Hmmm. I'd be glad if the cost of recovery were only $50 billion to $100 billion. Compared to either the cost of the war or the size of the federal budget, that is very much a cost we can bear.

The next president will face a staggering bill
Bush has two budget cycles left, right? I think we'd have a run-rate by now, so would it be responsible (or just political) to wait?
The question might be how will McCain and the GOP field go on record for how to pay for the war 'recovery', if at all?
How will the cost be borne? Print more money?
Taxes will probably have to be raised to pay for Bush's folly.
Powell has just stated that Iraq is in a civil war. Mind you, he was talking at a business forum in the United Arab Emirates.Post a Comment
