[Homework]2011-11-27&12-03 美国政府破产的故事 (2/3)

So where is that money going?
Well,first the millitary take the biggest chunk.726 billion dollars and twenty eleven,WOW,we could build a lot of better future with that kind of money.
Spending billions on fight plans we don't need or wars with no end and then saying we were broke just isn't honest.It's like calling your kids from your billion dollar yard to tell you can't afford the school lunch money.
Then,hundreds of billions more are go to proping up the dinosaur economy.You know,the obviously things do we talk about the stories of stuff the one that producers more pullution greenhouse gases and garbage than any other on earth and doesn't even makes its happy.In so many ways it's just not working.
But we were keeping eye on our life support instead of building something better.A lot of that life support comes in form of subsidies.A subsidy is a give way that give some companies a lift over others.That's not necessarilly a bad thing we should have companies that building a better future.The problem is our government keeps lifting up companies is that actually drag us down.
Everywhere you look along the dinosaur economy you will find the subsidies.There spending subsidies where the government just gives our money away like payments that benefit big * business more helping drive family farms off the cliff.Or unless the obvious version that the government * the bill for things corporation should pay for themselves like cleaning up * chemicial spills are gaint life near *.
Our building roads is only good one place like a new * or pay for polluting and waste for garbage will never make financial things to build on their own.Then there is tax subsidies which excuse big corporations from contributings their fair share.Like the enormous tax breaks to oiling gas companies.Even in times of rocket profits.These subsidies amount billions we should be collecting and puting to good use.
And then there is a risk transfer subsidies where our government excess in invesent bank or insurance company for corporations doing risk thing.Like building nuclear reactors.If anything goes wrong,we have to cover for them.
There is freebie subsidies where our government gifts staff that belongs to all of us to corporations for cheap or even free.That's billions more that we should be collecting but never see.Like * mine public lines granted a price second mining * 1872.Really,1872.President * signed this law to encourage settlement invest.News flash,it's settled.
And all this doesn't even count externalized cost.They don't * any * and could amount trillions of dollars including all of the damage the environment ,public health and climates this dinosaur economy causes.
Without lost that make this polluters pay.We all pay with the lose of cleaning water,of increased * cancer.By the time we handed up all this subsidies there isn't even enough money to pay our bills.Forget about building a better future.
