Congressman John Murtha (another person the rabid right loves to hate) has posted on his website the amount of money we are actually spending on George’s war in Iraq. It’s pretty astounding.
We are spending $8 billion a month in Iraq. That equates to $2 billion a week, or $267 million a day, or $11 million an hour.
Congressman Murtha goes on to list just some of the things that we could accomplish with this amount of money. Check it out.
