The Weekly Standard's joke of the month:
UPDATE: Steve Benen tells
The price tag on the defense appropriations bill approved by the House last week was pretty stunning: $726 billion.
CORRECTION: "WEAKLY STANDARD"
Billy Kristol is so funny.
I think it's our long-term goal to make defense spending more than 80% of GDP so that it completely crowds out spending and taxes for any other purpose.
I know I will feel much safer when we have no functioning government, but we do have a military with a man, a missile, a bomber, and a tank on very street corner.
That's less than he spent on his victory splurge for his friends, AKA the Stimulus Bill.
"That's less than he spent on his victory splurge for his friends, AKA the Stimulus Bill."
Is the stimulus bill an annual, year-in year-out appropriation?
