What is "social and economic justice"?

I am a Republican that voted for Bush, Obama (first term), Romney and Johnson/Weld. That is a fantastic answer! Thank you. I remain disappointed that the Democrats don't shine more lite on HR 3. (clearly republicans have been paid off) Most citizens don't realize that the US government spends more on healthcare/person than Canada. In total we spend ~19% of GDP as compared to 10-13% other western societies with universal services. Therefore, the problem isn't money it's the expense across the entire healthcare supply chain. Just math. How do you/we reduce salaries to doctors, nurses, hospitals, drug manufacturers, medical device companies, distributors, etc. while increasing supply? How do we get society to realize drugs that cost $100ks can't be universally supplied if you want universal coverage? Just math. I look forward to politicians who lead by debating objectively the real issues (my utopia). Answers like yours, will get republicans like me in your camp. Good luck!

It's easy to pick an issue and advocate. Can you prioritize the top 5 current programs you want continue and the top 5 you want to dis-continue?
