The cost of War vs. Stimulus

Cost of War in Iraq & Afghanistan $1,070,064,542,199 (1.07 trillion)

Total cost of the stimulus package over $1.17 trillion

You do the math.

What do we see as the benefit of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan? And then ask what benefit have we gotten from the stimulus?

The war is actually a better deal for the money we have spent. At least we have seen some improvement in the war on terror and the fate of the Iraqi people. But we have seen nothing from Obama's stimulus package, it seems as if the money has just gone down a black hole. They can't even account for it all. Our economy still stinks and umemployment hasn't changed, the real estate market is sluggish, and businesses are hoarding cash. So who's policies are the better bargain?
