800 Billion and Growing

We have now been at war in Afghanistan for 16 years and thanks to the recent announcement by Trump we will be there longer. The US government so far has spent $800 billion dollars on the war. A number that will keep going up.  "More than 2,200 US troops have been killed in Afghanistan, as well as thousands of allied forces. Tens of thousands of Afghan civilians and military have also died in the conflict." according to CNN


Hmmm, how could $800 billion dollars be more well spent?


NASA's budget is $18.5 billion so we could have massively expanded that and might have people walking  mars by now if we had spent 16 years focused on exploration. The national debt is $19 trillion dollars, so we could have paid a bit of that. US Debt ClockWe could expand healthcare to Americans.

Play the No Budget Drinking game. Yep, we have noticed things we do to repeat ourselves so we might as well make some fun out of it.

Republicans Fail Again to Repeal The Affordable Care Act

And yet again the Republican attempt to repeal the affordable care act and yet again they fail. But Don't let yourself think it's over, after all, this is only the 50 something attempt over the past 7 years to take healthcare away from people in order to give tax breaks to the rich. They will keep trying and eventually it might actually happen. 
I don't know about you, but I sure am glad my tax dollars have been getting spent paying their salaries to continue to talk about and vote on this repeal. Maybe they should take a break and vote themselves a pay raise for all the hard work they have been doing. It has been a few years since they last gave themselves a raise.
