You can save $6 billion today and spend $1 trillion down the road.
Conservatives always do that. Look at disaster funding, climate change, fossil fuels, etc. They always default to paying through the nose later if they can pinch a penny today. They are the most fiscally irresponsible people on the planet. Always have been.
As for hating the poor, that's another hallmark of conservatives. They'll gladly pay extra for things in exchange for being able to openly mock and ridicule others. Don't fund sex ed, instead pay much more for health care and housing for bankrupt mothers later, as long as they can call them sluts. They don't want tax money to help the needy, they prefer private charities, where they can pick and choose who to help and who to let die.
Conservatives are very often horrid creatures.
