From the Washington Times: President Bush’s budget next week will show the new prescription drug program costs $540 billion over 10 years, more than one-third higher than the $400 billion estimate Congress used in passing the bill in November. “That really is a shocker,” said Robert L. Bixby, executive director of the budget watchdog Concord Coalition. “It’s a huge change. If a number like this had been floating around the Capitol last fall, it never would have passed.”
I’m shocked, shocked! Anyone want to take me up on a bet that after ten years of this program, the cost will be shown to have been 1.5 trillion? Let me see if I can put this in terms that the lowest common denominator – otherwise known as Teenage and Would-be Teenage America – can understand.
Democrats are like Christina Aguilera, aka Skaguilera. They’re sluts who do it because they like to. Republicans are like Britney Spears. They’re a little prettier, but they’re whores who do it in order to sell records/win elections. The Dirty Girl Theory of politics.
