If you could choose where tax dollars went, what would you fund?
I would fund higher education and healthcare, legitimate healthcare, not just the symptom chasing kind that makes billions in profits for pharmaceutical manufacturers. I think preventative care and focusing on health would reduce health care costs due to preventable conditions.
Education would also be a plus. So many young people graduating with debt up to their eyeballs and not enough decent jobs to go around. It's a sad situation. Fund higher education and remove tax incentives to companies who export jobs overseas and give them instead to companies who employ people here (at a living wage).
So many things I would do differently if I were in charge of the money lol
I think that I would put tax dollars into the education system first. But managing the money involves spending the money responsibly. If a school is open that does not have a certain number of students then it should be closed. I would find a way to raise teachers salaries, because teachers have decided to make their work a career and they should be compensated. Lastly I would find a way to help the students of the school have meals all day every day until they graduated.
Education first, everything else second. Raising a highly trained, highly educated, and highly motivated generation of young people would fix most, if not all, of our nation's problems.
Personally, I want most of my tax dollars to be spent on funding the US Armed Forces.
