Iraq is Broke & You Have to Pay for It
Peter Van Buren, We Meant Well (Blog), Apr 2 2016

The next time a candidate or reporter asks during a debate about education or healthcare, “But how are you going to pay for that?” I would like the person being questioned to respond, “The same way we find money to pay for Iraq.” So maybe it would just be better for Flint, Michigan to claim it is under attack by ISIS instead of just being poisoned because no one has the money to fix the rotting Pindostani infrastructure. Each month, Iraq’s government pays out nearly $4b in salaries and pensions to the military and a bloated array of corrupt public-sector workers, but it is bringing in only about half that as crude oil prices plunge. Some Iraqi officials and analysts say the government might struggle later this year to pay the seven million people on the public payroll, which could trigger mass unrest. As a sign of the times, Iraqis are facing more nominal charges every day. For example, public hospitals which have long treated Iraqis free-of-charge (did you get that, you Pindo apes? “free-of-charge”? – RB), have introduced fees, even for those visiting sick relatives. For Iraq, the decline comes in the midst of an already destabilizing war. There are bills for reconstructing flattened cities destroyed for freedom, and assistance for the 3.3 million Iraqis who have been internally displaced over the past two years, with more expected to come. So, some good news, at least for Iraq: Pindostan is stepping in with Pindo creeple money, to make sure the country can continue military spending while it seeks international loans. While there is apparently no way anyone can conceive of to pay for fixing the rotting Pindostani infrastructure, making higher education affordable, reducing healthcare costs or any of those other icky socialist thingies, there is money for Iraq! Takeaway: No one really knows how much creeple money Pindostan has already spent in Iraq, but it is way over two trillion dollars.
