That’s one very interesting argument. So, what you’re saying should bear out in life, right?
I know someone from the UK. He swears by the public health service and wouldn’t have it any other way. I know someone from Germany. Same thing. Those “socialist” countries pay half in GDP what we pay for health care with similar or even better outcomes.
Now the reason public defenders are so poorly paid is that the conservatives are there to *make sure* public defenders are poorly funded and they *make sure* that the district attorney is very well funded. Priorities, right?
Your analogy is interesting, but it doesn’t bear scrutiny.
