobbying groups like Chamber of Commerce whoch are rabidly, knee-jerkily retrogrrade. But the (**) big Pharm and HMO folks are happy making dough hand over fist, and they are the ones directing traffic.

    I bet if government ran everything then we'd really be saving some money.

    You'll in the end have a right to everything the state says you should have because the state will take care of all those hard things like money, and your opinon will be issued to you too.

    Much simpler and more efficient.

    Warren isn't IMO what many think he is.

    If you knew the system was a corrupt crony capitalist system then you'd stand to make a fortune each and every time it looked bleak but you knew the system would be saved.

    Warren's latest bets IMO look exactly like that.

    So I have zero idea why I should listen to him on this issue.

    Chances are it's a setup IMO anyhow, there almost always has to be a Warren angle in it, maybe not, just my opinion.
