Funding War on the Q-T

According to the GAO:

As of December 2008, Congress has appropriated a total of about $808 billion primarily for GWOT operations since 2001. Of that amount, about $187 billion has been provided for fiscal year 2008 and about $65.9 billion has been appropriated for use in fiscal year 2009.

We now pay for wars off the military budget so we can pretend they don't cost anything. Think about that while standing in line for your unemployment check.
