A Fool and His Money: House Passes War Spending Bill

 

Well, that was quick.  The House of Reps passed the spending bill that included the $70 billion for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.  This probably won’t be the last war spending bill we pass before the end of ’08.  Bush asked for $196 billion, and at our current rate of spending $2 billion a week in Iraq alone, $70 billion is only going to last for so long.  Completely missing the point, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnel commented on the bill.

“It’s an undeniable fact — or, should I say, an inconvenient truth — that things are getting better in Iraq, and I think the American people are noticing,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, said Wednesday.

There is so much wrong with that statement, I’m not even going to start.  I wonder what we could do with that $2 billion a week here in the U.S.?
