    Let me get this straight... Please correct me if I'm wrong.
    Add info if you have it.

    1) Continuation of Iraq War - $200 million per day
    2) Probable Bailout of Financial Institutions - $1 - $3 trillion
    3) Various and Sundry "Stimulus Packages" - $170 billion
    4) Tax Cuts - $500 billion - $1.7 trillion over 10 yrs.
    5) "Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran" - ??
  2. You are obviously confusing them with we "tax and spend liberals," who love to "spend like drunken sailors."

    At least we're not letting those welfare queens bleed us dry. ::)

    Anybody have an estimate on how much it would cost to bomb Iran?

    And we can do a best-case scenario of a short-term airstrike.

    I hope it's closer to a buck than 3 trillion bucks.

    What's the difference?

    It's not Fredo's money.

    If we need money, why don't we just print more? Duh. Problem solved. Move along.

    I got that 1-3 figure from the Krugman article in today's NYT.

    It's just an estimate. I suppose it could be as low as $500 billion.

    Please include prescription health care plan. Remember, no negotiation of prices was written into the bill.

    It's been a long time comin'
    It's goin' to be a long time gone.
    But you know,
    The darkest hour is always
    Always just before the dawn.
    And it appears to be a long, appears to be a long,
    Appears to be a long
    Time before the dawn.
