>>99145693>some companies that create jobs
yes, but the amount of jobs created will not surpass the jobs removed, like i said. If you shut down all the coal plants, and replace them with solar plants, you haven't actually done much except change the places people are working with no promise that more jobs will be created beyond that.>uk health service
ah, yes, where you can wait four days in an emergency room, four months for a specialist, and several years for treatement>america can't do that because it spends all its money on the military
where the US military serves basically as the militarizes of the USA, Canada, UK, EU, Germancy, France, Israel, etc. The reason most European countries can afford their programs is because they don't have to fund more than a token military force, and most of their equipment is developed and produced by the USA.
In addition, the USA does not have as large a tax base as one might think. 65% of the usa is white, and probably 55-60% pay taxes, 13% is black of which maybe 3% pay taxes and 10% are on government assistance programs. 15% is latino, where again 12% is probably on government assistance rather than paying taxes (counting illegals). Asians generally pay taxes.
So, you have perhaps 70% of the USA paying taxes, and 30% either not contributing or being outright supported by the government. The US government is trillions in debt to try and support everything, and you want that 70% to somehow pay for even more shit despite the fact they're already taxed to the point of national stagnation, which would include covering additional programs to support the 30% they're already carrying.>>99145751
colleges could certainly reduce their prices, but insisting that "de gubsment" pick up the bill (i.e. the average person has to pay more in taxes for someone else's shit) is not a solution.
