Social spending is good for the economy, actually 

Conservatives have no clue how economies work.
The things they oppose because "we don't have the money" are just those which increase economic activity, i.e. create more money.
But they're always eager to buy the one thing where the money literally gets blown into bits - weapons.

Seriously:
Healthcare means workers can do more work, and work better.
Public transport means workers get to work more easily and have more money to spend.

Social spending ... (cont'd) 

Even "just giving everyone free money", , has been proven time and time again to create more money than it costs.

Of course, conservative leaders arn't actually concerned about prudent spending. That's just rhetoric.
What they're really about is maintaining inequality, and handing public money to the 1%.
They don't mind flushing money down the drain if it's their rich friends'/donors' drain.
