Obama's Budget

Obama's budget is going to cut heating assistance to low income Americans by 50%.

After Patrick told me this, he asked me to find out the daily cost of the wars against Iraq and Afghanistan. The 2011 budget figures work out to 470 million dollars a day.

Per the Cost of War website, the two wars have cost 1 trillion 152 billion dollars to date. We could have rebuilt this country, instead of destroying two distant countries that were no threat to us.
