War Is Making You Poor

War Is Making You Poor

Today the straight-talking Rep. Alan Grayson of Florida introduced the "War Is Making You Poor Act"
to highlight the obscene amounts being spent on Iraq and Afghanistan.
Grayson's bill would slash $159 billion "supplemental war funding,"
giving it as tax breaks to the rest of us, and insist the Pentagon rely
on its paltry $549 billion defense budget to pay for the ongoing
carnage. Rich. You can co-sponsor here or see a neat if distressing video on the hidden costs of war here.
