    The war in Afghanistan. 80% of it under a Nobel Peace Prize winning president :sdance:

    FT -- The Afghanistan war, the longest overseas conflict in American history, has cost the US taxpayer nearly $1tn and will require spending several hundred billion dollars more after it officially ends this month, according to Financial Times calculations and independent researchers.

    Around 80 per cent of that spending on the Afghanistan conflict has taken place during the presidency of Barack Obama, who sharply increased the US military presence in the country after taking office in 2009.

    Well, in actuality, we spend about a trillion dollars every five years just paying on the interest of our national debt. And that figure is rapidly accelerating. By 2020 we could be spending $1T each year.

    It takes us about 12 years to spend a trillion on food stamps.

    Figure it takes about 7 years to spend a trillion at the VA.

    And how much of ARRA was intended to fund "shovel ready" jobs projects?

    So yeah, "all of the above" isn't as far off as you might think. ;)
