Funding for Iraq or Afghanistan?

Lynne: So...we'll spend MORE money in Afghanistan. Gee, aren't we trillions in debt?

Dontre: We save money when we leave Iraq.

Bragg: biden is doing a GREAT job of being combative but not looking like a bully. it's a fine line for a male politician to walk when debating a female politician. (ask rick lazio). his temperament and tone are pretty much spot-on in that regard.

Dontre: This part loses points with the country. 68% of them don't know where Iran and Iraq are.
