The Congressional Budget Office is reporting that the cost of the Iraq War is less than Obama’s economic stimulus program:

“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.  via FOXNews.com – CBO: Eight Years of Iraq War Cost Less Than Stimulus Act.”

This report comes as the President this morning pushed for even more “stimulus” for the economy asking for more spending, all the while our economy continues to decline.

Does Obama get it?  Does he really believe that we can spend our way out of this?

Stop the spending and big-government bailout programs.  Create tax incentives and get out of the way for business entrepreneurship and innovation.
