What If They Gave a War And Nobody Paid?

President Bush has asked Congress for another $81.9 billion for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, boosting the total price to over $300 billion. Considering there are 295,475,148 people in the United States, this comes to $1015.31 per man, woman, and child. So far. At the federal minimum wage of $5.15 per hour, you’d have to work 197 hours — nearly five weeks — to earn enough to chip in your share. (NOTE: Actual time required for payback may vary according to your salary, trust fund, offshore bank account, and party affiliation.)
