We just don’t have the money, or do we?


Don’t you find it ironic, when our elected representatives say “we just don’t have the money to provide universal health care to everyone in this country”, they don’t have any trouble finding enough tax dollars to pay for their own health care, and the health care of millions of government employees.

Don’t you find it ironic, when our elected representatives say “we just don’t have the money to provide universal health care to everyone in this country”, they can manage to find 100’s of billions of tax dollars to fund two wars [Iraq and Afghanistan], and provide those citizens with health care.

And don’t you find it ironic, when our elected representatives say “we just don’t have the money to extend unemployment benefits any longer”, they don’t have any trouble finding plenty of tax dollars to fund salary increases for themselves, and for millions of government employees.

It just seems ironic when it’s of benefit to our elected representatives, or their friends, they don’t have any trouble finding the money, but if they won’t derive any benefit, all of a sudden, there just isn’t enough money.
