From Crooks and Liars today:
Isn’t it interesting? Because I never hear them talk quite the same about costs when it comes to war. For example: “We really want to stabilize Afghanistan – but it has to be revenue-neutral” or “Yes, we know we said it was important to stabilize Iraq, but we simply can’t afford this anymore.”
No, the place where they decide to draw the line is… our health. War is seen as the absolute necessity and health care is seen as optional. That’s just crazy.
