    Federal Spending Was on ‘Starvation Diet’ During Bush Years, Says Democratic Senator

    CNSNews.com - Federal Spending Was on ?Starvation Diet? During Bush Years, Says Democratic Senator

    (CNSNews.com) - Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) said yesterday that some of the spending in the $819-billion stimulus passed by the House of Representatives last week represented important federal spending priorities needed to “make-up for a starvation diet under the Bush Administration.”
    “I do think that there was some spending in the bill that was makeup for a starvation diet under the Bush administration, some important priorities of our party; frankly, of the American people,” said McCaskill. “And the question is does it belong in the stimulus bill or does it belong in the appropriations bill? I think some of the money that we cut in the compromise to get the votes that we, that we have was, in fact, spending that more appropriately should go in an appropriations bill.”
    Under the “starvation diet” imposed by the Bush Administration, the annual federal budget grew by 1.32 trillion.
    What the hell is she smoking?
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Too much.

    They're piling on the usable quotes for 2010.
    We've got a good selection already.

    I hope the next election unleashes a series of Willie Horton type financial ads against the leftists. Hard hitting, accurate, unapologetic.

    It will only work if people care about government spending. Since a large portion of the population don't pay any income taxes at all, I'd guess they won't give a rip about it, especially if some of that loot comes their way.
