    Well there is that.... 5.1 Trillion= Bush/ 983 Billion = Obama

     

    Very interesting chart showing the amount Bush contributed to the debt verses  Obama.

    The Iraq and Afghanistan wars will cost us probably three times what the chart shows. A huge factor will be the continuing medical costs for wounded soldiers. We now have the technology to keep most of these guys alive, but it's at tremendous cost.

    I agree. I do not think the number includes the reconstruction, VA benefits for hundreds of thousands for 40 years, military pensions, etc...
