In the Senate, legislation giving doctors $247 billion in increased Medicare fees over the next decade nearly collapsed on Tuesday amid bipartisan concern over growing federal deficits. Meanwhile, in the House Democratic leaders have cut the cost of their healthcare bill from more than $1 trillion to $871 billion over the next decade
TomDispatch.com.,It says, “According to [Department of Defense] projections, the baseline military budget—just the bare bones, not those billions in war-fighting extras—is projected to increase by 2.5% each year for the next 10 years. In other words, in the next decade the basic Pentagon budget will grow by at least $133.1 billion.” To date, Americans have paid $915 billion for the US wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. That’s as of September 30th of this year. In the fiscal year 2010 budget, we will pay $704 billion in military expenditures; $130 billion of that is for the US wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The politicians are all preaching everything's hunky-dory, everything is recovering, everything is good, then you know they've got to be lying. Somebody's lying, because it couldn't be that good with all these huge corporations and governments folding and going bankrupt!
