Three Trillion Dollars Not Spent on Education, Healthcare, Etc.

According to Linda Bilmes and Joseph Stiglitz book, The Three Trillion Dollar War, the only ones who benefit from this war are the oil companies and the defense contractors.

This is what we've gotten from having an oil man and a defense contractor in office.

Shouldn't we then be informed about the income earned by the close family members of Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney through their investments in these industries?

Given the completely irreponsible economics of this unnecessary war, it becomes even more rude when those who are losing their homes are chastized for their difficulties.

Who is paying for the war? Certainly not those who are so wealthy that they are further blessed with tax cuts.
