How Much Are You Paying For War?

Probably more than you think. Go to the Afghan War Calculator and you can see approximately how much of your earnings this year went to pay for the war in Afghanistan.

And then, of course, don't forget to factor in the money you're paying to bomb Libya and the on-going war technical assistance provided to Iraq.

But if you think this is a lot, remember, upwards of a tens of cents of your yearly earnings are going to egregious wastes like National Public Radio and k-12 education, so maybe if we completely eliminate those things we can start cutting into this war debt...
