The US doesn't have anywhere close to a debt crisis and is not broke!! Find better news sources.
Government debt is measured in Debt to GDP ratios. China's (who's supposedly eating our lunch according to Trump) GDP to debt ratio is 306%. Whereas the US has 106% debt to GDP ratio.
Now if we're talking GDP the US spends almost 18% of it's GDP on Healthcare, all other industrialized nations spend 12% of GDP or less on their National Health Care cost (average is 9.5% of GDP). We have an opportunity to cover all americans with HC and lower our overall debt and costs.
I know you don't believe this, but I know a lot of people who are perfectly capable of working, getting insurance, and paying into the system, and choose not to simply because it's not how they want to spend their time. If more people were
open to getting employment, and playing by the rules, there would be less people who "need" and "can't get" or "can't afford" insurance.NSSG
I believe it 100%. There is no US debt issue in reality. If there was going to be a debt crisis than The US 30 year treasury bonds wouldn't be at less than 3% which is actually close to an all-time low. Lenders aren't worried about
the US defaulting in 30 years.
There are many people in the US who work for Fast Food restaurants, grocery stores, chain stores, and delivery drivers that don't earn a living wage and get no health insurance through their jobs. The US government subsides these employers by providing some of their employees with food stamps and Medicaid when they qualify. Walmart is one of the largest abusers of this practice. The US government is subsidising the profits of Walmart stockholders and the Walton Family. They also make a large profit on all the food stamps that are used in their stores.
