It would be a much better investment to cut a little of the military budget and put it into education. We already have a military larger than the next 10 nations combined. How paranoid do we have to be?
If you can’t bring yourself to cut the military budget — even just a little bit — how about raising the corporate tax rate by a tenth of a percent? Ooops, sorry, can’t do that, those people donate to my reelection fund!
My cousin in law, who inherited a construction company, complained that he could not get dependable workers. Once he laid them off after completing a job, they would go on unemployment and refuse to return to work until it ran out.
