CBO Estimates War to Cost $2.4 Trillion

...divide by 300 million, and that works out to $8000 per man, woman, and child. What's that, roughly $30,000 per household? Yeah right, Republicans are for fiscal responsibility. Bush actually had the gall to veto an infrastructure bill (to build U.S. bridges, not Iraqi ones we blew up) because it was $5 billion instead of $4 billion, then tout his diligence against the frivolous spending of congress.
