$82 Billion, $82 Billion
Yes indeed, all 100 Senators voted yea for this latest installment to pay for the illegal invasion of Iraq. There must have been some celebrating at Halliburton as they will continue their profiteering with no-bid contracts to rebuild what we have destroyed. Amazing. Not one Senator voted no. Not one. I miss Paul Wellstone every day.
No demand for an exit strategy. No time line, no restrictions on the spending. Whoa Nelly! $82 billion taking the total well over $300 billion as we approach the 1600th combat death. Where is Gene McCarthy or Gaylord Nelson of today. Shame on the Senate.
