EDIT you are right, bush suspended spending for our basic America, he cut money from things no other president ever has and it was not even to help our country balance a budget or get ahead in any way, it is even said bush took money that would have gone to rebuilding and repairing yher levys in Louisiana so when Katrina hit we were screwed.
Local and state govts. are taking a day off a week to save money, state and federal parks are loosing and u r right people claiming the socialists are in control.
Welfare needs has jumped to record levels and people who hated people who get welfare will have to decide if their family is important enough for them to swollow thei pride.
Republicans did nothing in their last year to help our countries situation, no ideas thoughts bush just slipped out and now they just panic and complain when they should be a part of solutions, they had their chance and did nothing now they should lead follow or get out of the way.
sorry but the iraq war is well over 1 trillon, 200 billion was just the first year.
