Odds and Ends

So your saying spending more money is the answer to our debt? What about spending less overall? Is the answer to our over $18 trillion in debt spending more money? We don't even have free health care yet and we spend more on health care than defense overall. The federal government wastes so much money that we don't have. What about creating jobs and perhaps even raise minimum wage above or even at the cost of living expenses. I am not saying that free health care is a bad idea, but in no way shape or form can we afford it. If we had more jobs with better paying wages, not only would we save money from less people dependent on government money, we would also get more taxes and they would be able to pay for their own healthcare. Free health care is something we should strive for, just like free higher education. But we can't afford it right now. Less is more.
