The United States has spent something just short of $8 trillion on security (military, homeland security and Iraq and Afghanistan) since 2001. The increase in the deficit during that period? About $8.2 trillion.
Factor in the Wall Street/Bank bailout a few years ago and spending for every thing else actually went down.
Gotta watch those welfare moms, the lazy unemployed, shiftless Medicaid recipients and illegal aliens sucking up all our tax dollars.
