This War Is Lost… 8 Years of Iraq War Cost Less Than Obama-Pelosi Failed Stimulus

In 2007, soon after the Bush Surge was introduced far left Senate Majority Leader told the American public that, “This war is lost.”

Well, the Bush Surge was a magnificent success…
But, Harry Reid’s Trillion dollar stimulus bill was a bust.

The CBO confirmed this week that the failed Pelosi-Obama stimulus bill cost more than the 8 year war in Iraq.
FOX News reported:

As President Obama prepares to tie a bow on U.S. combat operations in Iraq, Congressional Budget Office numbers show that the total cost of the eight-year war was less than the stimulus bill passed by the Democratic-led Congress in 2009.

According to CBO numbers in its Budget and Economic Outlook published this month, the cost of Operation Iraqi Freedom was $709 billion for military and related activities, including training of Iraqi forces and diplomatic operations.

The projected cost of the stimulus, which passed in February 2009, and is expected to have a shelf life of two years, was $862 billion.

The U.S. deficit for fiscal year 2010 is expected to be $1.3 trillion, according to CBO. That compares to a 2007 deficit of $160.7 billion and a 2008 deficit of $458.6 billion, according to data provided by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget.

The stimulus jobs cost taxpayers $195,000 each.

At least with the Iraq War we ousted an evil dictator, killed thousands of terrorists and established a democracy in the Middle East. The stimulus just left us broke.
