US WARS!
Direct costs, and still climbing !!

A Marine Corps M1 Abrams tank patrols a Baghdad street after its fall in 2003 during Operation Iraqi Freedom.The costs of the 2003-2010 Iraq War are often contested, as academics and critics have unearthed many hidden costs not represented in official estimates. The most recent major report on these costs come from Brown University in the form of the Costs of War project,[1] which said the total for wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan is at least $3.2-4 trillion.[1] The report disavowed previous estimates of the Iraq War's cost as being under $1 trillion, saying the Department of Defense's direct spending on Iraq totaled at least $757.8 billion, but also highlighting the complementary costs at home, such as interest paid on the funds borrowed to finance the wars and a potential nearly $1 trillion in extra spending to care for veterans returning from combat through 2050.[1] An update in 2013 topped this at US$6 trillion.[2]

Those figures are dramatically higher than typical estimates published just prior to the start of the Iraq War, many of which were based on a shorter term of involvement. For example, in a March 16, 2003 Meet the Press interview of Vice President Dick Cheney, held less than a week before the Iraq War began, host Tim Russert reported that "every analysis said this war itself would cost about $80 billion, recovery of Baghdad, perhaps of Iraq, about $10 billion per year. We should expect as American citizens that this would cost at least $100 billion for a two-year involvement."[3]

The U.S. has lost a number of pieces of military equipment during the war. The following statistics are from the Center for American Progress;[14] and they are only approximations that also include vehicles lost in non-combat-related accidents as of 2009.

Land equipment[edit]80 M1 Abrams tanks
55 M2 Bradley fighting vehicles
20 Stryker wheeled combat vehicles
20 M113 armored personnel carriers
250 Humvees
500+ Mine clearing vehicles, heavy/medium trucks, and trailers
10 Assault Amphibious Vehicles[15][16]
Air equipment[edit]Main article: List of aviation accidents and incidents during the Iraq War
109 Helicopters
18 Fixed-Wing Aircraft
In June 2006, the Army said that the cost of replacing its depleted equipment tripled from that of 2005.[17] As of December 2006, according to government data reported by the Washington Post, the military stated that nearly 40% of the armyís total equipment has been to Iraq, with an estimated yearly refurbishment cost of $US 17 billion. The military states that the yearly refurbishment cost has increased by a factor of ten compared to that of the pre-war state. As of December 2006 approximately 500 M1 tanks, 700 Bradley Fighting Vehicles and 1000 Humvees are awaiting repair in US military depots.[18]

If anyone out there finds one of these missing government items please return to the war crime fund of Bush, Cheney,Rice, Rumsfeld and Powell.

DNC sends email defending Obama from impeachment possibility
12/28/2013
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) sent out a paranoid email Saturday evening urging supporters to vote for Democrats so that Republicans canít impeach President Obama.
The email, subject line ďImpeachment,Ē was sent to Obama for America supporters, imploring them to contribute to the DNCís 2014 efforts....
The DNC, which recently expanded its political tactics to include boycotting independent news outlets, previously supported the last president to be impeached: Bill Clinton.

ObamaCare approval drops to record low
December 23, 2013
Support for the Affordable Care Act has dropped five percentage poinDeets in a month to a record low, according to a CNN/ORC poll released Monday.
The poll finds that just 35 percent of the public supports the law, compared to 40 percent in late November.
The drop in support indicated in the poll could be particularly troubling to the Obama administration because almost all of it came from women, whose opposition rose from 54 percent to 60 percent in a month.
The administration has tried to highlight advantages for women, such as free preventative care that covers mammograms.

I swear you Dems donít understand MATH or COSTS

2011 US federal budget 63% of the total federal budget were checks written to individuals that the Government receives no services from, more then the cost of the war that year That does not include Social Security checks. Whatís that budget 3.8 Trillion

2011 Welfare is the largest cost to U.S. taxpayers more then the War which is the Second largest cost is U.S. budget.. Third largest cost in U.S. budget is money borrowed from other countries which is mostly from China . War cost can be cut back by the billions. Let me see billions in cutbacks on welfare without riots breaking out

2011 Medicaid paid for 48% of U.S. Births

Dems welfare doesnít STOP at 15 Trillion since its inception. Look Skippy you can always stop a war and bring back soldiers let me see you TOUCH the Dems Welfare and cut that back!!!!

If I add the Real-estate values lost because of Dems Ghettos growing at alarming rates which is also in the Trillions and then add the COST to house Dems Criminals which 85% of the Crime in the U.S is committed by Dem voters

Why aren't you bitchen about THOSE on going forever COSTS!!!

So the question WHY are you Dems so STUPID in MATH and have Tunnel Vision

FYI building those tanks created Tax coffers into the Fed and local Gov which mathematically reduces your numbers

Dems Welfare is just the opposite.

A Look Back at Bush's Economic Missteps

Bush's Economic Mistakes
Bush's Budget Blunders

When President Bush took office in 2001, Republicans and Democrats in Washington had built a strong consensus on the need for fiscal responsibility. Bush blew that apart within a few months. With the country in a recession, a temporary return to deficits was inevitable. But Bush's tax cuts and spending increases ó and clear disdain for the pay-as-you-go approach that had brought deficits down in the 1990s ó brought a return to permanent deficits. These actions almost certainly didn't cause the current crisis, but they have left the Federal Government in a much weaker position to combat it

Doing a cost-benefit analysis on a war is awfully hard. There are just too many what-ifs. But the cost of invading and occupying Iraq has been staggeringly high ó whether you believe the $3 trillion figure of economists Linda Bilmes and Joseph Stiglitz or side with the Congressional Budget Office estimate of a mere trillion or two. It's the biggest part of the explanation for the yawning Bush-era budget deficits. So even if you think the war did bring benefits to the U.S., they would have to be pretty gigantic to justify the cost.

When Ronald Reagan slashed taxes on capital gains and high earners in the early 1980s, inflation was pushing the middle class into top tax brackets, financial markets had been stuck in a funk for 15 years and income inequality had been declining for almost five decades. Like him or not, the man's actions fit the times ó and the U.S. economy boomed for most of his two terms in office. Bush came to Washington facing almost diametrically opposing economic conditions, yet he offered up the same solutions as Reagan. Guess what: they weren't what the economy needed.

Cheney's Halliburton Made $39.5 Billion on Iraq War

The accounting of the financial cost of the nearly decade-long Iraq War will go on for years, but a recent analysis has shed light on the companies that made money off the war by providing support services as the privatization of what were former U.S. military operations rose to unprecedented levels.

Private or publicly listed firms received at least $138 billion of U.S. taxpayer money for government contracts for services that included providing private security, building infrastructure and feeding the troops.

Ten contractors received 52 percent of the funds, according to an analysis by the Financial Times that was published Tuesday.

The No. 1 recipient?

Houston-based energy-focused engineering and construction firm KBR, Inc.(NYSE:KBR), which was spun off from its parent, oilfield services provider Halliburton Co.(NYSE:HAL), in 2007.

The company was given $39.5 billion in Iraq-related contracts over the past decade, with many of the deals given without any bidding from competing firms, such as a $568-million contract renewal in 2010 to provide housing, meals, water and bathroom services to soldiers, a deal that led to a Justice Department lawsuit over alleged kickbacks, as reported by Bloomberg.

Who were Nos. 2 and 3?

Agility Logistics (KSE:AGLTY) of Kuwait and the state-owned Kuwait Petroleum Corp. Together, these firms garnered $13.5 billion of U.S. contracts.

As private enterprise entered the war zone at unprecedented levels, the amount of corruption ballooned, even if most contractors performed their duties as expected.

According to the bipartisan Commission on Wartime Contracting in Iraq and Afghanistan, the level of corruption by defense contractors may be as high as $60 billion. Disciplined soldiers that would traditionally do many of the tasks are commissioned by private and publicly listed companies.

Even without the graft, the costs of paying for these services are higher than paying governement employees or soldiers to do them because of the profit motive involved. No-bid contracting - when companies get to name their price with no competing bid - didn't lower legitimate expenses.(Despite promises by President Barack Obama to reel in this habit, the trend toward granting favored companies federal contracts without considering competing bids continued to grow, by 9 percent last year, according to the Washington Post.)

Funny. Total bullshit, but funny. I especially thought the "welfare costs more than the war" and "63 percent of the budget went to checks" for poor people was amusing.

I realize that complex concepts are difficult for you, but I have to try to get some data through that knowledge condom you dumbasses wear.

Welfare is our nation's SINGLE LARGEST PROFIT SECTOR, creating more jobs and more wealth than ANY other means, bar none.

What sets this nation apart? Why do immigrants want to come here? Where does 85 percent of all US employment come from? Small business. We are a nation of small business, and they created the greatest economy in the history of man, DESPITE nearly all of them failing within a year. But it doesn't matter here - bright people just start a new one. So tell me, how many small businesses would be started if failure meant STARVATION or HOMELESSNESS? Hard to tell, but certainly far fewer, and no one would be able to start and fail more than one. So what gives us this unequaled FREEDOM to become entrepreneurs and try and fail and try again?

Our safety nets. NOTHING would destroy our nation faster than abolishing the one tool we have to ensure ANYONE can try ANYTHING and still survive and feed their families, regardless of how it turns out.

Our welfare system creates more wealth for this nation than is measurable. To a tea bagger, that was greek and makes no sense. But to someone who has the capacity to understand risk and its interplay with economic principles, it makes perfect sense. By artificially reducing risk we create an environment where technology and innovation will flourish. And it just so happens that this nation started becoming the superpower it is the moment we stopped the practice of letting finances kill people. And it wasn't a coincidence.
