  •  This so infuriates me, but what is it that we can (4.00)
    do to stop the Republicans' looting of the U.S. Treasury.

    The $1.6 billion for propaganda is bad enough. But add to that the $7 billion windfall in royalties to the oil companies -- that already are making record profits off the backs of citizens scraping together change to pay higher gas/home fuel costs. And the $300 million worth of Katrina trailers sitting empty and left to sink in mud.

    That's what we know about, which alone would be a good start toward insuring the health of many millions of the uninsured. Oh, but that's an entitlement and entitlements are bad, bad, bad.

    Really Rep. Pelosi what can we do about this? Nothing sticks to these thieves of cronyism. They're running this country into the ground and it makes me wonder what Democrat in their right mind would want to be the next president.

    •  authorization (none)
      Was this expenditure authorized by congress? Or were these funds 're-programmed' to avoid Congressional oversight. You are supposed to be holding the pursestrings, why the hell didn't you know until now that this money was being spent?

      That's a scandal that needs investigation and more strict oversight in the future.

      George W. Bush does not want you to read the above...
