Big spenders just don't get it!

From Bob Herbert in the New York Times:

We can go to war in Iraq and Afghanistan . . . But we can’t seem to build a railroad tunnel to carry commuters between New Jersey and New York.

Why do big spenders not realize that it's BECAUSE we're at war in Iraq and Afghanistan that we can’t afford to build a railroad tunnel to carry commuters between New Jersey and New York.

Maybe if the anti war presidential candidate Herbert supported in 2008 had kept his word, and ended those wars, we would be able to afford our domestic needs.

As a matter of fact, that was the platform Obama ran on - - end foreign wars and spend the money on our needs at home.
