A comrade at work recently asked me for information on the cost of the Iraq War. We both work in education and year in and year out its just cuts, cuts, cuts.
For example to date we could hire 11 million new teachers, or give 193 million Americans health care. Sounds pretty bad doesn’t it?
Well this morning he pointed out the irony that one corporate bail out costed more than a 7 year 2 front war in the middle east. The bailout would give us 11 1/2 million teachers, or 206 million Americans health care.
Try it for yourself. Its shameful, shameful indeed.
