    America must choose between Obamacare and other entitlements or infrastructure. America can't afford both. It must choose one or the other.

    I thought America was the richest country in the world? Why can't we afford what others can who make less money than we do?

    America is several different countries with increasingly less in common. There is no longer an American community in which we share some modicum of identity and consciousness.

    So screw it. Why should one nation in this country help another nation here that is hostile to it?

    We are talking about what America can afford. I find it interesting that people say the U.S. can't afford programs like Obamacare or universal health care when the U.S. is the wealthier than any other nation that has those programs.

    He who would be my brother shall be embraced and nothing shall be denied him.

    He who is hostile to me shall receive nothing but strife.

    If someone wants new infrastructure, it makes sense to be my brother and to drop all hostility to me and mine.

    If we are so much wealthier... why are we in such deep debt?

    Are you denying that the U.S. is significantly wealthier than all European countries with socialized health care?

    Also far bigger so the cost will be huge. So we can have health care like England that they can no longer afford?
