What does it mean that we are even asking this question? We certainly didn't ask it in any meaningful way before we committted to the Iraq War - where we are spending billions monthly. One answer is, respectfully, "who gives a flip"!
Our dipshit president bulldozed his way right into the War before ANY questions could be asked, meaningful or otherwise. This is hardly the same situation (and I think it's a piss poor tactic to encourage this "spend first, figure out the money later" tactic because the cost just gets passed on to people who can hardly afford to be paying even more money to the government to begin with). And I think it's really strange to think the topic is so completely unworthy of discussion when you can open any thread on Reparations or any article on Reparations and see not only confusion over exactly who is going to pay for these Reparations but also no clear answers.
