Why We Can't Have Nice Things

Because our rulers just like to spend money on horrible pointless things.
At a time when the United States government is under pressure to cut spending, and every dollar counts, some members of Congress are pushing for a new missile defense site, possibly on the East Coast, that could eventually cost at least $3.6 billion. The proposal is premature at best and could actually harm America’s national security by denying resources to other more urgently needed and more effective defense programs.
