So how much is this foray into Syria going to cost?
A limited United States intervention in Syria would not require a supplemental appropriations bill from Congress, an Obama administration official told The Huffington Post on Wednesday.
The official’s assessment that a narrowly tailored operation could be paid for with “existing Department of Defense resources” was seconded by two high-ranking aides on Capitol Hill.
However, another Hill staffer argued that without a greater understanding of the operation, it would be impossible to settle on an exact price tag or means of payment.
“Who the f— knows what it will cost? It depends entirely on what happens,” said the staffer.
I’d write more, but I have to go to work and see how much more they’re cutting out of Head Start, IDEA, and Title II this year.
