So they spend close to 100 billion pounds (or 180 billion dollars) for free health care for all 60 million people living in UK. We have 5 times as many people so to do the same thing we need to spend 900 billion. Right now we spend about 600 billion on healthcare. So we just need another 300 billion. Heres a bright idea...lets cut back our military! We can cut 300 billion out of their budget and still be number one cant we? I mean whats funny is that if the entire world, every country, took all the money they spend on their military and combined it, it would still be less than what we spend just on our military budget. Is that not proof of overspending. (Currently the military budget of the entire planet is a little less than 1.1 trillion. 626 billion is what we spend in the US (dept of defense + global war on terror)) So lets stop sending the soldiers out, and bringing back all banged up and maybe that will save a few million on health care for them. (costs alot to get prosthetic arms/legs) Hell, if i have to pay a buck or two more per gallon, i can do it. Cant you?
