HEY AMERICA !!! did you know that if you spent 10% of your military budget on health care you could have universal health care. but then again who needs cancer treatments when you an have shiny new stealth jets right ?

It would take way more than 10% of our budget to take care of healthcare, and even then that's with taxes to help it, which is bad for most people.

I disagree the US military budget is absurdly enormous.

Yes but you fail to see how expensive universal healthcare is.

extremely undermanned as it is...maybe if they pulled their dicks out of so many different locations around the world they could cut back more...

dude, we keep funding the refurbishment of tanks, that the army has already said they don't need anymore (as many as we have), that among other stupid **** the military has asked the politicians to stop funding could probably make up the 10% difference.

I think it depends on the person rank and stuff but usually veterans get shafted.

my s/o is an E5 and he does okay. I'm a disabled vet and I get 60% of E4 pay once a month. Together we make enough to get by and live comfortably.
