Cut Afghan budget, not health care funds

Our government is open again, at least for a little while. In a few short months Congress will be at it again and it is likely that the rest of America will once again suffer while they play political games.

Americans have spoken. Health care for Americans is evil and must go or government may shut down again. Seems to me more Americans would rather defund the Afghan war than health care.

While Congress debates which programs benefiting Americans should be reduced or eliminated, have they considered cutting any of the 80 percent of the Afghan budget we provide, and use the savings to rebuild America? My guess is probably not.
