President Bush calls the Democrat-controlled congress out on their spending gone wild.
Congress’ “budget calls for nearly $22 billion more in discretionary spending next year alone. … Yesterday one called this increase — and I quote — ‘a very small difference’ from what I proposed. Only in Washington can $22 billion be called a very small difference. And that difference will keep getting bigger. Over the next five years it will total nearly $205 billion in additional discretionary spending. That $205 billion averages out to about $112 million per day, $4.7 million per hour, $78,000 per minute. Put another way, that’s about $1,300 in higher spending every second of every minute of every hour of every day of every year for the next five years.”
Can’t blame this on the Republicans… So, what does the far left have to say about this, especially after their self-righteous attacks on spending last year?
