We can't save the world and also keep printing money.Jesus H. Christ, Jim.
It's about money and humanity. When Southern States get laid to waste by hurricanes or floods it isn't their own micro economies bailing them out.
If you follow Corprin's logic he's saying that next time people need help in the USA they should get the middle finger instead because the humanity they display in regards to taking care of the weakest members of our global society is found to be severely lacking.
There is more than enough money to pay for all of this and more...but we have to stop letting billionaires use American infrastructure to enrich themselves while not even coming close to paying for the resources they consume.
