The politicians are not going to cut war spending to finance healthcare

The telltale part of Obama's speech was the applause in response to his pledge that "I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits." Yet, Obama and his fellow politicians have no hesitation to add trillions of dollars to the deficit in order to fund wars.The profits of military/security companies are partly recycled into campaign contributions. To cut war spending in order to finance a public health care system would cost politicians campaign contributions from both the insurance industry and the military/security industry. Politicians are not going to allow that to happen.It was the war in Afghanistan, not health care, that President Obama declared to be a "necessity."
--from "The Health Care Deceit" by Paul Craig Roberts
