Biden Speaks Out on Iraq

Senator Joe Biden at a speech for the National League of Cities raised awareness again on Iraq. This time he raised a different issue about Iraq than why we went there or how we are going to get out. According to Nicole Gaudiano of the Delaware News Journal, “Biden asked the audience to imagine how the $100 billion spent in Iraq this year, incentives for oil companies and tax cuts for the wealthy could be redirected to domestic programs, including health care for all 9 million uninsured children, border security, education and community development programs, and community policing grants.” In addition Biden still seems to be the only candidate with a clear strategy in Iraq. Biden continues to use his foreign policy experience to his advantage and seems to impress the audience with each speech that he gives. To read more on this article click here.
