The world doesn't work that way. It's not a zero sum game. You could throw 2 trillion dollars into U.S. health care, education, and poverty reduction and it would only get marginally better. The U.S. already spends more than any other country in the world on education per student, yet it doesn't rank #1. There are other issues at play. Throwing money at stuff doesn't make problems go away. It's why I always laugh at Political adds that seem to attribute fiscal expenditures to "support." It comes down to efficiency, not raw numbers.
