$100 billion. Why? What are we fighting for?
Read over the weekend (at Defense Tech) that, to pay for new armored Humvees, the Pentagon is dipping into the soldiers' salary pool. Thus, when the fund for our soliders' pay runs short in May 2005, every last member of Congress will be forced to vote for the administraton's request for more funds, or be publicly smeared for not voting to pay soldiers.
Isn't that called blackmail? (Are these Bush's "Christian" values in action?)
That must explain why Congress is allowing Bush to bankrupt our country. To save their own jobs.
Makes me wonder exactly when our system of governance broke.
