Money not well spent

We can't get money for cat 5 levees, but the contractors in Iraq sure seem to not have any problems getting money from the feds. So, how much is the war costing us?

$2,000,000,000.00......a week!

I have a hard time picturing how much that is, so I broke it down a little.

$285,714,285.74 per day
$11,904,761.90 per hour
$198,412.70 per minute

I would have to work for six weeks to clear what it costs us as a country to run this war every second. Helped me put it into perspective a bit, you?
