Fiscal Consequences of 9/11 Pretext for War Leaves City Council Speechless

With data supplied from the National Priorities Project the Gainesville City Commission went "speechless" when confronted with the economic loss of $22 million/year as a consequence of accepting 9/11 as pretext for of a decade of war .

Local governments like to pretend that it's not their business to consider how national issues affect local economies even when Cities hire Washington lobbyists to peddle influence for federal handouts.

But when asked to respond to a comprehensive question on advocating a new 9/11 investigation to protect the local economy and the US Constitution, the entire commission chose to abandon their sworn oath of office.
