More for Wars

Apparently freedom comes with an ever increasing price tag in the world's newest democracies. The White House plans to ask for $195 billion to support operations in the two theaters, Afghanistan and Iraq. This is an increase of over nearly $50 billion over prior 2008 estimates.

Compare that to Bush's proposed $5 billion increase in state run CHIP programs over a five year period. George stood on his high horse twice this past week to threaten a CHIP veto. Yet, his mount is but a statue, fixing in place a system that already fails 47 million U.S. residents. President Bush fancies himself a rough rider, but it looks like the people are the ones with a rough road ahead. It may be time for more ads by Freedom Switch.
