New separate studies by Harvard and the federal government say that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan will end up costing U.S. taxpayers between $4 Trillion and $6 Trillion.
So how come George W. Bush fired Army Generals who said that the costs would exceed $60 billion???
So how come George W. Bush handed out Tax Cuts for the first time ever in a time of war?
How come the Tea Party Idiots (TPI) refuse to now pay for the costs that enriched Republican war mongers?
How come the Tea Party wants the Republican party to hold the line and cut government further, including cutting our Medicare and selling U.S. assets in order for those Tea Party Idiots can avoid paying bills that are now due?
I once was astonished when camping at a spot in the High Sierras that I had camped in since I was a child. But now the camp ground had changed. It was filled with RV's.
RVs owned by a number of Tea Party Idiots.
I talked to these RV traveling Tea Party Idiots, and they were typical "Taxed Enough" morons who didn't want to pay another dime of taxes. Yet they were big supporters of our military and the war on terror.
Now the Tea Party in Washington DC has jacked up the Republican panty waists, and they have blocked a raise in the debt cap, even though we are not blocking future spending, the Tea Party Idiots are blocking paying of bills for the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and much more.
And now we have this stupid "Sequester" that scattershot hits everyone.
Meanwhile, the Rich have continued to do well, including the 1% that benefited mightily from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
We need a War Tax.
Every Economist with integrity says government needs to spend more now. Not cut, or sequester cut.
We need a War Tax now. Now!
And the irony of that camp ground meeting with Tea Party Idiots? My father and grandfather helped build those camp grounds during the Great Depression. Because the federal government, the spender of last resort, created the Civilian Conservation Corps, the WPA, and many other programs that boosted the US economy, stimulated job creation, and reversed an economic malaise.
Sorry for the rant, but I can no longer listen to these Tea Party Idiots, or the Panty Waist Republican toadies.
Have a nice day.
