But destroying Iraq is so much more important!

About $5.6 billion a month to dig a deeper hole in Iraq, while people here are about to freeze to death.

From the WSWS:
Some meteorologists are projecting temperatures three degrees lower than average east of the Mississippi from December through February.
In Michigan, where 80 percent of households are heated exclusively with natural gas, monthly heating bills are expected to increase by as much as $65 a month, bringing average monthly bills to over $200. Advocates for the working poor have voiced concerns that this increase atop an already thin and burdened social safety net will leave tens of thousands in the state without heat.
