Refusal to Cut Costs

The governments of the USA and Canada are facing extreme pressure to cut costs. Oddly they both refuse to cut costs of optional wars like Afghanistan and Iraq. They won’t even try to cut the fraud from no-bid or cost-plus contracts. Granted this is to be expected because the politicians are on the take from the defence industry but it is idiotic just the same. Wars provide nothing for the future but holes in the ground. Expenditures on education, roads, railways, alternative energy, sewers, factories… pay dividends for decades to come.
