    People die. The government doesn't. Which makes it much easier for governments to borrow. Think about it; if you're a lender you need to get paid back before the borrower dies, otherwise you'll lose out. A government, on the other hand, isn't going anywhere.
    It sounds as though you're condoning government waste.

    That flawed thinking has led to countries like Greece to have inflict true austerity onto it's people
