Didnt Biden vote for both wars??? Uh..........so he put two wars on credit cards?
That's not the point.
In the past, wars were paid for with tax increases during war time.
For the Iraq invasion, Bush lowered taxes.
Another difference is that military contracts during war no longer puts people to work. The employees were already in place.
That is exactly the point, as per the debate...
“By the way, they talk about this great recession like it fell out of the sky–like, ‘Oh my goodness, where did it come from?’” --- “It came from this man voting to put two wars on a credit card, at the same time...”
“I was there, I voted against them,” --- “I said, no, we can’t afford that.”
Biden voted for the Afghanistan resolution on Sept. 14, 2001 which authorized “the use of United States Armed Forces against those responsible for the recent attacks launched against the United States.”
And on Oct. 11, 2002, Biden voted for a resolution authorizing unilateral military action in Iraq.
But he said otherwise during the debate!
