You gotta be careful with analogies Zerub...they all break down at some point and can distort reality rather than clarify it. Yours is spectacularly poor...How about the leeches are politicians and quasi-governmental entities that waste billions and trillions of dollars while producing nothing of real extrinsic value, and the host are producers of goods and services, both large and small. This country has more than enough resources to care for its poor, sick, and elderly. It just can't do that and support the leeches.
