Why are you being modded down? The wars are almost entirely off budget. Maybe they'll make up for it with asset forfeitures..
They can't handle the truth. They believe in fictions written by some old lady who collected social security and received other government subsidies she railed against.
That's my guess.
But, yes, the US has an unfortunate tendancy, since the War of Independence, and the Civil War, continued to the present, of always fighting wars off budget. Which is where the budget deficits come from. Social Security pays for itself and has always had a surplus, and still does.
