The media, conservatives and the democratic deficit hawks are telling America that the cost of reforming America’s health care system better not add one red cent to the deficit. Why doesn’t the librul media explain to America that we are paying 10 billion dollars a month on two wars that Americans hate?
I asked Rep. Alan Grayson on a live chat on C&L how much the US of A spends each month on the wars, and he answered thus:
The appropriated cost is around $10 billion a month, which is enough to pay for the entire health care plan by itself. But that doesn’t include the future health care costs for injured American soldiers, which is staggering. Nor the cost to the Iraqis or Afghans, of course.
Our soldiers get killed or maimed by one war that has been botched by Bush and we’re no closer to a solution in Afghanistan after eight years of occupation and another war that Bush lied us into known as Iraq. The media is uncomfortable whenever we use the word “lie,” for some reason. I wish they could give us a truer description of what happened, don’t you?
Yet, the media never bothers to explain to us how much money we are actually spending each month that does NOTHING to help Americans. Well, it does fund the military complex and mercenaries like Blackwater, but why the f*&k does it matter to these budget freaks if we have to spend some jack to save the health-care system in the long run? Have they completely decided that America is staying in both countries endlessly and the costs for sustaining these wars is a non-issue?
