[SDCPJ] Answer to the Federal Budget Crisis

Is Washington serious about the federal budget?  The $38.5 billion in cuts will deprive Americans of desperately needed health, education and housing; but will not even dent the massive federal budget or deficit. 

 

Want to solve the federal budget?  By far, the largest discretionary spending by Washington is military and war. 

 

As of April 9, 2011, 8:00 PM Pacific time, your tax dollars at work destruction: 

 

Cost of U.S. Wars Since 2001

$1,177,836,071,473

Cost of War in Iraq

$783,936,300,770

Cost of War in Afghanistan

$393,899,770,702

AND THIS INCREASES AT $326,000 EVERY MINUTE.  THIS WILL EAT THROUGH $38.5 BILLION IN 82 DAYS.  And this does not include Libya. 

 Let your Congress representative know: You want an end to this.
