Politics, money, and war.

Saturday, September 18


Just because it's a good idea to look at numbers once in awhile. Let's take a peak at the recent history of the Department of Defense.

National Defense Authorization Act for:
FY 2005 $417.5 billion

FY 2004 DoD $401.3 billion

FY 2003 $393 billion

FY 2002 $318 billion (enacted in 2001 under Bush)

FY 2001 $310 billion (enacted in 2000 under Clinton)
The above do not include the supplemental spending bills. For instance, the supplemental spending bills for Iraq now total $185 billion dollars.

That's alot of cha-ching.
