80 billion

Bush to Seek About $80 Bln for Military Operations

Let's see if the Democrats have an ounce of sense. They should use the request for 80 billion to launch a critique of how the money has been spent so far.

They should plainly demand to know EXACTLY where this money is going. They should ask why they have approved 120 billion - so far - and why the troops are digging for scrap metal to armor their vehicles.

Personally, I suspect that we are throwing money down a great big hole, and it's lining the pockets of criminals. And it's up to the Democrats to demand that the White House not just ask for money, but actually account for it.
