It's the economy, stupid

"Douglas Holtz-Eakin, Mr. McCain’s chief economic adviser and a former director of the Congressional Budget Office, said the benefits of success in Iraq dwarfed the $150 billion annual cost. He also said that if the war and the personal and corporate tax cuts that Mr. McCain advocated added to the federal deficit and debt, so be it." - New York Times

Our national debt is skyrocketting, our economy is in a near recession, gasoline is $4.27 a gallon and we shouldn't worry about the budget? We shouldn't worry about the Iraq ware? A war we can't win? And please won't someone think about those poor corporate giants and the tax cuts they can't afford to lose.


That's a lot of Benjamins

"If you had a padded expense account that allowed you to spend $1 million dollars a day on whatever you wanted, it would take you 1,918 years to spend as much as we've spent on Iraq and Afghanistan through March 2008 (approximately $700 billion)." - Iraq Insider
