They have a lower debt than we do (28% of GDP vs ≈100%), but they have a lower corporate tax rate than the U.S. does too, so perhaps that's the cause of the lower debt? They do have a ≈78% surcharge on oil/energy (which is why gas costs $10/gallon), but they collect a lot more of their tax revenue from VAT tax than from oil or corporations, so taxing oil profits isn't why they have a low debt ratio. Their social programs are capped based on tax revenues, unlike ours: perhaps we should look at doing that?

Actually, the U.S. spends more on education than on the military, it just doesn't do it at the federal level (most is at State and Local).

The real choice is whether you want workers to have jobs at Walmart or be on unemployment.
