$3 Trillion Price Tag Left Out As Bush Details His Agenda ( “A staple of Bush’s stump speech is his claim that his Democratic challenger, John F. Kerry, has proposed $2 trillion in long-term spending, a figure the Massachusetts senator’s campaign calls exaggerated. But the cost of the new tax breaks and spending outlined by Bush at the GOP convention far eclipses that of the Kerry plan. ”

Basic economics lesson for Mr. Bush: without income (uh, taxes, moron) there can be no outcome. You can’t spend money you don’t have. Why do I have to balance my budget, if Bush doesn’t have to balance his.

Oh wait, I meant to say “if Bush doesn’t have to balance ours.” Because it’s NOT his money he’s fooling around with here. It’s ours. And he’s giving it away to his friends.

I just finished reading Bushwhacked, by Molly Ivins and Lou Dubose. It’s excellent. Read it. Get mad. Then GO VOTE!
