This bill will probably pass in Senate tomorrow. You, your children and generations to come will pay for this. All taxes will be spent servicing this debt.

Cost of 5 years of Iraq war: $560 billion
Cost of this bill: $800 billion

It will be spent bailing out the same fraudsters who got us into this mess. Call your senator now and demand they vote against this! If you don’t, it will probably pass. If you care for your country and your children’s future, vote this video up.
