What Kind of Country Is the United States?

What kind of country lets people die of the cold because they don't have money for heat but can purchase weapons of destruction for billions of dollars? What kind of country can allow pollution to destroy clean winter air in Yellowstone National Park but can give tax credits to owners of the giant SUVs?

What kind of country can let young women die from illegal abortions and condemn innocent babies to a life of poverty and drugs?

What kind of country does not have health care for all but can pay billions for attack planes?

It makes you wonder.
