$12 billion per month

That’s how much the US is paying each month to fund the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, with most of that – $10 billion – going to Iraq. The GOP couldn’t find money to address the health care crisis nor was it financially possible to take action against global warming but somehow funding a war against Iraq, which had no connection to 9/11, was possible. Worse still, the earlier predictions for spending were not even close.

How many years will this financial burden hover over the economy?
