Republicans want to hide the cost of THEIR war

The Republicans in Congress are bleating on about how 'inappropriate' it is to disclose the cost of the war or terra.

Sen. Sam Brownback (R-Kan.) and Rep. H. James Saxton (R-N.J.) attacked the report on "hidden costs" of the wars, calling its methodology flawed and asserting factual errors. The report, issued yesterday, said the war has cost nearly double the $804 billion in appropriations and requests for war funding thus far.

Brownback, who is developmentally retarded, can be excused for not, you know, getting it. Saxton on the other hand is being deliberately obtuse. Even he knows that just adding up the supplemental appropriations will not give you the accurate number. You have to count health care costs for the soldiers over the next 70 years. YES 70.

Quit being dumbasses. This thing is going to cost taxpayers more than $1.5 TRILLION and that's if we stop and cut all funding today. We could rebuilt our educational system, our infrastructure and expanded health insurance to every American for that money. Well, we COULD have. Instead, we wasted it on Cheney's effort to compensate for his inability to maintain an erection.

Which makes Republicans the biggest wasteful spenders in the history of the United States of America.

Shut up, Sam. I'll be paying off your this debt you rang up LONG after you're dead and buried. I'd appreciate it if you'd shut the fuck up and retire from the Senate. You've done enough damage to this country.
