The War in Iraq is costing us 12 billion every month. That is about $40 for every American. When I do the math, the war is costing my family $1,920 this year. I could think of a lot better ways to spend this.
By the way, this cost is not reflected in our government budget. It is "off the books." Our government is already going into debt about 2,000 per person each year, because they cut taxes when they did not have the money. When you add it up, this year my family will go into debt $10,000 just based on the government spending more than it takes in. I wonder when we will have to pay this off?
