Mass destruction or 1,165 units of affordable housing? You make the call!

According to the good folks at the National Priorities Project, D.C. taxpayers have spent $2 billion on the war in Iraq (including our share of the $100 billion the president is requesting now.) With those funds, NPP calculates, we could have built 1,165 units of affordable housing.

This leaves me speechless. No need to pontificate, given all the low and moderate income folks being pushed out of D.C. by rising housing costs. See your state's calculus here.
