That $6 Trillion could have bought us lots of bike paths, solar panels and high speed rail lines. But, no. Bush and his supporters had to start a war with a country that never did us any harm.
So how did $2T suddenly become $6T? I see a lot of numbers being thrown around in that article without any rationale. I call bull**** on this.
