My point above was that there are so many demands on government resources, Defence is a lower priority. We may become involved in a war at some future date, but people need healthcare now. Mitigation of climate change needs to happen now. So, do we pour money into a defence budget for a hypothetical war and triage healthcare and say to hell with our future generations? That is a question voters will answer, as they have in the past. There is always options, If we could find a solution to just one problem then sure ( not becasue we are incapable, but it seems our government is), let's do health care. But since we are a G-7 country we should be able to atleast do a few at a time, Germany just spent 100 bil, little old Australia has spent 300 Bil over a 5-to-10-year period, both had the pandemic, but we cannot some reason solve anything of any importance. So do i cancel my house insurance because of a hypothetical fire, keeping in mind that our military does more than defense. Climate change is a want that nobody really cares about on a global scale.
