    A whole $17M?
    Or is that, like, $16.5M rounded up?

    Oh dear, this meme. Clinton contained Saddam and Iran without spending $3T and invading, giving the region to Iranian hegemony. Bush accomplished all that in a couple years.

    Why is it that conservatives only know now to invade, spend trillions and assist our mortal enemies.

    By the way, what president armed Saddam? Wait for it, wait for it . . .

    98 - 0 vote on $631 billion dollars of new spending. So don't tell me anyone in Congress thinks we have a debt problem.

    That was the point.

    This only supports (as opposed to proves) the idea that no one in the Senate believes there's a debt problem.

    No it means that educated people realize that we have a longterm debt problem and a more pressing shortterm growth problem, and that solving the latter will help solve the former.

    Conservatives are like ER doctors who want to treat the diabetes of a patient who came in for injuries sustained in a truck accident.
