"On Katrina, Bush said he would work with Congress to 'make real cuts' in non-security spending to help in rebuilding the Gulf Coast. 'The private sector will be the engine that drives the recovery of the Gulf Coast,' he said. But he said the nation will continue to spend whatever it takes to support U.S. troops in Iraq."
This really irks me. Although I agree the those in the armed services need support, there are plenty of other, non-Iraq projects going on that can be cut as well as non-military spending. The first politician that offers up their pet project for sacrifice will get my vote .
