It ain't what you got, it's what you do with it that counts.
I was surprised to find that Canada pays less than the US overall.
And for that Canada has a rudimentary universal health care system, and the US has what?
Crumbling infrastructure and an overpriced military that funnels money into the military's suppliers and from there to the executives of those suppliers.
It's no wonder the US citizenry are so angry.
