    I always admit when I am wrong, in this case I am not wrong, I agreed with you that defense spending isn't mandatory it is discretionary but I support paying the troops. As for diverting Federal Funds, do you understand where federal funds come from? You read the headlines but never read the article. I live in a Houston suburb and can tell you that you ought to be worrying more about your own state and its problems vs. TX. What TX does with the federal dollars allocated to the state of TX is of no concern to you.

    Thank you. I was wondering how it was that the last 3 Republicans were so bad at creating jobs. Now I know. They frighten the jobs away with their voices. Interesting.
    You do know that twice as many jobs were created during Democratic Administrations than during Republican ones even though the GOP held office longer. Coincidence? I think not.

    You have been demolished 1000's of times over the years at DP.

    And all you ever do, is run away for awhile and come back only to repeat the same lies you were telling before.

    I have seen no evidence that you are capable of thinking at all and have no idea what you have just posted, a chart that makes you look foolish that has no relevance to the economic conditions today.

    Yes you were, you claimed that defense spending is "required", ie, mandatory:

    I said only a small portion is mandatory, which you agreed is correct....meaning you were incorrect in stating it was mandatory.

    Yes, from FEDERAL taxes....and that is the point. Texas uses fed dollars to pay for the uninsured in Tx, some you denied in the other thread.

    Then why don't you find out what the state did with the money?

    No laws violated

    Peters said federal officials questioned the arrangement when it first began, but were unable to deter Texas because no regulations or laws were violated. Even today there is no requirement that the reimbursed money be used for a specific purpose, said Teresa Coughlin, health policy expert at the Urban Institute in Washington, D.C.

    State Sen. Tommy Williams, R-The Woodlands, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, said the federal money helps the state support the three hospitals. "State appropriations to the state-owned hospitals are used to draw down federal funds," Williams said. "The degree to which general revenue benefits allows the state to afford its support of these institutions."
    You people really have a sickness, looking for gotcha politics. You just aren't smart enough to handle the challenge
