Not only the socialists, but everybody who has benefited from better education, better healthcare, better housing and better recreation.
Even the rich, who have paid for more of it than the poor (who have got more of the direct benefit).
The rich don't need government funded health care - but they do benefit from there being less infectious diseases around. They don't need the government to pay for their education, but they do benefit from being able to hire more well-educated emnployees, and those employees living in better housing, get sick less often and are more productive at work
You would have been happier if they'd spent a larger proportion of fighting wars?
