    Both points are debateable - my point was that the fact the wars were not funded in the defense budget means, literally, nothing.

    Obama called Bush 'unpatriotic' for in his words....



    Now you tell me how, or why we shouldn't apply his own words here to what he is doing?

    So... did you fail US Government, or have you just not made it that far in school?
    The SENATE, not CONGRESS, voted 98-0.

    So, again, when Congress unanimously votes to continue military spending almost as much as the rest of the world combined - please let me know.

    In your laughing you evidently missed the bill has already passed in the GOP controlled House. Its a done deal!

    So the GOP can stick their fake concern about deficit spending where the sun don't shine!

And all along the way we need more entitlements, no spending cuts, god forbid, we need more entitlements and free stuff. The people demand more entitlements and free stuff.
    It seems they're hoping for some trickle down economics, but it only trickles down to the Presidential cronies.

    Yeah, they cut $4 billion. What's that? About 15 minutes of spending?

    Both parties win, but not the American people.
