A Letter to the Editor from the Pittsburg Morning Sun-
On Tuesday, May 6, 2008, Congresswoman Nancy Boyda called on Nancy Pelosi and other leaders in Congress to stop charging American taxpayers for reconstruction projects in Iraq and to also insist the government of Iraq to assume ownership of all such projects and to take full responsibility for $153 million the United States spends per month on fuel in Iraq.
Boyda said "Five years and $45 billion dollars in money given to Iraq for the purpose of reconstruction is more than enough. It is time for the Iraqi government to step up and take some responsibility. Taxpayers are being hit with a double whammy — once at the pump and again with money we are giving to Iraq with no strings attached."
Thank you, Nancy Boyda, for pressuring Congress into action in terms of what the invasion of Iraq is costing American taxpayers.
