The Elephant in the Room

Liberals like to point out that Republican President Eisenhower warned us about the Military Industrial Complex.  Face it, the problem isn't the M.I.C, it's the M.E.C, the Medical Entitlement Complex.

Problems with International Affairs?  Perhaps you can look to the narrow 1% slice of the budget we spend on it.

Slipping educational performance on the world stage? College graduates with Master's degrees that can parse a sentence? Look no further than the 2% we spend on education.

Being outstripped in technology by the Chinese?  Hmm... 1% on Science.

The military is down to less than 1/5 of the budget, yes still an enormous sum yet we seem incapable of doing anything to stop ISIS, genocide, or Iran from getting a nuclear bomb.

60% of the US budget goes to the Medical Entitlement Complex, you tell me what the elephant in the room is.
