Congress Gives Bush $200 Billion More For War
Congress has given President Bush $200 billion more dollars to continue the Iraq war and maintain U.S. military presence in Afghanistan.
When you think about all the good that money could have done in America, it’s a crying shame. Think of the number of schools, universities, hospitals, low income housing and homeless shelters that could have been built for that money.
Instead, it’s just $200 billion dollars down the drain in a never ending war. It’s like a bad movie that refuses to end.
House passes $162B for wars in Iraq, Afghanistan
WASHINGTON (AP) — The House has voted to provide $162 billion for President Bush to carry out U.S. military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan through the end of his term.
The 268 to 155 vote would bring to more than $600 billion the amount provided by Congress for the war in Iraq since it started five years ago. For operations in Afghanistan, it comes to almost $200 billion, according to congressional analysts.
