the newly proposed spending plan of 2.9 trillion dollars for the 2008 for the united state, what do you think of that? they going to increase in defense spending by 11.3 percent and cutting back on $96 billion on medicare over the next five years. while $481.4 billion defense budget is requested. by the end of 2008 the war along will cost about $662 billion of dollars. the usa will be in so much debet is not even funny. have you heard, they spend tons of money over sea on rebuilding, they built an olympic size pool that cost millions of dollars, but it is not even being use. and you wonder where all other money are going. I had a friend who was in the army reserve told me that they used mecede benz for trucks and car in the army. so i wonder, with a 2.9 trillion dollars budget, where all the money is going and how much is going to helpping the us, with better school, medical insurance ect? what is your take on this.

Big country- big money- big problem You should not say "they", but "we" I think each person has the right to check the budget of his country, since it is publical.

What I can say, it is because of stolen elections. Bush family always wanted war. Is congress approving new budget? Is it anything we can do as citizens?
