The Cost of War (Fun with Economics)

At an estimated cost of 533,821,000,000 dollars af of 15 May 08 around 2100 Pac time the budget for the war could have instead paid for....

almost all of the anticipated medical costs of every person in the country (15,600 per family based on article)

food for every person in the country with over a hundred billion left over (700 per family per month based on article)

tuition at a public four year college for 22,871,465 people for all four years of education (5,836 per year based on article)

And that's just the tip of the ice berg. So as gas prices rise, food prices rise, medical costs rise, and tuition cost rise remember, you do have someone to blame for your poverty and that someone is our government.

Regime change starts at home...
