    of course we are not using the money wisely. its kind of difficult the way the gov. works they over spend on everything even though they keep track of all of it. they buy things at triple the price its worth. and thats for everything. if they slowed down then it would be a little better. of course they are putting alot into the war although they could do with alot less. and even though we are in debt its not something like impeaching bush or changing up teh congress is gonna change. weve been in debt for a long time now tis gonna be a while before we get out( if we ever start working on it) of debt.

    MICHIERU RULES ALL

    Actually, the reason Clinton could reject bills is he, for a short time, had a line item veto. Bush does not have that. So, in order to make sure the government doesn't shut down, he must pass spending bills that are loaded with Pork. He really has no choice in the matter and congress knows it.

    Second, Bush does have a plan for the national debt and if all goes according to schedule, the debt will be reduced by 50% in 5 years (I believe those were the numbers). Either way, if you'll read back in the thread, your statement about Bush not having a defecate cutting plan has already been addressed.

    So is bush...The deficit for the Fiscal Year of 2005 was
    319 Billion. This fiscal year (which is not over) is 248 Billion. What does that mean? GW Bush has lowered the debt by 71 Billion dollars so far this year alone. That's pretty impressive considering the cost of the war and Katrina. So, how did he do it?

    The Bush Tax Cuts.

    Here's the Whitehouse press release link if you want to see it yourself.
