$70 Billion More Reasons to Vote Kerry

What we could do with that $70 bil at home...

BushCo To Request $50 - $75 Billion for Iraq:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Bush administration, faced with a growing insurgency and record fuel costs, plans early next year to seek $50 billion to $75 billion in emergency funding for military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, administration and congressional officials said on Tuesday.

The White House Office of Management and Budget said it was premature to discuss the size of the upcoming supplemental spending request, which would bring total U.S. funding for military operations and reconstruction efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan to as much as $280 billion.
Hopefully, it will be rather difficult for the Bush administration to make a such a request from the inside of Allenwood Prison.
