Hmm…you say that I am overstating the cost of our wars? Hell, I’m not even including the cost of our half war, Libya (two mill a day).
That counter that I posted gets their numbers from the funding that has been requested by the President and appropriated by Congress.
Your 140 billion seems to conflict with the $169.4 billion that was allocated on April 2011.Its kinda odd that you say 140 billion and congress would allocate $169.4 billion?
Just think, if we had the $2.5 billion cushion of the bush tax-cuts (an aside)has a nice ring to it doesn’t it? kinda like the Hoover depression eh?
Now where were we? Oh yes…the bush tax cuts would have been a nice cushion for the tail end of the great bush d..eh,er, recession. it surely would have saved our AAA rating.
I wonder what that will end up costing us in the long run, more than likely the cost will be much more than a tax hike, or eliminating the oil companies welfare benefits. So sad.
