Let me see if I am clear on all this...
Me and my fellow taxpayers in Raleigh are already on the hook for $724.6 million in approved spending for the war on Iraq. That money could provide 345,581 children with health care for a year. That amount could more than cover the estimated 260,000 North Carolina children who are uninsured.
The total cost for this blunder of a war is likely to exceed. $3 trillion. That's $3,000,000,000,000, once you account for restocking our military, providing lifetime benefits to veterans and surviving families, and recovering our economy.
But now fiscally responsible Republicans are coming to a tax-and-spend liberal like me to ask for more money?
