To be specific, the Children's Health Insurance Program costs approximately $15 billion per year and the tax break for the extremely wealthy starts with $20 billion cost to start with and gets worse as deficits grow and other repercussions take place.
The problem is that the pathetic value system of the leadership in this country, the leadership in congress places virtually no value on protecting the nation's 8.9 million children whose parents could not afford insurance last year. For these greedy individuals, money and self-enrichment is the only thing that matters.
Orin Hatch, as one example, immediately after declaring no money for the children's health program, voted for a trillion-dollar tax cut for corporations and the wealthy elite.
These truly 'pathetic individuals' can't even get their own story straight. Some of them claim that the tax breaks for the wealthy will not add $1 trillion to be the deficit - defying every credible economist. Some of them offer true nonsense saying that economic growth, resulting from the stimulated economy, resulting from the tax cut for the wealthy will offset the deficit - again defying every credible economist.
On the other hand, some claim that they will simply raise taxes to defeat the deficit if necessary. Nobody believes this or they wouldn't be cutting taxes in the first place. And those who border on the real truth point out the fact that if the deficit is an issue (it is guaranteed to be an issue) they will simply cut more and more social programs to balance the budget... 'damn the children'.
And as the women come forward with the truth, one wonders if all the men in congress are sexual predators or is it just most of them? And our president brags about his sexually preying on women he perceives as unable to defend themselves.
The real issue in our country is that you, the voter, continue to place these 'pathetic' people into office regardless of how badly they undermine benefits for the average citizen. We will find our soon whether or not you will elect the pedophile, Roy Moore. Is there any hope for us as a country?
