/EINPresswire.com/ It is amazing how both parties are still playing politics with the fiscal cliff. President Obama’s proposal will raise 40 billion and the Republican proposal will will raise 20 billion. The difference is just 20 billion. 20 billion covers just less than 6 days of the actual US national deficient. Both parties are stuck on this symbolic partisanship when the actual problem is far more huge. They should postpone this issue for the last and get on with the serious task of trimming down expenditures; not just by slashing budgets. They need to overhaul policies on all fronts.
Everyone is focused on cutting down expenditures while the problem is far more complex. Lets take the military budget. The military spends $90.00 on screws and a $1000.00 on toilets! The whole system is corrupt to the core. Not only does this deprive the American people out of money it makes the military weaker. Take for example the fact that we are confident that since the Chinese do not spend even 20% of our level on defense we feel we are are ahead of them. The Chinese probably spend 3 dollars on screws and 50 dollars on toilets! Their salaries and their medical bills are much lower. They do not spend much on research… and no matter how far ahead we get, they catch up…Our military expenditure has to be wised up.
Take the medical expenditure, it is simply unsustainable. The whole medical policy must be put under review. Americans are living longer. However 30% of medical costs are incurred in the last six months of life. The bulk of this money is spent on the worst cases. Not only are the costs huge the elderly patient goes through a lot of pain and suffering. Perhaps 80%+ of life’s total pain is suffered during these last six months of life. Perhaps we spend this huge amount of money as someone said, to prolong death rather than prolonging life. For the majority of these unfortunate elderly patients it is an undignified and painful life. The treatment itself is in many cases more of an insult to life than a celebration of life. Our medical policy must be wised up.
Take our education policy. Our education is in such a mess that after spending trillions of dollars we now have a trillion dollar student debt. We spend the bulk of our education budget on making every student a jack of all trades. We even force those who are not suited to become jack of all trades to struggle and struggle with their studies. Every single task requires professional skill. What is a jack of all trades good for? Not much, as even the lower skill jobs need professional expertise.
And worse we produce 80% emotionally challenged brains. Simply because we teach the mind while we ignore brain education and even miseducate the brain. Emotionally challenged brains are responsible for such high rates of crime, divorce, depression, drug addictions etc. Crime alone drains our resources of over 1.3 trillion. Just imagine the total cost of emotionally challenged behavior. We need to wise up our education policy by introducing a new compulsory subject that teaches wisdom/emotional intelligence.
As for National Security there are so many overlapping agencies that it is not even funny. The whole National Security policy needs wising up.
