[QUOTE=OCCH;4250076]I am on board with this, as long as we also take money that is being WASTED in areas like education, postal service, etc.
The money we waste overseas does not excuse the money we waste right here at home, and if we're gonna say we're serious about health care we gotta leave politics aside and truly get our priorities straight.
Sadly, I don't see either side truly admitting this, as it's easier to just point your finger at the other side. And therefore, I highly doubt any of this will ever come to pass . . .[/QUOTE]
Lets get the average salary of a private school teacher and make that the salary of all public school teachers. Then the difference can be applied to healthcare. Cut their pensions to match those of private school teachers as well. Sound good?;)
