You need to do more research. According to this source, Defense spending including veteran benefits add up to 21% of federal spending. SS & medical insurance 53%. That's 74% total.

Of course, in countries where government runs the health insurance company, it's about half the cost.

And about half the quality. Cuba, to take one case has a two tier system. One for the elites and one for the peasants.

Both systems are corrupt for different reasons with the exception they are both government sponsored. I ask. How the hell do you expect government to manage the health care industry when it can't manage its own finances? That's a rhetorical question.

Remember Alberto Gonzales? en.wikipedia.org

Gonzales's tenure as U.S. Attorney General was marked by controversy regarding warrantless surveillance of U.S. citizens and the legal authorization of so-called "enhanced interrogation techniques" (i.e., much later, generally acknowledged as constituting torture), in the U.S. government's post-9/11 "war on terrorism".

If I am correctly informed, Gorsuch wrote much of the legal work for Gonzales.

And to think, he looks so innocent.

To put a picture on this, medical costs are easily the fastest growing item in the consumer price index.

You libs are going to love the price increases and the cutbacks.

Don't despair. There is another way to reduce costs. Euthanasia will thin out the herd.

Trump not so stupid

Trump then said that "I've been saying for the last year and a half that the best thing we can do politically speaking is let ObamaCare explode," Trump said of the path forward. "It is exploding right now. Many states have big problems, almost all states have big problems. I was in Tennessee the other day and they've lost half of their state in terms of an insurer. They have no insurer. And that's happening to many other places."

"I was in Kentucky the other day and similar things are happening," he continued. "So, ObamaCare is exploding with no Democrat support. We couldn't quite get there with just a very small number of votes short in terms of getting our bill passed."

"People will see how bad it is and it's getting much worse," Trump added. "I said the other day when President Obama left, '17, he knew he wasn't going to be here. '17 is going to be a very bad year for ObamaCare, very, very bad. You're going to have explosive premium increases and your deductibles are so high people don't even get to use it."

"But we're very, very close," he said. "And, again, I think what will happen is ObamaCare, unfortunately, will explode."

Trump also said the losers from Friday's failed vote are Democrats. "The losers are Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer because now they own ObamaCare," Trump said. "They own it, 100 percent own it. And this is not a Republican health care, this is not anything but a Democrat health care, and they have ObamaCare for a little while longer until it ceases to exist, which it will at some point in the near future."
