Despite record unemployment, Congress votes to spend taxpayer money on war

With real unemployment at around 22% and the recent admission that Goldman Sachs gave billions of dollars of the ‘bailout’ money they received from taxpayers to “overseas banks, hedge funds and pensions“, how can Congress possibly vote to spend another $37 billion of taxpayer money on wars that only create more enemies for the US? Will Congress ever stop selling out the America people?

Not only was the new war spending bill approved by the House, there was also a domestic spending package originally attached to the bill (which ‘contained a variety of domestic spending measures, including $10 billion for a fund to avoid layoffs of teachers, $5 billion for Pell Grants for low-income college students and $1 billion for a program to help teenagers and young adults get summer jobs’ ) that was cut from the approved version.
