whole story Even the conservatives are starting to question why discretionary spending has leaped by a third. It's depressing that the administration wants to hold discretionary spending growth to four percent, except for defense and security of course. The only ones winning the war on terror are the defense-related corporations. The hype is there only to keep the dollars flowing. How long will the American people fall for the crap being put out by the administration? And then there's the line about repealing tax cuts will result in an average $1500 increase in taxes. Is this kinda like the average $1500 dollar cut everyone got? Did anyone here get $1500? I certainly didn't. I thought that "average" myth was dispelled ages ago. Just more of the same BS from those in charge.
