"I want to recommend a website I discovered today run by a group called
National Priorities Project: www.nationalpriorities.org/home/3.html
Their mission: "National Priorities Project analyzes and clarifies federal data so that people can understand and influence how their tax dollars are spent." (which may sound dull, but isn't….)
They have an excellent page that shows the cost of the war in Iraq–a running ticker–that allows you to break it down to how much this is costing your State, City or county.
(Or on their main page go the yellow box on the right called "Quick Hits" and click on "The Cost of War".)"
