The War In Afghanistan Cost America $300 Million Per Day For 20 Years, With Big Bills Yet To Come

 Just think what Americans could have had instead for that? 


In the 20 years since September 11, 2001, the United States has spent more than $2 trillion on the war in Afghanistan. That’s $300 million dollars per day, every day, for two decades. Or $50,000 for each of Afghanistan’s 40 million people. In baser terms, Uncle Sam has spent more keeping the Taliban at bay than the net worths of Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Bill Gates and the 30 richest billionaires in America, combined.

Sometimes, Matt, you can make a Happy Meal cry :(

Anyways, he is right, if both Rs and Ds use the "big bills yet to come" excuse to cut back on government spending.
