And just where do we fall?
The old regime built palaces while letting schools decay, so we are rebuilding more than a thousand schools. The old regime starved hospitals of resources, so we have helped to supply and reopen hospitals across Iraq. The old regime built up armies and weapons while allowing the nation's infrastructure to crumble, so we are rehabilitating power plants, water and sanitation facilities, bridges and airports.
Meanwhile, back in America, we'll just keep throwing money at CEOs and corporations while letting schools decay, starving hospitals for resources, and allowing the infrastructure to crumble.
