U.S. Spends More on Medical Care for Inmates than Seniors, Veterans, Military Personnel

President Obama has repeatedly demonstrated that there’s an extra special place in his heart for incarcerated criminals, but this is a bit much. The administration spends a lot more money on the medical care of jailed convicts than retired seniors on Medicare, active U.S. military personnel or veterans, including an extra $100 million in one year alone, according to a federal audit released this month.

    30% of the prison population are the illegals that Hillary and Obama say enrich the USA and all have jobs .

    Of course they spend that money on the prisoners. That’s your standard Democrat voter base.

    • BillyHW

      Every miscreant, parasite, criminal and loser votes Democrat. Do the few normal Democratic voters ever look around themselves and see the company they keep?

        They can’t, their heads are too far up their asses to see.

    That only accounts for the federal prison system. State inmates are not cheap either. The costs per state incarcerated inmates are staggering. Medical and mental health care, standards of which are basically mandated by the thousands of inmate lawsuit court decisions cost gonormous amounts of money. Defending inmate lawsuits requires, small to large state employee attorney law firm size government departments.

    Inmates have much greater access to doctors and other care workers than any veteran and many other worthy people.

    I doubt it equals the situation in Canada where inmates have full free medical and dental care, far more than tax paying Canadians. Oh, and let us not forget the same now goes for all the so-called refugees with the Liberals back in power.

      You forgot free University courses if they qualify. A murderer can really stack up the degrees with all that time on their hands.
