Wars cost money

Time to start paying for them. 

Of course this will never pass out of the Senate, it may not even make it to the floor of the Senate for debate. The same Serious Centrists who are telling us that we can't afford healthcare will be leading the charge to defeat this measure. They're budget hawks when the issue is spending money to stimulate the economy in the midst of the greatest economic downturn in generations or corralling our spiraling healthcare costs while increasing access to basic care. When we're discussing blowing up brown people in far away countries, well that's free as far as the Serious Centrists are concerned.
