What our federal tax dollars COULD go to instead of funding the Iraq and Afghanistan wars

According to the National Priorities Project (NPP), as of 4/28/09, taxpayers in Wisconsin have paid $13.2 billion for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. According to the NPP, this could have paid for other things, such as health care for 8,536,735 people for one year, or 230,972 Elementary School teachers for one year, or 1,968,551 scholarships for university students for one year. Find out what taxpayers in YOUR state have spent on these wars, and what else your state could have gotten with the same amount of money, at: http://www.nationalpriorities.org/tradeoffs
