Sen. Bennet Says War Spending ‘Could’ve Fixed Every Water Project in America’
Bennet has tallied up the costs of tax cuts and interventions in the Middle East since 2001.
“That’s $12 or $13 trillion that we might as well have lit on fire,” the Colorado Senator said to Rick Newman during a recent interview for Yahoo Finance’s Meet the Candidate series. “We could’ve fixed every road and bridge in America. We could’ve fixed every single airport infrastructure project in America. We could’ve fixed every water project in America. We could’ve made Social Security solvent forever. We could’ve paid down our deficit.”
