The cost of the war is just about to break $15 billion a month.
Let me say that again: $15 BILLION DOLLARS a MONTH!! That means in two months time we will have spent the entirety of the cost the expansion to SCHIP that Bush vetoed a little while back. Of course we couldn’t afford that expansion. We’re busy wasting it on the war. Too bad it only buys us two months worth of expenses.
Oh, and as of December 26th we’re up to 3,900 dead American soldiers to boot. Happy New Year!
