WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A new study by congressional Democrats says "hidden costs" have driven the price of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to about $1.5 trillion (726.4 billion pounds), The Washington Post reported on Tuesday.

That figure is nearly double the $804 billion the White House has spent or requested, according to the report by the Democratic staff of Congress's Joint Economic Committee, which examines the hidden costs of the wars, the Post said.

According to the panel, the hidden costs include higher oil prices, the expense of treating wounded veterans and interest payments on money borrowed to pay for the wars, the newspaper said.


:roll: :roll: :roll:
Now we know why they have no money for their veterans and injured. `Let them live homeless, broken and useless` is the motto our leaders give to the returning war veteran. Why we poor engage in this abuse year after year escapes me. People must be awful lonely and desperate to do this to each other, so some may advantage themselves over the many.

People make no cents when dollars are changing hands. Why not admit it`s your god and get real. In god we trust- the rest PAY.
